I already made a few tribute vids of various European Warriors & Knights, including of Knights of St.John & The Teutonic Order. So now i thought its time for a tribute to the Bravest of the Brave of their time, the Knights Templars. These Die-Hard Catholic Warrior monks charged into the thickest of the saracens no matter how few they were & no matter how numerous the saracens were. During their 200 year existance, they marked their name in the pages of history as some of the most feared, brave & respected warriors. But as time went by, from poor monks they became so rich in money & property, that many princes owed them vast sums of money, including the French King Philip IV 'the Fair' which wasn't so fair afterall. His debts & jealousy made him use his influence over Pope Clement V to abolish them & betrayed the Templars. At dawn on Friday the 13th (henceforth Friday the 13th became a badluck day) October 1307, hundreds of Knights Templars in France were simultaneously arrested by agents of Philip, they were tortured continuously & forced to sign statements of heresy, which were obviously prepared before as Philip's key to be free of his debts. These warriors of Christendom were falsely charged for heresy & were all burned at the stake, including their last Grandmaster Jaques de Molay later in 1312. It is said that the Templars who at the time lived elsewhere, like in Spain & other places secretly left to Scotland & perhaps somewhere else. Many of their wealth were given to the Order of St.John & others. It is said that as the last Grandmaster Jaques de Molay, with a clear conscience but enraged for this vicious betrayal, went by himself to the trial & he recieved the same brutal treatment. When he was being tied up for burning, he cursed King Philip IV & Pope Clement V for their betrayal that they should die before the year's end. Remarkably, both of them died within months. Many false accusations & crap is still being told today on the Templars, from pagan face worshippers to secret muslims to satanists, but the fact is that these warrior monks were deeply religious Catholics & many of them died for the faith of Jesus Christ, while crying out 'Deus Lo Vult' (God Will's It) warcries, without a moment pause. There are accounts of them in the Crusades, especially while Gerard de Ridefort was Grandmaster, being no more than a handful of knights Templars charging straight into 2000 saracens. At the Battle of MontGisard 1177, only 475 Knights Templars under Grandmaster Odo de St Amand & a few 1,000 infantry all led by 16yo King Baldwin IV & Reynald de Chatillion, charged through Saladin's 25-26,000 invading saracen army & smashed them completely, leaving 90% of the saracen army dead & Saladin barely escaped with his life on a racing camel. Hail the Knights Templars
