Murphysboro Centuries, 13th secular

Louis IX, “St. Louis”, 1226-1270,
- the ideal medieval king, renowned for his justice and bravery - 1244, went on his first crusade, but it was poorly managed, he was captured and most of his army was killed - in 1270 went on another crusade where he died of disease - he was the first king to issue laws to the whole nation solely on his own authority
