Geoffrey Chaucer

Happy Valentine’s Day! In honor of this day, we’re highlighting Geoffrey Chaucer‘s Geni profile. Dubbed the “Father of English literature,” Chaucer is widely considered the greatest English poet of the Middle Ages. It was during Chaucer’s time that Valentine’s Day first became associated with romantic love. His poem, Parlement of Foules, made one of the first references to the idea that Valentine’s Day was a special day for lovers.

Geoffrey Chaucer is connected to over 67 million people in Geni’s World Family Tree. How are you related?
