Soon after its establishment in 1119/1120 in the Kingdom of Jerusalem, the Templar order started to flourish and rapidly integrated into Continental politics. It became among the most important and influential institutions of the Franks, and during the 13th century it manages to control important castles, cities, and vast estates in Europe and in almost every region in the Latin East. This session aims to shed light on new research concerning coastal Templar activities in both the Kingdom of Jerusalem and the Adriatic and will therefore attempt to illuminate the relationship between the two regions.
