The Knights Templars became a visible military monk order of this bloodline, which anticipated that when the timing was right, a new Kingdom of David would be proclaimed. The Knights Templars increased in power until they were one of the dominant powers in Europe, but the intervention by the King of France, with the Pope's cooperation upset their time table. The Knights Templars were arrested in France. In order to survive in Spain and Scotland, they took on a low profile. In Germany, they evolved into the Teutonic Knights.
In Spain and Portugal, they became the Order that sent out the Jewish17 captain known as Christoper Columbus. Columbus sailed with the Templar's Order's Red Cross logos on his sails. Well-known pictures of his ships display this. The Rosy Cross- the Red Cross will reappear in other scenarios connected with secret societies. Undercurrents of the occult seem to never cease. Lorenzo de' Medici, who was a distinguished Platonist and a patron of secret societies, and a member of the black nobility, is said by some to have helped Columbus with the connections to sail.1 Columbus is said by several historians to have been from Greece.19 Even if Columbus was of Jewish heritage and from Greece, the records show he was firmly committed to a strong display of Catholicism. Even more plausible than his Jewishness is the strong connection that seems certain between Columbus and secret societies. (Even his signature is a cipher.)
