The Knights Templar were established during the Crusades, in order to offer protection to Christian pilgrims as they traveled to the Holy Land. The Templars kept them safe from the turmoil that was rampant in the area during that time. The Knights wore distinctive uniforms that included a white tunic with a blood-red eight-pointed cross on the front. Each member of the Knights Templar had sworn to die for their faith.
As the 12thcentury approached, the Knights Templar took on a greater military duty in the Middle East as part of various Crusades. These heavily armored knights would ride their warhorses into battle, charging enemy lines in an attempt to break through the opposition and became known as extremely fierce warriors.
