Sword, Brothers of The

Sword, Brothers Of The,

was an order of knight sword-bearers, founded at the beginning of the 13th century in Livonia; hence the order was sometimes called Livonian Brethren of the Sword. In 1237 the Order of the Teutonic Knights amalgamated with them, and they together gradually subdued all the territories surrounding the Gulf of Riga.
