The Knights Templar became the wealthiest, most powerful – and most secretive – of the military orders that flourished in the crusading era. But, their wealth and influence came crashing down in a bloody and humiliating fall. Here broadcaster and bestselling author of The Plantagenets, Dan Jones, will tell their remarkable story.

Dan Jones is a broadcaster, journalist and award-winning historian of the Middle Ages. He is the bestselling author of Summer of Blood, The Plantagenets, The Hollow Crown, Magna Carta and Realm Divided. He lives in London.

‘Jones tells their (the Templars) story with energy and verve’
