The bottom line on the Knights is that the King of France decided he didn’t want to pay back all the money he had borrowed off them. So, with the tacit consent of the Vatican, he butchered a bunch of them in a sudden purge after torturing “confessions” out of them. DeMolay was buned on Fri. 13 which became the basis for the superstition of that day being bad luck. (it certainly was for the KT)

Technically, the writ condemning the Templars was Friday the 13th (10/13/1307), DeMolay was tortured for several years and was finally slow roasted to death on 03/18/1314.

The fraud worked so well for the king o f France, other monarchs across Europe decided they didn’t want to pay back their loans either.............

Exactly. These were powerful men, and the crowned heads of state did not relish being in their debt.

Wasn’t this from around the time that the French King moved the Vatican to France for 100 or so years? The French Kings appointed the popes.
