Raymond IV Count of Toulouse

John Hugh Hill
 5 stars




Les comtes de Toulouse et leur entourage: XIIe-XIIIe siècles : rivalités, alliances et jeux de pouvoir (Bibliothèque historique Privat) (Unknown Binding)

Laurent Macé
 5 stars

Only available in French. An excellent book, but very detailed and probably of interest only to historians and medieval enthusiasts..


Ermengard of Narbonne and the World of the Troubadours

Frederic L Cheyette
 5 stars

Despite its academic genesis, this is a wonderful book dealing with the world of Occitania - Occitan culture, the Counts of Toulouse and other local rulers, the troubadours and even the Cathars. The author manages to combine the highest standards of scholarship with a sense of wonder and deep affection for his subject. Highly recommended.



Kill Them All!

Lènor Tancred
 5 stars

A novel set in the years before and during the Cathar Wars. A good introduction to the world of the Counts of Toulouse in the Thirteenth Century. The book ranges widely and is well researched, though almost all of the 236 footnotes are more distracting than helpful. The text is relable on most of the historical events covered, although as a novel it does not purport to be factually accurate, concentrating instead on exploring themes of leadership and manipulation.
