Villaret, Guillaume De
Villaret, Guillaume de grand-master of the Knights of St. John of Jerusalem, was born of an old family of Provence. He was at first prior of St. Gilles; in Languedoc, and in 1300 succeeded Odo of Pins as grand-master. His plans for the safety of the order devolved, upon his death, in 1307, upon his brother Foulques (q.v.).
