Chretien de Troyes was by far the most prolific and influential writer of French narrative poetry in the twelfth century. Of his life nothing definite is known. The appellation "de Troyes" could mean that he was born there or simply that he was connected with the town and, probably, with the court of Champagne. The identification of Chretien with a certain canon of St. Loup, near Troyes, mentioned in records in 1173, has no supporting evidence, nor has the suggestion that, since Chretien (Christianus) was a name frequently adopted by converts, he was of Jewish origin.
