Dear friends,
Welcome to our website! The Sovereign Military and
Hospitaller Order of Saint Mary of Jerusalem
Teutonic Dynastic of Swabia
is an ancient Order of
knighthood whose roots go back to the Holy Land at
the time of the Third Crusade, which was organized
by Emperor Friedrich Barbarossa. After the Knights
Templar and the Knights of Saint John, the Teutonic
Order became the third large order of Christian
chivalry. It was founded on November 19, 1190 by the
second son of Emperor Friedrich Barbarossa,
Friedrich, Duke of Swabia (Hohenstauffen), to assist
pilgrims and wounded German knights in the Holy
Land.

Our order, whose headquarters is in Tuscany, Italy,
is present and active in many countries, including the
United States. It is registered in Italy and the United
Kingdom, and recognized by the European
Commission, and the United Nations. Apart from
standing up for the Christian faith, it does charitable
work around the world, and thus continues the
ancient and noble goal of Christian knighthood: To
help those who cannot help themselves.

Please take your time as you browse through our
website or the Order's global website in             or

feel free to contact us. We are only a mouse click
away.

Kind regards,
Jens Bargmann
