Bernart Marti was a troubadour, composing poems and satires in Occitan, in the mid twelfth century. Nine or ten of his poems survive; they show that he was influenced by his contemporaries Marcabru and knew Peire d'Alvernha, whom, in one poem, he accused of abandoning holy orders. Along with Peire, Gavaudan, and Bernart de Venzac he is sometimes placed in a hypothetical Marcabrunian school. His work is "enigmatic, ironic, and satiric", but has no following among later troubadours, according to Gaunt and Kay.
