  • The Skulls Of The "List Of 12" Are In A French Church To This Day on Random Interesting Theories Historians Have Proposed About Knights Templar

    (#8) The Skulls Of The "List Of 12" Are In A French Church To This Day

    Historians debate how many Knights Templar were able to escape the persecution of King Philip, though it's undisputed that at least a few were able to make it out alive. But one document called "The List of 12" that was uncovered in the 1800s by researcher Heinrich Finke specifically lists 12 knights who managed to escape. 

    Many speculate they and possibly others who survived persecution fled to the French-controlled mountains to an area known as Luz. The ghost of du Molay allegedly haunts the church which stands to this day near the border of Spain and France. It's also rumored the skulls of the 12 Order survivors are buried in the church, though historians highly speculate the validity of that. 

  • The Friday The 13th Superstition Began With The Knights Templar on Random Interesting Theories Historians Have Proposed About Knights Templar

    (#7) The Friday The 13th Superstition Began With The Knights Templar

    The Knights Templar were arrested on Friday, October 13, 1307 on the orders of French King Philip IV. At the time, Philip owed the knights a substantial amount of of money. Instead of paying up he accused them of being heretics and devil worship - something that would stick with the Knights Templar throughout history - and had them arrested. They were subsequently burned at the stake. 

    While many point to Friday the 13th's origin as lore from the Bible, some say the fear of the day actually is derived from the knights's arrests

  • They Found America Before Columbus on Random Interesting Theories Historians Have Proposed About Knights Templar

    (#4) They Found America Before Columbus

    As the story goes: In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue. But was he the first to officially discover America? Some believe the Knights Templar traveled to North America at least 100 years before Columbus made his infamous journey. 

    Researchers Tim Wallace-Murphy and Marilyn Hopkins wrote a book about the subject titled Templars In America: From the Crusades to the New World. They believe Henry Sinclair (sometimes referred to as St. Clair), Lord of Roslin and member of the Order, set sail to America in 1396 and left proof of their visit off the Atlantic coast of both the United States and Canada. Sinclair is said to have assimilated into a native tribe in Canada where he later died. 

  • Their Treasure Is Buried On Oak Island on Random Interesting Theories Historians Have Proposed About Knights Templar

    (#6) Their Treasure Is Buried On Oak Island

    When Sinclair allegedly came over from Europe in the late 1300s, he brought with him a trove of treasure. It's said he buried it on Oak Island, an island off the coast of Nova Scotia. According to legend, on the day King Philip indicted the Knights Templar, the Order loaded up their various treasures from their headquarters in Paris and loaded it onto boats. From there, the boats were sent to Scotland and eventually settled with Sinclair. He hid the treasure in Rosslyn Chapel.

    In an attempt to start a new, utopian Order, he and the treasure - along with the Zeno brothers of Venice and handful of others - sailed to modern day Canada. The new Order did not survive, and instead of heading back to Europe they buried the treasure on Oak Island. The treasure is protected by a "Money Pit" full of complicated traps. 

    Since the 19th century, treasure hunters have come to the island in hopes of finding the Order's bounty - many of whom died. In 2006, brothers Michigan natives Rick and Marty Lagina purchased a major stock in the island and got the go ahead to start excavating it. They've since starred in a TV show on The History Channel about their attempts to locate the treasure called The Curse of Oak Island

    (#10) They Predicted And Possibly Caused 9/11

    Conspiracy theories about the terrorist attacks on 9/11 are a dime a dozen, so it should come as no shock many believe the Knights Templar had some sort of involvement.

  • They (Somewhat) Control The US Government on Random Interesting Theories Historians Have Proposed About Knights Templar

    (#9) They (Somewhat) Control The US Government

    Many believe that after the Order officially disbanded in the 12th Century, they formed the Freemasons. Conspiracy theories surrounding the Freemasons are vast and include everything from controlling the media, elections, and universities to the popularity of celebrities

    So how does this connect to the Knights Templar exactly? Well, according to conspiracy theorists the Illuminati, Freemasons, Knights Templar, and Jews are working together to establish a New World Order deeply rooted in the occult that threatens Christianity worldwide. This will be done through population control, non-religious government controls, and mind control through mass media. If this seems crazy that's because it is. Modern New World Order believers include televangelists, neo-nazis, and alt-right groups who support white supremacy.
