Knights Templar was an organization of Christian Knights, founded in 1099 after the liberation of Jerusalem during the First Crusade, tasked with defending Christian pilgrims in Jerusalem.

The Templars are NOT the same as the Templars of the Assassin's Creed video game series. While based on the Knights Templar, the Templars in the games are a philosophical order while the actual Templars were a religious order.
