BIOGRAPHY Louis was born about 920, the son of Charles III 'the Simple', king of France, and Eadgifu of Wessex, a daughter of Edward 'the Elder', king of England. Called 'd'Outremer' or 'Transmarinus' ('from overseas'), he reigned as king of France from 936 to 954. He was member of the Carolingian dynasty. He was only two years old when his father was deposed by the nobles, who set up Robert I in his place. When Louis was only three, Robert died and was replaced by Raoul, duke of Burgundy. Raoul's ally Heribert II, comte de Vermandois, took Charles III captive by treachery and the young Louis' mother took the boy 'over the sea' to the safety of England, hence his epithet. Charles III died in 929, but Raoul ruled on until 936, when Louis was summoned back to France unanimously by the nobles, especially Hugues 'the Great', duke of The Franks and count of Paris, who had probably organised his return to prevent Heribert II, or Raoul's brother Hugues 'the Black', taking the throne. He was crowned king at Laon by Artald, archbishop of Reims, on Sunday 19 June 936. Effectively, his sovereignty was limited to the town of Laon and to some places in the north of France, but Louis displayed a keenness beyond his years in obtaining the recognition of his authority by his feuding nobles. Nonetheless, his reign was filled with conflict, in particular with Hugues 'the Great'. In 939 Louis became involved in a struggle with the Emperor Otto I 'the Great' on the question of Lorraine, but then he married Otto's sister Gerberga von Sachsen, the widow of Giselbert II of Lorraine. Louis and Gerberga had eight children of whom three would have progeny. In November 942 he lost Lorraine and part of Burgundy. On 13 July 945 at Rouen he was captured by the Vikings who handed him over to Hugues 'the Great'. After his release he settled at Compiègne on 1 July 946. Louis was about thirty-four when he died, on 10 September 954 in Reims, after a fall from his horse. He is interred at the basilica of Saint Rémi in Reims. His widow became regent for their son. In 959 she became abbess of Notre Dame in Soissons. She died in Reims on 5 May 984.
