Main Events

As Charles II was only a child during his short reign, the duchy was administered by his mother as regent, and the two lieutenants general of Savoy and Piedmont that
she appointed, François de Savoie, Archbishop of Auch, and
Charles' great-uncle Philippe (later Philippe II, Duke of Savoy).[3] He died on his return to Moncalieri after spending winter in Turin.[1]
