Lombarda (b. 1190)
Lombarda (b. 1190)
Troubadour of Provence. Born in 1190 in Toulouse.
A poet of Provence in southern France, Lombarda came from Toulouse. Little is known about the details of her life; she married in her teens, and gained a reputation for writing beautiful love poetry. Her troubadour-lover was Bernart Arnaut, a petty noble who became count of Armagnac in 1217, with whom she composed at least one tenson (poem written as a dialogue) which still exists. Lombarda was also a noted proponent of Catharism (also known as Albigensianism), a heretical religious sect popular in southern France during the 12th century.

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).
Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.
Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

- Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
- In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
