Prince Jaufré Rudel, prince of Blaye (in Gironde), fell in love with Odierne, countess of Tripoli, crossed the ocean to see her, and died in her arms. George R. R. Martin really likes to break all notions of chivalry and romance, as I believe Joffrey Baratheon is the warped opposite of this lyrical idealization of knights and love in the Midde Ages.

Prince Jaufré Rudel, prince de Blaye (en Gironde) a tombé amoureux avec Odierne, comtesse de Tripoli, débaraqué à Tripoli, et serait mort dans ses bras. George R. R. Martin aime casser tous les sentiments de chivalrie et romance, comme Joffrey Baratheon est l’opposé de cette idéalisation de la poésie lyrique du moyen âge.
