      Louis XI (1423–1483) was a monarch of the House of Valois who ruled as King of France from 1461 to 1483. He succeeded his father Charles VII. Without direct foreign threats, he was able to eliminate his rebellious vassals, expand royal power, and strengthen the economic development of France. He died in August 1483 and was interred in the Basilica of Notre-Dame de Cléry (near Orléans). Louis XI was succeeded by his son, Charles VIII, who was thirteen. His daughter Anne of France became Regent.
