    Called The Young. Louis soon aroused the opposition of Pope Innocent II (reigned 1130-43) because of his support of a rival to the papal candidate for the archbishopric of
    Bourges, and his lands were placed under papal interdict. Louis next
    fought a 2-year war and conquered Champagne in 1144. In 1147 he joined the
    unsuccessful Second Crusade as one of its two chief military leaders (the
    other was Conrad III of Germany). Louis returned to France two years
    later, and in 1152 his marriage to Eleanor was annulled; in the same year
    she married Henry of Anjou, later Henry II, king of England. Louis warred
    with Henry for the possession of Aquitaine but renounced all rights to the
    duchy in 1154, the year Henry became king of England. Between 1157 and
    1180 Louis continued sporadic warfare against Henry, who held many of the
    French provinces. Louis was succeeded by his son Philip II (Philip
    Augustus).
