Friedrich Christian Diez (1794 - 1876 ) was a German Romanist. He finished high school ("Gymnasium") and university in his home town of Gießen (1811–16) and continued studying in Göttingen (1816–18). His major was classic Philologie and modern languages as well as literature, which he studied under Friedrich Gottlieb Welcker. He also translated works of Lord Byron and Walter Scott and started to take an interest in Medieval literature. In 1813 he participated in the war against Napoleon. After meeting Goethe he began to take in interest in the poetry of the Troubadours. This is his first work on the subject.
