Arnold of Torroja

Grand Master of the Knights Templar


The aged Grand Master of the Knights Templar, Arnold of Torroja is described by his supporters as a man blessed with the vitality of youth. This vitality belies the age of the Grand Master as he is broad, strong and still wields a longsword, which many men 20 years his junior would struggle to imitate.

Balding save for long white strands at the back of his head, Arnold favours the new trend of a thick beard, which in his own case is snow white and forked into two, after a vicious blow received in the Battle of Marj Ayyun in 1179.
