Dame Maroie

Musical Artist


Who is Dame Maroie?

Dame Maroie was a trouvère from Arras, in Picardy, France. She debates Dame Margot in a jeu parti, or debate song, "Je vous pri, dame Maroie." This song survives in two manuscripts, which each give separate and unrelated melodies. In two manuscripts she is credited with a fragment of a song, "Mout m'abelist quant je voi revenir." Dame Maroie is the addressee in a grand chant by Andrieu Contredit d'Arras. She was identified as the Maroie de Dregnau de Lille from whom a single strophe of a single chanson remains, "Mout m'abelist quant je voi revenir", along with its music.
