Noble Friends,

On this date in 1307, on the orders of Philip the Fair, King of France, 
all members of the Knights Templar in France were arrested on charges of 
heresy and other crimes. Philip was deeply in debt to the Templars, and 
saw an opportunity to dump his obligations, and seize the Templar's vast 
wealth and properties. Many Templars confessed to various crimes under 
torture and were burned at the stake:

Yours Aye,

Lord Mungo Napier, That Crazy Scot
