07. The Knights Templar
It was basically a religious military group formed in the 12th century. It was a vow of nine knights to protect pilgrims in the Holy land. With the passage of time, the size of the society grew further as more knights joined them. The society soon started prospering in terms of wealth, fame and power. To become a member of this society, one must be Christian Master Mason. This is a well-known fact that many masons, anti-masons as well as non-masons organizations had their routes in The Knights Templar. The members of The Knights Templar were tortured and killed and no evidence was found that they had the Arc of the Covenant or other Holy Relics.
