How to join the The Knights Templars of Albion
The Knights Templars of Albion are an internationally recognised and affiliated Order of the Knights Templars. We are an Order that believes in the Code Of Chivalry, brotherhood, defending the weak and supporting the vulnerable - if this important to you then we hope you have come to the right Order. If you are thinking of joining as a member of The Knights Templars of Albion, please find further information below. The Knights Templars of Albion is open to both male and female members.
Becoming a Knight - What is expected of our Members
Joining an international Knights Templar Order does not automatically mean you are a recognised Knight. To become a Knights Templar (Knight or Dame of the Order) you must first have been invested as a Knight by way of an Investiture ceremony.
Upon joining the Order all members automatically become a Brother/Sister in the Order. Members can then choose if they wish to progress as an Apostle of the Order, or go on further to become a Knight/Dame of the Order. Knights of the Order can then progress to becoming a ranked officer or Ambassador.
We have some members who wish to be just simply be members and others who wish to progress within the Order and become a ranked officer within the Templar Community. The choice is down to each member and why they are looking to join the Order.
Members who join with a previous provable history within the Templar Community or within another Order can have that status honoured with the Knights Templars of Albion upon providing sufficient information. The Knights Templars of Albion we work with and guide you through that path and journey.
Becoming a Knight / Dame of the Knights Templar of Albion
Once a member passes the Apostles program they can progress towards the status of Knight or Dame of the Order.
As a Knight or Dame of the Order you will be recognised as such by the affiliated Orders we work with in the international Templar Community. You can also apply for Citizenship of Templar Nation.
Becoming a Knight means you gain the post nominal of KT (for Knights Templar) and the pre nominal of Sir Lady/Dame.
