The Order of Saint Anthony was a Bavarian military order founded in 1382 by Duke Albert of Bavaria.[citation needed]

Albert, who had publicly resolved to war against the Turks, re-established this French order to aid in fulfillment of his oath[citation needed].

The knights of this order wore a collar of gold and a hermit's girdle from which hung a crutch and a little bell.
