Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon

Knights Templar: Around 1119 CE, King Baldwin II of Jerusalem agreed to grant the request to form a monastic order for the protection of the pilgrims traveling to the Holy Land in Jerusalem. This request of this new order came from a French knight, Hugues de Payens, and his relative Godfrey de Saint-Omer. The Order took the name of the Poor Knights of Christ and the Temple of Solomon, or "#Templar" #knights.
