Louis X (4 October 1289 – 5 June 1316), called the Quarrelsome, the Headstrong, or the Stubborn, was King of France from 1314 and King of Navarre as Louis I from 1305 until his death. He abolished slavery, 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 by Grand Chamberlain Enguerrand de Marigny under the reign of his father. Louis' uncle—Charles of Valois, leader of the feudalist party—managed to convince the king to execute Enguerrand de Marigny.
