In some manuscript traditions, it's 'nullo', not 'nulla' (r. 12)
What do you know about that, and what do you think is a good translation of the sentence when you'd use 'nullo' instead of 'nulla'?
I think I'd say (in Dutch):
door mij bemind zoals zij door geen bemind zal worden (in English: loved by me like she would be loved by no one)
When it's 'nulla' (like the usual manuscript tradition) it's: door mij bemind zoals geen bemind zal worden (loved by me like no one would be loved)

What would you do with 'nullo'?

The thing with nullo is that by saying "[she will be loved by me] as much as she will be loved by no one", he's saying that she won't be loved at all [my love = no one's love = no love], and I can't see that jibing with the next line, "pro qua mihi sunt magna bella pugnata" (on behalf of whom many large wars were fight).
