Personal details
Died 18 September 1443

Lewis of Luxembourg (or Louis II de Luxembourg; died 1443) was a medieval Archbishop of Rouen and Bishop of Ely.

He was a younger son of John of Luxembourg, Lord of Beauvoir and Marguerite of Enghien.

Lewis was elected to Rouen in 1436. He was the leading native administrator/collaborator with the Lancastrian regime in France. As its position weakened, his own fortunes and even personal safety became precarious. Although Rouen did not fall to Charles VII until late 1449, well after Luxembourg's death, Henry VI's government had long ago decided he needed and deserved remuneration and status based more securely in England. Thus he was provided to Ely 'in commendam' on 27 September 1437.[1] This was the fifth wealthiest see in England, yet also amongst the smallest in terms of size or burden. He is not known ever to have visited it. He died on 18 September 1443.[1]
