"Louis is overlooked in most lists of English monarchs."

Well, yes. I'd suggest there is a good reason for that and it's the same reason as, for example, Harald Hardrada. Making a claim and having some supporters who think you'd be a better king than the then incumbent isn't actually the same as being crowned and generally recognised as being king.

Alexander was not there to give homage for his kingdom, but for his properties in England and France. A subtle distinction now, but very a significant difference then.
