Knights Templar Fact Two

The Knights Hospitaller was another monastic military order founded at the same place and time as the Knights Templar: 1119 AD in Jerusalem. While it was the initial stated purpose of the Knights Templar to protect the traveling pilgrims it was the Knights Hospitaller that actually served this role in the early years as the Knights Templar explored the Temple Mount.
