1505 ca1580 ca
a Spanish writer best known as the author of romances in verse. Little is known of Lorenzo de Sepúlveda's life. He descended from a notable family and lived most or all of his life in Seville. In 1551 a volume of narrative poems that he had written, Romances nueuamente sacados de historias antiguas de la crónica de España (Romances newly drawn from antique stories of the chronicle of Spain), was published with considerable success. Another work usually attributed to this author is a comedy in prose in the style of the Italian commedia dell'arte, first performed circa 1565; it is known as the Comedia de Sepúlveda. Although the style of the play is very different from that of the romances, and although there are few clues to the identity of the author, Lorenzo de Sepúlveda remains the best candidate.
