Hippolyte Lefèbvre, Louis IX, c. 1927, bronze, Basilique du Sacré Cœur, Paris

Louis IX was the king of France from 1226 to 1270.  He was a pious monarch and instituted reforms to help the poor.  He led two crusades, first to Egypt, and then to Tunisia, where he died of the plague.

Aside from those seen above, his final attribute is a scepter, typically the distinct French scepter topped by a hand.
