The Teutonic Order

The complete name of the Teutonic order was "Orden der Ritter des Hospitals Sankt Marien des Deutschen Hauses zu Jerusalem" and its purpose when it was created 1190 was to give medical care to the crusaders in the Holy Land. But only eight years later was it transformed into a military order, which 1211-1225 was active in Transylvania and from 1224 in Prussia where it created a state of its own. The residence of the Order's grand master was however Acre in the Holy Land to 1291, thereafter Venice and first in 1309 was it transferred to Prussia. 1466 Prussia became a Polish vassal state and it was transformed into a secular duchy 1525, which united with Brandenburg 1618. Despite the loss of Prussia 1525 the Teutonic order continued to function and still exist today, although it does not have any military function anymore.
