(? - 1557)
Gil Vicente passed his life in Portugal. He was of good family, although his history is far from certain. During his years at the Portuguese court he wrote many plays, a large number in Spanish with Spanish motives. See Menénez y Pelayo's Antología de poetas líricos castellanos (Madrid, 1890-1908, vol. ii).
