Description

Knights Templar or the Order of the Temple (French: Ordre du Temple or Templiers) . were among the most famous of the Western Christian military orders. The organization existed for approximately two centuries in the Middle Ages. It was founded in the aftermath of the First Crusade of 1096 . to ensure the safety of the many Europeans who made the pilgrimage to Jerusalem after its conquest.

Officially endorsed by the Roman Catholic Church in 1129 . the Order became a favored charity across Europe and grew rapidly in membership and power. Templar knights in their distinctive white mantles with red cross were among the best fighting units of the Crusades. Non-combatant members of the Order managed a large economic infrastructure throughout Christendom . inventing or adapting many financial techniques that were an early form of banking . and building many fortifications across Europe and the Holy Land.

The Templars' success was tied closely to the Crusades; when the Crusaders suffered defeat and lost the Holy Land . support for the Order faded. Rumors about the Templars' secret initiation ceremony created mistrust . and King Philip IV of France . deeply in debt to the Order . began pressuring Pope Clement V to take action. In 1307 . King Philip had many of the Order's members in France arrested . tortured into giving false confessions . and burned at the stake. In 1312 . Pope Clement V . under continuing pressure from King Philip . disbanded the Order. The abrupt disappearance of a major part of the European infrastructure gave rise to speculation and legends . which have kept the "Templar" name alive until the present.

This classic medieval style sword features a stainless steel 36" blade with intricate etching. The cast metal handle, guard, and pommel offer Knights Templar imagery that enhances the overall appearance of this fine collectible item. This sword measures 47" overall in length and includes hardwood display plaque for presentation of the item.
