This article makes three contributions to the study of Ausiàs March's poetry. First, it identifies and documents with unedited archival material the lady to whom March dedicated poem 23, his eulogy 'Lleixant a part l'estil dels trobadors'. The 'dona Teresa' addressed in the eulogy was a noblewoman, Teresa d'Híxar. Second, the article argues that Teresa d'Híxar is actually the dedicatee of the entire poetic cycle addressed to 'Llir entre cards'. Thereby, the poetic cycle can be dated between 1425 and ca. 1442. Last, this article studies the reception of poem 23, which as early as 1451 became a model of laus to several courtly poets, including Lleonard de Sos and Hugo de Urriés.
