Andrea Capellano (Capellanus meaning “chaplain”), also known as Andrew the Chaplain, and occasionally by a French translation of his name, André le Chapelain, was the 12th-century author of a treatise commonly known as De amore (“About Love”), and often known in English, somewhat misleadingly, as The Art of Courtly Love, though it’s realistic, somewhat cynical tone suggests that it is in some measure an antidote to courtly love. Little is known of Andreas Capellanus’s life, but he is presumed to have been a courtier of Marie de Champagne, and probably of French origin (from Wikipedia)
