The Knights Templar 

The Knights Templar was a clerical order of knights that existed from 1118 to 1312. Its members are known as Templars, Knights Templar or Knights Templar. Its full name was Poor Knighthood of Christ and Solomon's Temple at Jerusalem (Latin: Pauperes commilitones Christi templique Salomonici Hierosolymitanis).

In addition to the three monastic vows, the members of the ecclesiastical orders of knighthood had to take an oath to take part in the fight against the infidels and pagans. They originated in Palestine in the early 12th century, with the original task of caring for needy and sick pilgrims and securing the travel routes of the faithful. The oldest orders of the Knights Templar and the Knights of St John gathered mainly French, Burgundian, Norman and English nobles; Germans gathered in the Teutonic Order (Fratres domus sanctae Mariae Theutonicorum), which adopted the rules of the Knights Templar. While the Teutonic Order opened up new fields of activity after the fall of the Crusader states, for example in the Baltic States, the Order of the Knights Templar perished at the beginning of the 14th century in disputes with France and the papacy.

The origin of the motif is unknown. The depiction of two knights on one horse can be seen as a symbol of brotherhood, but was interpreted by opponents of the Templar Order as an indication of hidden homosexual practices. An interpretation in the sense of a double knighthood as warrior and monk is also quite plausible.
