Fibors
b. 1130, France; date of death unknown

The correct spelling of this name is TIBORS.

Tibors was one of the earliest of the female troubadours, poet-musicians who specialized in songs of courtly love. Raimbaut d'Orange, another troubadour, was her brother, and she married Bertrand de Baux, an important and powerful patron of the time. Only a fragment of one of her poems survives; addressed to her husband, it was most likely written before his death in 1181.
