La Comtessa de Dia

The Comtessa de Dia (Countess of Die), possibly named Beatritz or Isoarda, was a trobairitz. She is only known as the comtessa de Dia in contemporary documents, but was most likely the daughter of Count Isoard II of Diá (a town northeast of Montelimar in southern France). According to her vida, she was married to William of Poitiers, but was in love with and sang about Raimbaut of Orange (1146-1173).
