Knights Templar: 12th Century Almourol Castle Legend…

Early in the 12th century, the Lord of Almorolan was an Arab emir.  The emir’s daughter fell in love with a Christian knight.  She began sneaking him into the castle each and every knight, so they could spend time together.

The knight was just using the girl, and he opened the castle gates, so his fellow knights could gain access, without spilling blood, and capture the Castle.

Almorolan, and his heart-broken daughter embraced each other, and threw themselves from the castle’s parapets into the river below.
