Louis XII, called "the Father of the People" was the thirty-fifth king of France and the sole monarch from the Valois-Orléans branch of the House of Valois. He reigned from 1498 to 1515 and pursued a very active foreign policy.

Due to the tradition of Salic Law, which did not allow women to inherit the throne of France, he was succeeded through the inheritance of his eldest daughter, Claude, by a cousin, her husband Francis I Valois-Angoulême, who founded his own line of French kings.
