The history of the Knights Templars, Temple Church, and the Temple
page 164

To narrate all the exploits of the Templars, and all the inci- GILDEST dents and events connected with the order, would be to write the Λ, „, iijs. history of the Latin kingdom of Palestine, which was preserved and maintained for the period of ninety-nine years after the de parture of Richard Cœur de Lion, solely by the exertions of the Templars and the Hospitallers. No action of importance was ever fought with the infidels, in which the Templars did not take an active and distinguished part, nor was the atabal of the Mus sulmen ever sounded in defiance on the frontier, without the trumpets of the Templars receiving and answering the chal lenge. The Grand Master, Gilbert Horal, was succeeded by Philip „ Pump „ Duil.teSlHS. Dapleesies or De Plesseis* We must now refer to a few events D. lioi. connected with the order of the Temple in England. Brother Geoffrey, who was Master of the Temple at London at the period of the consecration of the Temple Church by the Patriarch of Jerusalem, died shortly after the capture of the holy city by Saladin, and was succeeded by Brother Amaric de St. Maur, who is an attesting witness to the deed executed by king John, A. D. 1203, granting a dowry to his young queen, the beautiful Isabella of Angouleme.t Philip Augustus, king of France, placed a vast sum of gold and silver in the Temple at Paris, and the treasure of John, king of England, was deposited in tbe Temple at London.^ King John, indeed, frequently resided, for weeks together, at the Temple in London, and many of his writs and precepts to his lieutenants, sheriffs, and bailiffs, are dated therefrom.^ The orders for the concentration of the English fleet at Portsmouth, to resist the formidable French invasion * iufrmne, Gloss.
