Thought by early scholars to have originated in Badoere, an area near Treviso, Bad Romance actually developed much further north and was so named for its early adoption by a group of 12th century Lombards who named their Alpine village for an area from which they had migrated from one of various Bads in what is now Austria.

Bad Romance is the direct descendant of Romance Novelle, and represents a period in the development of modern Gothic Romance spanning from around 1000ᴀᴅ to about 1600ᴀᴅ, after which the language is considered Early Modern Gothic Romance.
