The Knights of the Empire Germanica Inc (KEG) strive to portray the Knights and Germanic people of the 'Order of the House of St. Mary in Jerusalem', commonly referred to as the Teutonic Order. Members actively research and portray a key time period within the history of the Teutonic Order, specifically within the late years of the Teutonic Order from 1380, when the Empire's lands included Germany, Austria, Poland, Prussia, Lithuania, Italy & north to the Gulf of Finland, until their crushing defeat at Tannenberg in 1410. Group Members engage in living history displays, depictions and battle re-enactments of the Teutonic Order utilising arms, armour, textiles and furnishings, all carefully crafted as historically accurate as possible within the constraints of modern society. The Baltic and Eastern European Ritterorden encourages within it's membership, and the wider community, the concept of chivalry and the values of honour and loyalty whilst endeavouring to raise each person's self-esteem, confidence and acceptance in a welcoming, inclusive and likeminded community. Above all, being a member of KEG is about enjoying yourself!
