    That was the day and date King Philip the Fair of France and Pope Clement V began their suppression of the largely secret society known as the Knights Templar. The Knights had grown too powerful and Philip owed them a great deal of borrowed riches. The Pope worriedly saw them as a threat to Catholicism as well. Much mystery and conspiracy theories about the Templars through-out history and even up until today.

    I am almost certain that it was on the 13th, a Friday, that the Catholic church dispatched assassins to eliminate the Knights Templars, or the Knights of the Crusades. Hundreds, maybe thousands of innocent people died that night, an act so barbarous that the day it occurred remained forever stigmatized as evil. But maybe that's all crap! Who knows, but I like the romance in the lore.
