Chevalier and Sergeant
The Templar ranks were:
- Knights (Chevaliers) were always men of 'noble' birth. Templar Knights were
equipped as heavy cavalry, with three or four horses and one or two
squires. Squires were generally not
members of the Order but were instead outsiders who were usually hired for a set
period of time. The knights wore the famous white mantles emblazoned with a red cross.
- Sergeants were from non-noble families. They brought vital skills and trades such as blacksmithing and building, and they administered many of the Order's European properties. In the Crusader States, they fought alongside the knights as light cavalry with a single horse. They wore black or brown.
- Chaplains were ordained members who were responsible for the Templars' spiritual needs. They were often drawn from the Templars own knightly ranks.
All ranks were referred to as "Brothers".
