The Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon' (Latin: Pauperes commilitones Christi Templique Salomonici), commonly known as the Knights Templar, the Order of Solomon's Temple (French: Ordre du Temple or Templiers) or simply as Templars, were among the most wealthy and powerful of the Western Christian military orders[4] and were prominent actors in Christian finance. The organization existed for nearly two centuries during the Middle Ages.

Not to be confused with the (slightly older, and still active) Knights of Malta.
