The Knights Templar were the best-known of the Military Orders that existed during the crusades. Formed somewhere between the years of 1118 and 1120 AD, the Templars went on to amass a great wealth in terms of land, revenue and manpower. This wealth was built through a combination of special privileges and the ingenuity and back-breaking efforts of the Order itself.
The Templars thrived for nearly two centuries, until the year 1307, when the Knights Templar or France were arrested by that country's monarch. Over the next five years, the imprisoned knights, sergeants and serving members were put to torture to extract confessions. Finally, the Templars were dissolved by the papal bull vox in excelso, written by Pope Clement V.
