===================

The Teutonic Order, officially the Order of Brothers of the German House of Saint Mary in Jerusalem (Latin: Ordo domus Sanctæ Mariæ Theutonicorum Hierosolymitanorum, German: Orden der Brüder vom Deutschen Haus St. Mariens in Jerusalem), was a German medieval military order, originally formed to protect Christian pilgrims to the Holy Land and to establish hospitals there. When the Muslims drove the crusaders out of the Holy Land, Teutonic operations militarised and moved to the Baltic. Throughout the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, the Teutonic Order spearheaded the Northern Crusades against the pagan Baltic peoples, waged war against rivalling Poland and Novgorod, and built a state of its own.

The Teutonic Order exists until now as a non-profitable organization or am I wrong?:?

You're not wrong, but this depicts the Knights in their crusading days :D Napoleon turned them into a charity-club, and they still are today :)
