Louis I d'Orléans, duc de Longueville

Louis I d'Orléans, Duke of Longueville (1480 – Beaugency, 1 August 1516), was a French aristocrat and general, Grand Chamberlain of France and governor of Provence.

Louis was the second son of François I, Duke of Longueville, and Agnes of Savoy.[1] He succeeded his elder brother François II in 1512, and became Duke of Longueville, Count of Montgommery, Count of Tancarville, Prince of Châlet-Aillon, Marquis of Rothelin and viscount of Abberville.

On 16 August 1513, Louis was taken prisoner by the English at the battle of the Spurs[2] when he attempted to bring relief to the siege of Thérouanne. He was sent to Catherine of Aragon, who first lodged him in the Tower of London while she dealt with the Scottish invasion and the battle of Flodden. Longueville was treated very well in England, having a relationship with Jane Popincourt.[3] He stood in for Louis XII of France in the marriage ceremony with Mary Tudor in Greenwich Palace on 13 August 1514.[4]

Louis married in 1504, Johanna of Hachberg-Sausenberg ( –1543),[5] daughter of Philip of Hochberg.
