Saint Louis IX (25 April 1214 – 25 August 1270), also known as Louis IX of France, was a medieval king who ruled France from 1226 until his death in 1270. He was deeply devoted to his Christian faith and known for his piety, humility, and commitment to justice. Louis IX was a generous patron of the arts and a strong advocate for the poor and marginalized, promoting numerous charitable works throughout his reign. He played a crucial role in the Seventh and Eighth Crusades, aiming to defend the Holy Land and spread Christianity. Despite facing military challenges, Louis IX’s unwavering faith and dedication to God earned him the title “Saint Louis.” His feast day is celebrated on August 25th, and he is remembered as a model of Christian kingship and virtue.
