Knights Templar had been in the planning since early November of 2016 when Odin messaged Thalmor about the idea. The alliance was founded on February 1st, right in the middle of the SK-TEst War. In exchange for peace, KT members agreed to leave TEst and go to Pantheon's applicants.
Upon being founded, Knights Templar gradually grew to over 100 active members by May 5th. During that time, it remained neutral during The Trail of Tiers. KT's lower tier did experience some combat during the Animal Control Crusade, however.
Thalmor resigned as Grand Master on November 17, 2017, handing down the title to Theodosius (formerly known as Apollo). This was the first time in KT's history that the head leadership position had changed.
After being on the winning side of some minor wars (Oblivion-Zeon War and Kastor's Karma War), the Knights Templar had their first real test in the Ayyslamic Crusade. As the only alliance hit in The Inquisition's initial blitz, KT's entire mid tier had their military wiped and was in result pinned down for the remainder of the war. It fought back using pirate tactics, while the upper tier welcomed the United Purple Nations' declaration of war to get some action as well. At the end of the war, KT still managed to boast a slightly positive net damage in the war stats.
After the Ayyslamic Crusade, Knights Templar decided to pursue a new political path and altered their foreign policy, aligning themselves with The Golden Horde.
Knights Templar participated in the longest Orbis conflict in its history, Dance Dance Revolution, more commonly known as 69 Day War. After initially being blitzed along with their allies in TGH, Knights Templar have mostly fought with guerrilla tactics for the entirety of the war, which eventually proved successful, causing KT/TGH to partially close the damage gap with their enemies.
Theodosius retired as Grand Master on August 18th, 2018, after serving 9 months at the helm of the alliance, conveniently matching his predecessors time in office. Previously serving as Grand Chancellor, Keegoz was chosen as his successor.
