Product information "Hospitaller Cloak"
The Knights Hospitaller (also known as the Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order
of St. John of Jerusalem of Rhodes and of Malta, Order of St. John, Knights of
Malta, and Chevaliers of Malta; French: Ordre des Hospitaliers, Maltese: Ordni
ta’ San Ġwann) is a Christian organization that began as an Amalfitan hospital
founded in Jerusalem in approximately 1080 to provide care for poor, sick or
injured pilgrims to the Holy Land. After the Western Christian reconquest of
Jerusalem in 1099 during the First Crusade, it became a religious/military
order under its own charter, and was charged with the care and defence of
the Holy Land. Following the conquest of the Holy Land by Islamic forces,
the Order operated from Rhodes, over which it was sovereign, and later
from Malta where it administered a vassal state under the Spanish viceroy
of Sicily. Today it is known as the Maltese Order.
Crusaders wore cloaks over their armour, often in combination with the
matching surcoat (tabard). Usually it was emblazoned with the cross
denoting the knight fighting for the liberation of Jerusalem.
The Ulfberth cloaks are very sturdy and wide. We have not skimped on material.
The whole cloak has a lining.
