Abstract: “The Conquest of Orange” is a twelfth century chansons de geste written during the Capetian reign in the south of France. The poem reflected the society in which it was written and provides insight into the ideas of love and romance during the Middle Ages. The poem was often written about from the standpoint of the poem as a piece of literature. The position of this paper is to examine “The Conquest of Orange” on the basis that the poem reflects societal beliefs of marriage, religion, and romance.
