- King of France (1314-1316).
Philip IV the Fair's eldest son, who became King of Navarre on his mother's death in 1305, succeeded his father on the throne of France in 1314. Louis the Stubborn's short reign (it lasted only eighteen months) was marked by strong feudal reaction to his father's policies and revolt against the advisers who had served him. Louis X was married to Margaret of Burgundy in 1305 but he repudiated her in 1314 because of her misbehaviour. He had her imprisoned and strangled in 1315. The king's untimely death, leaving his second wife, Clemenza of Hungary pregnant, posed the problem of the royal succession for the first time since the days of Hugh Capet. Until such time as the child was born, the regency was provided by the dead king's brother, Philip.
