Saint Louis of Toulouse (9 February 1274 – 19 August 1297), was a member of the royal House of Anjou and the younger brother of King Robert of Naples.

He was appointed as the Archbishop of Toulouse at a young age, displaying great humility and pastoral care in his role. Saint Louis of Toulouse was known for his charitable work, particularly his care for the poor and the sick. He died at the age of 23 in 1297, and his feast day is celebrated on August 19th. Saint Louis of Toulouse is venerated as a patron saint of the Franciscan Third Order and is remembered for his holiness, piety, and his dedication to a life of poverty and service to others.
