Louis IV,

byname LOUIS THE CHILD, German LUDWIG DAS KIND (b. 893, Altötting, Bavaria--d. Sept. 24, 911, Frankfurt), East Frankish king, the last of the East Frankish Carolingians. During his reign the country was ravaged by frequent Magyar raids, and local magnates (the ancestors of the later ducal dynasties) brought Bavaria, Franconia, Swabia, and Saxony under their sway.

A son of the East Frankish king Arnulf, Louis was declared heir to the kingdom in 897, and after Arnulf"s death (899) was crowned king in 900. Later that year a party of Lotharingians, after defeating their king, Zwentibold (Louis" half brother), in an uprising, acknowledged Louis as their sovereign.

Although in theory the boy king was himself the ruler, the government was, in fact, controlled by Archbishop Hatto I of Mainz. The kingdom was, however, too weak to check the raids of the Magyars, which became increasingly frequent after 900. In 910 they defeated a large royal army near Augsburg. Louis died the following year.
