Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Louis from Overseas

Answer: Louis IV

Louis IV (920/1-954), known as d'Outremer or Transmarinus (both meaning "from overseas") gained his name from spending much of his childhood overseas in the English court after his father was captured and dethroned. During his reign (936-954) he attempted to assert authority over the Frankish region of Lotharingia (the Low Countries) and Normandy.
2. Also Louis I of Navarre

Answer: Louis X

King Louis X (1285-1316) was variously known the Quarrelsome, the Headstrong, or the Stubborn. A major cause of Louis quarreling with the nobility was his attempt to reform the practice of serfdom in France. While he was King of France for only two years (1314-1316), he also ruled as King of Navarre from 1305 until 1316 because his mother Joan had been the previous Queen Regnant.

His successor was his posthumous son John, who was the youngest monarch in French history.
3. Son of Charlemagne

Answer: Louis I

Louis I (778-840), also known as the Pious, the Fair, or the Debonair, was the sole surviving legitimate son of Emperor Charlemagne. During his reign (813-840), Louis faced several challenges, including civil war where his chief opponents were his sons.

In addition, he faced rebellion from several of the tribal groups which his father had conquered and made part of empire. He added Barcelona to his empire.
4. Last Carolingian monarch in France

Answer: Louis V

Louis V (966/7-987), known as Louis the Do-Nothing, was the last king in West Frankia from the Carolingian Dynasty. His elected successor, Hugh Capet, founded the Capetian Dynasty which was also the origin of the Valois and Bourbon dynasties. Though Louis had been formally co-king with his father since 979, his personal rule did not begin until 986.

He died from a fall from his horse while hunting near the town of Senlis.
5. Canonized by the Catholic Church

Answer: Louis IX

Louis IX (1214-1270) is known as St. Louis or Louis the Saint. During his rule (1226-1270), Louis gained a reputation throughout Europe for morality and fairness. Other rulers were known on several occasions to ask him to arbitrate their disputes. Highly religious, he was a participant in both the Seventh and Eight Crusades, and died during the later.

He was canonized by Pope Boniface VIII in 1297. Many places are named after him including the city of St. Louis, MO.
6. Both fat and a warrior

Answer: Louis VI

The nicknames of Louis VI (1081-1137) included "the Fat" and "the Fighter". Louis spent much of his reign battling the "robber barons" who harassed travellers and peasants in France. When not busy with that, he battled the English crown over who would control Normandy. He would be succeeded by his son, Louis VII.
7. Louis the Stammerer

Answer: Louis II

Louis II (846-879) was also known as Louis the Stammerer. With a short reign (877-879), Louis was seen as a relatively weak king both politically and physically. He died while on campaign against the Vikings. Three of his sons would later be kings of West Frankia.
8. Died after fracturing his skull

Answer: Louis III

Louis III (863/65-882) was co-king of West Frankia along with his brother Carloman II (866-884). The territory control by Louis III covered much of northern France. He died due to striking his head on a lintel while mounting his horse. He fell from the horse and fractured his skull. Surprisingly King Charles VIII of France also died following striking his head on a lintel.
9. Proclaimed King of England, but not crowned

Answer: Louis VIII

Louis VIII (1187-1226), also known as the Lion, would rule France from 1223 until 1226. He would lay a claim to England in 1216 and 1217 before he became King of France, having invaded England during the First Baron's War against King John. His control of over half of England was sufficient for a group of the Barons to proclaim him king, but he was never formally crowned. Louis renounced his claim to England after being excommunicated by Pope Honorius III.
10. Married to Eleanor of Aquitaine

Answer: Louis VII

Louis VII (1120-1180) was known as the Young or the Younger because he was still in his teens when he became king in 1137. His first wife was Eleanor of Aquitaine. He had their marriage annulled in 1152 when they did not yet have any male children to add to their two daughters. Eleanor went on to marry the future Henry II of England, with whom she had nine children. Louis went on to marry twice more to get his desired male heir.
