King Louis XII (1462-1515) reigned from 1498-1515. He ascended to the throne when King Charles VIII died childless. Louis had the Pope annul his marriage to Jeanne, the daughter of King Louis XI, so that he could marry Charles' widow, Queen Anne de Bretagne to securely link her region of Brittany to Louis' kingdom of France. After her death in 1514, the 52-year-old King married 18-year-old Mary Tudor, sister of King Henry VIII of England; Louis XII died less than three months later. During his reign, King Louis XII introduced reforms in the judicial system and reduced taxes. These reforms and his caring nature earned him the epithet "Father of the People".
