The knights in Rhodes elected Maurice de Pagnac as Grandmaster but the election was opposed by the Pope, who appointed Gerard de Pins as Vicar. On the death of de Pagnac in 1322, Villaret was briefly reinstated but the knights continued their opposition by electing Hélion de Villeneuve and Villaret finally abdicated in 1323. He died on 15 Sept 1327.
