Martim Padrozelos
Jogral medieval

Nationality: Galega?

Biographical Note:

Nothing is known of this author, whose path we can only assume from indirect data. Therefore, the placement of his compositions in the italian aphographs, in a zone where minstrels are dominant, as well as his references to the hermitage of S. Salvador of Valongo, seem to point to a galician minstrel, maybe natural of the current Perozelo (or Peroselo), name of a village in the parish of S. Miguel de Águas Santas (Cotobade, Pontevedra), as suggested by Souto Cabo1, even because, as he adds, "at a very short distance (400m) we find Valongo, head of the parish of the same name and toponym also quoted in two cantigas of the poet". Like the authors around him, he should have lived in the middle or final 13th century.
