KNIGHTS TEMPLAR -- Crusader Coins 11th - 12th century

Found in Templar graves in various locations.

Hetoum II reigned three times. After a few difficult years of losses to the Mamluks, he ended his first reign by abdicating in favor of his brother Thoros III and entering a monastery. Two years later Thoros III asked Hetoum to take the throne again. While Hetoum was in Constantinople, his brother Smpad, ended his second reign by usurping the throne, and blinding and imprisoning him upon his return. Constantine, another brother, who had aided Smpad, then usurped the throne and freed Hetoum. Regaining his sight, Hetoum took the throne a third time. After more disasterous losses to the Mamluks, Hetoum abdicated his third reign, passing the crown to Thoros's teenaged son, Leo III, and retiring to a monastery.
