Louis was the son of Jean de Rochechouart, vicomte de Rochechouart, and Jeanne de Sully, dame de Maupas et de Brion. About February 1355 he married Marie Vigier, dame de Javerlhac. Their son Jean II would have progeny.

In 1357 the Treaty of Bretigny granted Poitou and Limousin to the crown of England. Rochechouart was thus delivered up to the English in 1362. Nevertheless, Louis refused to submit to the troops of Edward III and the Black Prince, and was imprisoned by the latter in 1364. When he was freed, he rushed to the court of Charles V to renew his allegiance and rejoin Bertrand Du Guesclin's troops. Reprisals for this came swiftly, with English troops allied to local French lords unsuccessfully laying siege to Rochechouart, recaptured several times by the viscounts. The town and castle's fortification remained unbroken, but the surrounding lands were pillaged and devastated. The French king himself sympathised and granted Louis the chвtellenie of Rochefort. Louis, councillor and chamberlain of Charles V, and his lieutenant in Limousin, fought on Du Guesclin's side in the reconquest of Poitou in 1372-73.

The conduct of viscounts Simon, Jean and Louis de Rochechouart during the Hundred Years' War allowed the Rochechouart family to attain the highest reaches of the 15th century French feudal hierarchy. Louis, who died in 1394, was involved in the campaigns that returned the French kings to the throne of France, and was called cousin by the king.

The three viscounts who succeeded Louis - Jean II, Geoffrey and Foucaud - were counsellors and chamberlains to kings Charles VI, Charles VII and Louis XI. By their marriages they expanded their territories, receiving the fiefdoms of Berry and Poitou. Within the king's armies, the viscounts were 'chevaliers bannerets', at the head of important troops of knights, horsemen and men at arms. Supporters of the Crown of France during the civil war which marked the reign of Charles VI, they participated in the great battles of the Hundred Years' War during that century.
