St. Louis

About Saint Louis

Saint Louis is the only canonized king of France. He reigned in France from 1226 until he died in 1270. Saint Louis is also known as King Louis IX and Louis II, Count of Artois. Saint Louis was born in Poissy which is located near Paris. His father was Louis III and his mother was Blanche of Castile.

Saint Louis Crowned King

Saint Louis was crowned king at the young age of twelve when his father died. His mother ruled as a regent until Saint Louis was older, somewhere around 1234. His mother remained Saint Louis’ advisor until she died in 1252.

 Saint Louis Patron Saint

When Saint Louis was twenty years old, he married Marguerite of Provence. Her sister was married to Henry III of England.

Saint Louis Fought in the Crusades

Saint Louis fought in two crusades, the Seventh Crusade in 1248 and the Eighth Crusade in 1270. He was also revered for his kindness and charity toward the needy.

Saint Louis Captured

Saint Louis was captured by the Egyptians on April 6, 1250 when he lost the Battle of Fariskur. He was released when a ransom of 400,000 livres toumois was paid. The Templars loaned the money to the king for his release.

After Saint Louis was released, he went to the crusader Kingdoms of Acre, Caesarea, and Jaffe. He assisted the crusaders in building up their armies and meeting with diplomacy with Syria and Egypt who were Islamic. Saint Louis also erected a garrison to protect the French in the Middle East from Islamic attacks.

Saint Louis Christian Prince

Saint Louis was a devout Catholic and was seen as a Christian prince. He built the Sainte-Chapelle in the royal palace located in Paris. Saint Louis bought relics of the True Cross of Jesus Christ to place in the shrine.

Saint Louis considered himself to be a “lieutenant of God on Earth”. He himself led two crusades, although they were a failure. Throughout his reign, Saint Louis tried to be the protector of the Church.

Saint Louis Canonized

Saint Louis was canonized by Pope Boniface VIII in 1297. The Congregation of the Sisters of Saint Louis was founded in 1842 in honor of Saint Louis.

The feast of Saint Louis is celebrated on August 25. Many Catholics, especially those of French heritage, wear a Saint Louis medal or a Saint Louis pendant in honor of St. Louis of France who spent his life protecting the Catholic Church from invaders and heresy.
