There are a number of coins with the name of Charles X under the France Royals, like:
Douzain - Charles X
Denier Tournois - Charles X (Troyes)
Double Tournois - Charles X (Troyes mint)
Denier Tournois - Charles X (Dijon)
Double Tournois - Charles X (Dijon mint)

However, Charles X is not listed as a ruler for France Royals. Is he missing from the list?

This particular Charles X was not the 19th century ruler (obviously), but a pretender, cardinal Charles de Bourbon. (It appears that the coin issues in his name were mostly made after he had already lost.)

I'm not sure what (if anything) was decided on how to count pretenders for ruling authorities so far, so I cannot comment any further.

I really want to get one of those "Charles X" coins now though! But they're probably expensive...

Good explanation.

Should an Interregnum period be added during those days then, namely after Henry III and during Henry IV (1590-1595)? or should it be counted as a Pretender ruler?
