Anthem Of The Teutonic Knights

Everyone knows about the Knights Templar and their crucial part in the European resistance to Islamic aggression. But far away to the east another powerful Order of Christian knights played a key role in defeating paganism. The Teutonic Knights also distinguished themselves by fighting to the last man against the Mongol invasion. Even in death, their courageous efficiency was a factor in the Mongol decision to look for easier pickings elsewhere.

 

Their full name was the Order of Brothers of the German House of Saint Mary in Jerusalem. Latin: Ordo domus Sanctæ Mariæ Theutonicorum Hierosolymitanorum, German: Orden der Brüder vom Deutschen Haus der Heiligen Maria in Jerusalem), commonly the Teutonic Order (Deutscher Orden, Deutschherrenorden or Deutschritterorden).

The Teutonic Knights crusader state was established on the edges of the eastern Baltic during the 13th century, in the area since called Prussia. It went on to include large parts of Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and even Russia.

While we have your attention, we would like to remind you of our Emergency Ukraine Appeal

While BILLIONS of Dollars pours into western Ukraine, the beleaguered people in the east have been forgotten and abandoned to starve or freeze to death. WE WILL NOT ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN! In conjunction with our brethren on the ground in the area I am asking you to dig deep and send your immediate financial support (as best you can) to our EMERGENCY UKRAINE WAR APPEAL!
