Dates: 1149 - 1170 ()
Peire d’Alvernhe (d’Alvernha) (fl. 1149-1170) was an Auvergnat troubadour with about twenty surviving works. He composed the trobar clus, or "closed style," which was very complex and only for the most discerning patrons. According to his vida, Peire was a burgher’s son from the Diocese of Clermont. He stands out as the earliest troubadour mentioned by name in Dante’s Divine Comedy.
