Engenim d'Urre de Valentinès was a troubadour, possibly from Eurre. He wrote an undatable sirventes attacking "evil barons" that begins Pois pres s'en fui qe non troba guirensa. Internal evidence may suggest he was a valvassor. The song is found in the sixteenth-century Italian paper manuscript known as chansonnier a. His name is written Engenim Durre in the mansucript, and another possible correction of this is En Genim, meaning "Sir Genim".
