Flag of the Knights of Germania by ThanyTony Flag of the Knights of Germania by ThanyTony

The Knights of Germania were created in 1190 by the Holy Karlsland Empire as a way to carry on with the Western Roman Empire's tradition of having an elite force of warriors and witches to deal with threats to the Empire.

The moment to prove their worth came in the year of 1240 when the Great Mongolian Empire came to invade Europe and they were tasked with defending the land of Poland, Grandmaster of the order at the moment, Gehard von Malberg led the knights against the Mongols in their first incursion, while they were able to halt the advance of the Mongols, the order received a massive blow and the daughter of the Grandmaster and a Karlslander witch, Mila was captured by the Mongols.

Mila lived with the Mongols for a year where she learned their ways and managed to reach a deeper connection with her familiar becoming one of the most powerful European witches in recorded history, her healing powers became so strong she was able to grow limbs back. She was released after a year and was appointed grandmaster of the order replacing her father and tasked to march against the Mongols again which she reluctantly did so.
The battle however was interrupted when a group of Rästel (Neuroi) attacked the city of Opole; both armies agreed to cease fire and fought the Rästel in the Battle of Opole, defeating the invading force.

Mila convinced the Mongol commander, Subotai to unite against the Rästel and put an end to this threat, and so The Germania Knights united their forces with the Mongol Empire and together they battled and defeated the Rästel in the Battle of Legnica, the first recorded battle in history where two nations united against the Neuroi.

After this the Germania Knights made a pact with the Mongols managing to make them return to Asia saving Europa, this actions made them gain prestige with the Emperor and they were awarded the state of Prussia where Mila took the order and settled there.

This state would eventually become the Kingdom of Prussia which was involved in various conflicts through the modern era, one of their most important ones was during the seven years war where they were able to obtain the "Viceroyalty of Rio de la Plata" from Hispania, a colony in Liberion that they would eventually grant independance as "The Republic of Neue Karlsland", an action that helped the Kingdom of Prussia gain power and resources in Europa.

Eventually King Wilhem I
would begin a crusade to unite all the Germanic nations after the fall of the Holy Empire of Karlsland and after a war with Ostmark and with Gallia and with the help of his Prime Minister, Otto von Bismarck, he was able to unite all the nations and created the nation that exists today, The Karlsland Empire.

The order of the Knights of Germania still exist today and Karlsland witches who become heroes and perform valiant and incredible actions for the land are knighted into the order, the greatest honor a witch can receive in the Karlsland Empire.
