Fiddle (also fiele, viella, vielle, vidula) was one of the favourite instruments of medieval troubadours. It was actively played in Northern Europe throughout the 12th-15th centuries, and even earlier in Southern Europe. The instrument had several different outer shapes; for instance, resembling number eight, oval, pear-shaped, quadrangle, and so on. The number of strings usually amounted from three to five.
