Manorialism, the organisation of peasants into villages that owed rent and labour services to the nobles, and feudalism, the political structure whereby knights and lower-status nobles owed military service to their overlords in return for the right to rent from lands and manors, were two of the ways society was organised in the High Middle Ages.- Middle Ages
The first military orders of knighthood were the Knights of the Holy Sepulchre and the Knights Hospitaller, both founded shortly after the First Crusade of 1099, followed by the Order of Saint Lazarus (1100), Knights Templars (1118) and the Teutonic Knights (1190).- Knight
Another outgrowth of the crusades was the foundation of a new type of monastic order, the military orders of the Templars and Hospitallers, which fused monastic life with military service.- Middle Ages

The Order of Brothers of the German House of Saint Mary in Jerusalem (official names: Ordo domus Sanctae Mariae Theutonicorum Hierosolymitanorum; L'Ordine dei Fratelli della Casa Tedesca di Santa Maria a Gerusalemme; Orden de Hermanos de la Casa Alemana de Santa María en Jerusalén; Ordre des Frères de la Maison allemande de Sainte Marie à Jérusalem; Orden der Brüder vom Deutschen Haus der Heiligen Maria in Jerusalem; Orde van de Broeders van het Duitse Huis van Sint-Maria in Jeruzalem; Zakon Szpitala Najświętszej Marii Panny Domu Niemieckiego w Jerozolimie), commonly known as the Teutonic Order (German: Deutscher Orden, Deutschherrenorden or Deutschritterorden), is a Catholic religious order founded as a military order c. 1190 in Acre, Kingdom of Jerusalem.
Its members have commonly been known as the Teutonic Knights, having a small voluntary and mercenary military membership, serving as a crusading military order for the protection of Christians in the Holy Land and the Baltics during the Middle Ages.
Purely religious since 1810, the Teutonic Order still confers limited honorary knighthoods.
However, based on the model of the Knights Templar, it was transformed into a military order in 1198 and the head of the order became known as the Grand Master (magister hospitalis).
