Louis X (4 October 1289 – 5 June 1316), known as the Quarrelsome (French: le Hutin), was King of France from 1314 and King of Navarre as Louis I from 1305 until his death. He freed Serfs who couldn't buy their freedom and allowed Jews into the Kingdom. His short reign was marked by tensions with the Nobility, due to economic reforms started during the reign of his father Philip IV. He was succeeded by his son John I.
