The fields were named Theresienwiese (“Theresa’s meadow”) in honor of the Crown Princess.

galagraphia:

Undress a templar.
I believe it’s from an Osprey book about Knights Templar. My husband has a localised edition.

That’s from Osprey’s “Knight Templar 1120-1312” 
These are two plates combined ( at least at the copy I have)
The half at the left is titled “Knight Templar of around 1170”
Here’s the info about it:

The half at right is “The equipment carried by Templars, according to the Order’s statutes recorded in 1165
Here more details about it:
