The Knights Templar were the wealthiest, most powerful – and most secretive – of the military orders that flourished in the crusading era.

Their story – encompassing as it does the greatest international conflict of the Middle Ages, a network of international finance, a swift rise in wealth and influence followed by a bloody and humiliating fall – has left a comet’s tail of mystery that continues to fascinate and inspire historians, novelists and conspiracy theorists.

A gripping popular history of one of the most storied and misunderstood organizations of the medieval period. Best-selling historian Dan Jones is ideally suited to tell the incredible story of the Templars rise and fall.

A bestselling author, television presenter and award-winning journalist, Dan Jones is the author of popular history books including The Hollow Crown and A Realm Divided.

‘Anyone who has read Jones’s earlier medieval chronicles, The Plantagenets and The Hollow Crown, will know what to expect here: fast-paced narrative history depicted with irresistible verve, bloody battle scenes and moments of laugh-out-loud wit. This is another triumphant tale from a historian who writes as addictively as any page-turning novelist.’ – The Guardian
