 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: The Military Orders
Orders of knighthood lacking this official recognition should be expunged from history, even though they figure in the pages of all the old historians of the military orders.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Military Order of Calatrava
It was this deficiency that the military orders, and first of all the Knights Templars, intended to supply by fulfilling their vow of perpetual war against the Moslem.
Moreover, the knights of the order were virtually secularized: Pope Paul III commuted their vow of celibacy to one of conjugal fidelity (1540).
As members of the order were allowed to found families, and were authorized by Julius III (1551) to make free use of their personal property, the vow of poverty also passed into virtual desuetude.

 The Military Ordert of Alcantara   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
The precursor of the Order of Alcántara was a small religious-military fraternity formed, in either 1156 or 1176, by two brothers from Salamanca, Suero and Gómez Fernández.
Unfortunately, like the other military orders, the knights of Alcántara were inevitably drawn into the civil wars between the Kings of Aragón, Castille, León and Navarre, despite the fact that they were in breach of their vows only to take up arms against the infidel.
In 1411 the knights obtained permission from the anti-pope Benedict XIII to adopt an identical badge to that of the Order of Caltrava but in dark green; this has remained the badge of the Order; the cross may be suspended from a ribbon or sewn on the left breast.

 The Military Order of Calatrava   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
The Order had some sixteen priories and fifty-six commanderies and from 1540 their vows were modified to parallel those of the other Orders, permitting them to marry, while in 1652 a fourth vow was added to defend and sustain the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception (as in Santiago).
The Order's head was the Grand Commander, his deputy the Grand Commander of Alcañices (or of Aragón), along with the Clavero, or keeper of the keys, the Obrero, Alférez (Standard-Bearer) and Commander of Almodovar.
The badge of the Order is a red Greek cross with the letter M (for Mary) in ornate script as fleurs de lys, making the four arms; it is either worn sewn on the left breast or is represented as a gold red enameled cross hung from a red ribbon around the neck.

 The Military Order of Montesa   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
On 22 July 1319 the Master of Calatrava was given the right to visit the Order and regulate disputes, as the first knights to form the new Order had been a group of volunteers from the Order of Calatrava.
The first Master was Guillermo d'Eril and the Order had a total of fifteen Masters, whose military importance was insufficient to bring them into conflict with the Crown and who were not perceived as the same kind of threat as those of the other three Orders.
Requirements for admission are less stringent that in the other four Orders, as only the paternal and maternal of the four grandparents' (all of whom must be legitimate and not descended from non-Christians) families must be noble.

 The Military Order of Santiago   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Between 1164 and 1170 the thirteen founder knights [2] had attached themselves to the order of regular canons of the monastery of Sant'Eloi at Lugo, on the Mino in Galicia, promising to give them military protection and adopting their rule of Saint Augustine.
The knights brought a considerable endowment to the new combined Order, [3] and the monks soon assented to sharing their common revenues and agreed to provide hospital services to the knights, their serving brothers and sick pilgrims.
Gifts to the Orders from each of Spain's several Monarchies and from individuals meant that their territories were widely scattered and this was particularly true of the heavily endowed Order of Santiago.

The order was reduced to a system of endowments at the disposal of the king, of which he availed to himself to reward his nobles.

 The Military Order of The Crusade

The focus of MOC is to honor and perpetuate the memory of their brave ancestors, their ideals and achievements as well as to support and encourage activities of noble purpose.

It was founded in 1900 to counter and satirize the very pompous Order of the Dragon, which was founded by those who had defeated the very short-lived Boxer uprising in China.
While the original spoof was real enough, the Carabao Order came to epitomize the camaraderie that grows among members of the armed forces who face the dangers and privations of extensive military service far from home.
