 The Night of The Templars


Exclusive to dark soul events.

In 1231AD England's King, Henry III, was anxious about what would happen to his body on his death. The London Templars, who already held some of the King's Treasury as bankers, agreed to take care of this delicate matter. In return, the King granted his own Manor & Soke of Rothley to the Templars. As the Order had done in other places, the Templars established a Preceptory at Rothley to control their interests as Lords of the Manor. The buildings at Rothley comprised a Hall as the living quarters (now the Hotel Dining Room and Templar Suite), and an adjoining Chapel for their devotions.

The Knights Templar


An Order was started after the first Crusade in 1118 by nine French Knights called 'The Poor Fellow Soldiers of Jesus Christ'. They were given quarters in part of the Al Aqsa Mosque on the old Jewish Temple Mound, which saw the phrase 'Of The Temple' added to their name. The long name proved a mouthful, which led to the Order becoming known as 'The Templars'.


The members retained their warrior Knight status whilst adopting traditional monastic vows of poverty, chastity and obedience. Their poverty is shown on their seals by two Knights riding on one horse.


The aim of the Knights was to protect pilgrims on their way to Jerusalem and to be the garrison army of the four new Christian Kingdoms established after the first Crusade. They wore a white mantle, with a red cross added in 1166.


Their patroness was the Virgin Mary and the Head of their Order was termed the Grand Master.
