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 emancipated serfs who could buy their freedom and readmitted Jews into the kingdom. His short reign in France was marked by tensions with the nobility, due to fiscal and centralisation reforms initiated during the reign of his father by Grand Chamberlain Enguerrand de Marigny.

Did King Louis X rule moderately?
The article Louis X of France: The Stubborn King - The European Middle Ages declared:
Philip (IV) told his son (Louis X) to rule moderately and to listen to his uncle's advice.

He was known as Louis the Quarrelsome and his reign as King of France and Navarre was short!
Clementia of Hungary was buried not at St Denis but at the now destroyed Couvent des Jacobins in Paris.
Her coffin was discovered during its demolition in the early 1800's and moved to St Denis during the Bourbon Restoration.
