King Louis I of Spain (Spanish: Luis, August 25, 1707 – August 31, 1724), born Louis-Philippe of Spain, was the eldest son of Philip V of Spain by his first Queen consort, Maria Louisa of Savoy.
On 20 January 1722 he married Louise Elisabeth of Orléans (1709–1742), a daughter of Philippe II, Duc d'Orléans. She did not fit into the religious Spanish court well and she often refused to speak to her husband. There were no children of the marriage.
Louis ruled for a short period between the time his father Philip V abdicated in his favour (15 January 1724) and his death from smallpox, just over 7 months later. On his death his father returned to the throne.

Louise-Elisabeth of Orléans, called Mademoiselle de Montpensier (Versailles, December 11, 1709 — Paris June 16, 1742), was Queen consort of Spain.
Louise-Elisabeth was one of the many daughters of Regent Philippe of Orléans and Françoise-Marie de Bourbon, herself a legitimized daughter of Louis XIV.

Because no one was interested in her as a child, Louise-Elisabeth d'Orléans received a poor education and seemed destined for marriage with some obscure German or Italian prince.
Since 1715, her father was Regent for the infant Louis XV and the de facto ruler of France. In 1718 war broke out between France and Spain. In 1720 King Philip V of Spain wanted to make peace and proposed a double marriage: his three-year-old daughter Mariana Victoria of Spain would marry Louis XV, and his son and heir Louis would marry one of the Regent's daughters. By that time, Mademoiselle de Montpensier was the Regent's only unmarried daughter.
Therefore, in 1721 Louise-Elisabeth, just 12 years old, left for Madrid. Her reception by the Spanish royal family was cold, especially by Queen Elisabeth Farnese, but on January 20, 1722, she married Louis of Spain.
As wife of the heir to the Spanish throne, Louise-Elisabeth was spied upon and accused of all sorts of wrongdoings. Her poor education hindered her ability to adapt to the Spanish court, and she reacted by withdrawing emotionally and exhibiting odd behaviour, like walking around naked and burping and breaking wind in public.
