Louis' paternal grandparents were Louis XIII of France and Anna of Austria. His maternal grandparents were Philip IV of Spain and Elisabeth of France. Elisabeth was a younger sister of Louis XIII, while Philip IV was a brother of Anna of Austria; thus, Louis' parents were double-first-cousins to each other.
