      Louis XI (3 July 1423 – 30 August 1483), called the Prudent was the King of France from 1461 to 1483. He was the son of Charles VII of France and Mary of Anjou, a member of the House of Valois.

Shrewd and often vicious, he spun webs of plot and conspiracy which earned him the nicknames the Cunning and The Universal Spider.
