Krak de Chevaliers-Greates of all Crusader Castles
De Chevaliers (Fortress of the Knights), was the main fortress and headquarters to the religious military order of the Knights
Located in Modern day Syria, the castle was virtually impregnable. The thick walls, excellent design and
location created a near perfect Medieval castle.
From the 11
to the 17
centuries, the Knights
were a warrior religious order tasked with defending Christianity, the Holy Lands and the poor & sick.
