Creating of a Knight Templar

creatingkinghttemplarIllustration to the “Romance of Lancelot of the Lake,” published c. 1820-30. One obvious problem, of course, is that to become a Templar one was supposed to be already a knight and of noble descent (there were some irregularities which I will not be discussing here). Thus, it does not make much sense to be knighting someone in order to create a Knight Templar. Nice Romantic piece, nonetheless.
