Order of the Annunciation
The order was intended to fight the infidels and counted, next to noble knights and spiritual knights, ministering brothers. The motto of the order was In hoc signo vincam ("By this sign, I will conquer", sign meaning the cross of the Order).
The order fell quickly into oblivion after the death of its founder.
