Reorganization into a Monastic Order[]

Hugues de Payens, a member of the Order of the Ancients, traveled to the Holy Land in 1104 with eight knights consisting of Godfrey de Saint-Omer, Payen de Montdidier, Archambaud de St. Agnan, André de Montbard, Geoffrey Bison, Rossal, and Gondamer in hopes of gaining the support of the Church and the kingdoms of Western Europe by establishing a monastic and military order from the Order of the Ancients. After establishing the Order of the Knights Templar, de Payens had gradually gained more power and influence in the Order of the Ancients, drawing many members of the Order of the Ancients to pledge loyalty to its new Grand Master and even join the Order. However, many members of the Order of the Ancients refused to pledge loyalty to de Payens, which caused internal conflict within the organization.

Fully Absorbed into the Knights Templar[]

By 1210, the Knights Templar had gained a public presence in the Holy Roman Empire when they were granted a site in Brandenburg by the church and the Margrave Albert II.

Returning Underground[]

After the French Assassins had manipulated King Philip IV of France and Pope Clement V into hunting down and disbanding the Knights Templar, public traces of the Knights Templar throughout Western Europe were targeted on orders of the Vatican. The Templar site of Tempelhof in Berlin was besieged by knights on orders of Margrave Henry I of Brandenburg and had either killed or chased away all Templars present. In order to ensure their order's survival, the Templars gathered and plotted in secret.
