Home Chalon had succeeded the house of Baux on the principality of Orange with John I of Chalon, husband of Marie des Baux. John II of Chalon succeeded Guillaume (1462-1475) but this prince drew the wrath of Louis XI in conspiring with the Princes and the Duke of Burgundy. In revenge, the dispossessed king Louis II de Chalon and gave the principality Philip Hochberg (1478-1482). Louis regained his field after the King's death in resolving business Provence and lent tribute to Charles VIII. Philibert (1502-1530) was the last prince of the house of Chalon. Orange went into the house of Nassau with René (1530-1544).
