What is your favorite Knight Military Order?
Who were the Teutonic Knights? I'm unfamiliar with them.
Well I voted for the Knights Templars because of mostly fictional stories...I know they weren't saints during the crusades and they were sneaky bastards with taxes lol...but I don't believe any of the devil worship crap the pope accused them later of...
And do they have to be knights? Because my favorite military group from the Crusaders era was the Hashishin
Shogun the Teutonic Knights were a German Knight Order created during the Crusades.At first they were just like all the other Military Orders,they were treating the wounded,helped the pilgrims and fought against the muslims.Later though they gathered most of their attention in the eastern borders of the Holy Roman Empire of the Germanic Nation and started their own crusades against the pagan peoples of the Baltic Sea.They established castles and gathered too much power there but prefered to discourage the conquered peoples from converting to christianity because they were more useful to them as slaves and victims.And they also loved to plunder and burn in some occasions.
As for the Templars heck they were the first organized bankers in history!Lol!
And they became too corrupted and greedy little by little caring mostly about their castles and lands than their real purpose.As for all the acussations of the Pope against them I don't know if they did become that much corrupted,maybe they did but I read that a curse really works when the person who curses someone has been treated really without justice and is right,but still to curse someone is very bad and it usually comes back to you(from what I've read).And the Grand Magister of the Templars,when he was about to be burned at the stake with many other Templars,cursed the King of France and the Pope to present themselves and explain their actions to God before the end of the year.And in the same year both of them died.
Teutonic Knights FTW! I loved their clothes No, but actually they were pretty strong and had much in their control. Teutonic Knights can be called Hospitallers of Saint Mary, the order was found during the third crusade.
Ok I'm making a totally n00b and lame manner in choosing. I pick Tuetons becauce in Age of Empires they looked so goddamn cool.
That's not lame.I like that!
Ahhhh yes.. AoE.. great game. The Elite Teutonic Knights had the best defence and were really die hards, apart from the Persian elephants, but they were so slow
Templar, without a doubt, not just because of the kick ass knights they were, but also because of how they were destroyed, by an injust scenario of jelousy, which shows how corrupt the world is, and has always been.
The Knights Templar.
Teutonic Knights, based entirely off of Age of Empires 2.
And I don't believe any of the crap about the Templars either.
That's right Greybeard my brother!Hospitalliers!
Yeah, but fully upgraded Teutonic Knights have 10 melee armour.
Knights Templar yay!
