Sonnenschein and Co.; New York: Macmillan and Co., ), by John Frederick Rowbotham. Troubadours wrote about love in a way that has come to be known as ‘courtly love,’ a kind of poetic game with strict rules about how lovers behave and how they talk about the experience of love.

If the peace fails, Dragonetz' sword will decide the winner and friends will die.
