About Templar Nation
Until not many years ago we have always heard of the Jewish people (at least until 1947, the year of the establishment of the State of Israel) or the Rom people or other ethnic minorities without a State.
Today, however, there is also talk of the Templar people. In the collective imagination, the Templars are the famous warrior monks who participated in the crusades and who characterized the history of at least two centuries (1118-1314).
In fact, the historically best known members of the Templar people were the famous Knights, but many other people revolved around them.

Historical-Juridical Outline of Templar Nation
In 1118, at the behest of the Cistercian Abbot of Clairvaux, Bernard of Fontaine-lès-Dijon (inspired by the Cistercian Abbot of Citeaux Stephen Harding), the Templar people formed in the form of a lay-monastic order and was called Pauperes Commilitones Christi Templique Salomonis.
From this constitution the Templar people were born. Despite the various historical vicissitudes, the Templars have come to this day, gathered in one Nation, despite being dispersed in different states and with different citizenships.
As we have already explained, in 2018 the Regency Council elected a President and issued a Constitutional Charter creating, through the principle of self-determination of peoples, the Templar Nation.

The Diplomatic Corps
The Diplomatic Corps is the collective body of diplomats accredited to a particular Country or body.
