The Order of Sant Jordi d'Alfama (or better known as The Knights of S. George), were founded in 1201 AD under authority of King Peter II of Aragon. They participated briefly against Moorish incursions during The Reconquista Period of Spanish Territories. They were organized much as were other Military Religious Orders of The Era, with a Grand Master and formation of Knights and Squires. They were identified with The Red Cross of St, George, on a White Mantle. In 1363, whereas The Order was rather small, Pope Benedict XIII merged them into the existing Order of Montesa. They lost their Georgian association hence.
