Discover the leaders of the Knights Templar, the fiercest warriors of the Church during the Crusades, from beginning to end. Download FREE with Kindle Unlimited! The Knights Templar is one of history’s greatest mysteries. They began as a completely transparent, public apparatus of European Christendom in the Middle Ages but eventually transformed into what many would regard as a secret society. Leading the Knights throughout these changes were their Grand Masters. These men were military as well as spiritual masters who led by their own example. Their dedication was shown by their steadfast refusal to surrender or retreat from battle, and several of them paid for that dedication with their lives or freedom. This book follows all of these colossal figures from the Templars’ founder Hugues de Payens all the way to their final ill-fated Grand Master, Jacques de Molay. Here you will find innumerable accounts of epic battles as well as all the intrigue and political wrangling that came along with the Crusades. This book follows the rise and fall of the Crusader Kingdom of the High Middle Ages as seen through the eyes of the ultimate caretaker of the Holy Land—the Templar Grand Masters. During their tenure, most served with great distinction and nobility, but a few revealed motives not entirely becoming of their chivalrous order. After some 200 years of service, the Templars and their Grand Masters were abruptly disbanded in the early 1300s, widely believed to have fallen victim to the corruption and political intrigue of the day. The Templar's history spanning from the 1100s to the early 1300s, as generally told, is more than enough to make for a riveting telling of events. But some believe that’s not the end of the story. Could it be that the Knights Templar have secretly continued to exist throughout history? Could freemasonry and its tradition of referring to its leadership as Grand Masters be a part of this tradition?
