The Knights Templar Order was established in 1118 to ensure the custody of the Holy places and to protect the pilgrimage routes. The Knights Templar Order reached its peak in the 13th Century. The Knights Templar considered themselves as knights of God, protectors of the church and Christianity. Their motto was:"NON NOBIS, DOMINE, NON NOBIS, SED TUO NOMINI DA GLORIAM". "Give Glory, not for us, God, not for us, but for your name".
The medieval Knights Templar fought alongside King Richard I (Richard The Lion Hearted) and other Crusaders in the battles for the Holy Lands.
