William of Chalon, count of Auxerre, was killed in August 1304 during the battle of Mons-en-Pévèle. His son, John II of Chalon was then only 12 years old and his aunt Eleanor of Savoy ensured the regency. She then minted coins in her name. On June 27, 1308, when she married Dreux of Mello, the regency was entrusted to John II's grandfather, John I of Chalon.
