Description:
Ramon Berenguer IV (1195 – 19 August 1245), Count of Provence and <span lang="fr">Forcalquier</span>, was the son of Alfonso II of Provence and Garsenda of Sabran, heiress of <span lang="fr">Forcalquier</span>. After his father's death (1209), Ramon was imprisoned in the castle of Monzón, in Aragon until he was able to escape in 1219 and claim his inheritance. He was a powerful and energetic ruler who added <span lang="fr">Forcalquier</span> to his domain. Giovanni Villani in his Nuova Cronica had this to say about Raymond:<blockquote>Count Raymond was a lord of gentle lineage, and kin to them of the house of Aragon, and to the family of the count of Toulouse, By inheritance Provence, this side of the Rhone, was his; a wise and courteous lord was he, and of noble state and virtuous, and in his time did honourable deeds, and to his court came all gentle persons of Provence and of France and of Catalonia, by reason of his courtesy and noble estate, and he made many Provençal coblas and canzoni of great worth.Giovanni Villani, Rose E. Selfe, ed. (1906), Villani's Chronicle, Being Selections from the First Nine Books of the Croniche Fiorentine of Giovanni Villani (London: Archibald Constable & Co.), 196. The Provençal coblas and cansos referred to do not survive and Ramon Berenguer is not listed among the troubadours, though he was their patron.
