Gaucelm Faidit (c. 1170 – c. 1202) was a troubadour, born in Uzerche, in the Limousin, from a family of knights in service of the count of Turenne. In 1202 he set out on the Fourth Crusade, as did his current patron, Boniface of Montferrat. After 1202 there is no further historical trace of him. Seventy of his poems, fourteen of which have melodies, are extant.
