minstrel: "March of the Kings"

I'm hoping someone here can send me to some authoritative sources on the history of the Provencal carol "March of the Kings" or "La Marche Des Rois Mages" or "March of Turenne". Most sources say it's from 13th century Provence, but some claim it was written by Lully in praise of Turenne. Does anybody have any sources showing the tune existed prior to Lully?
