"Nobleman, soldier and poet. He was one of the most important poets of the Golden Age in Valencia and a key figure in Valencian literature."

The son of the knight and poet Pere March and Leonor Ripoll, he was born in 1397 and died in Valencia in 1459. Valencia, Alicante and Gandía all vie for the distinction of his birthplace. As a young man he took part in the expeditions of King Alfonso V 'the Magnanimous' around the Mediterranean. He was the king's falconer, and in 1420 the Infante Don Juan, Duke of Gandía, confirmed his feudal privileges. In 1437 he married Isabel Martorell, the sister of Joanot Martorell, author of the chivalresque work 'Tirant lo Blanch'. He was the first cultivated Valencian poet who broke with the tradition of using the Provençal dialect. His work comprises 143 poems, and is characterised by a novel conjunction of themes and forms inherited from the troubadours and from the 'dolce stil novo', and reflections on doctrine and philosophy.
