Definición de Teutonic Knights en inglés:

A military and religious order of German knights, priests, and lay brothers, originally enrolled circa 1191 as the Teutonic Knights of St Mary of Jerusalem.

Abolished by Napoleon in 1809, the order was re-established in Vienna as an honorary ecclesiastical institution in 1834 and maintains a titular existence
