"A monastic order of Christian warriors, the Knights Templar were created during the Crusades to protect Christian pilgrims visiting the Holy Land. With many wealthy backers in Europe, the Knights were very well armed and armored and became some of the best heavy cavalry fighters in the world. Used as shock troops, the knights would charge the enemy positions, smashing infantry units through sheer weight of momentum. At the Battle of Montisgard, 375 Templar Knights and a couple of thousand infantry surprised and destroyed a force ten times their size under the great Saladin, who barely escaped with his own life."
