Nuno Peres Sandeu
Trovador medieval

Nationality: Portuguesa?

Biographical Note:

Portuguese troubadour, of whom nothing is known. His surname is present in the Book of Lineages of Count Dom Pedro as of descendents of an asturian knight that would have followed Count Dom Henrique to Portugal in the end of the 11th century. As for the rest, as Resende de Oliveira informs us1, during the 13th century some members of this lineage had assets in Aguiar da Pena (Vila Pouca de Aguiar, Trás-os-Montes). But nothing of concrete has been possible to determine about this troubadour.
