Knights Templar Medieval Leather Bracers. The Knights Templar is known throughout Christendom and revered as heroes. Templar knights, in their distinctive white mantles with a red cross, were among the most skilled fighting units of the Crusades. This large organization of devout Christians was also charged with a mission: to protect European travelers visiting sites in the Holy Land while also carrying out brave military operations. They also set up a prosperous network of banks and gained enormous financial influence. Their banking system allowed religious pilgrims to deposit assets in their home countries and withdraw funds in the Holy Land. Out of all Medieval Knights they are still the most recognizable military unit. These bracers are a perfect addition to any Templar costume.

Each bracer comes with laces to adjust them to size. Total Length Flat: 10 Inches. Total Width Flat: 10.38 Inches.
