The Battle of La Forbie, 1244, between the Franks of the Kingdom of Jerusalem and the Khwarezmians fighting for the Ayyubid sultanate. The battle was a crushing loss for the Franks, essentially ending their attempts to regain Jerusalem. The crusading military orders were perhaps the hardest hit, with the knights contributed by the Templars, Hospitaliers and Teutonic Knights almost all falling in the field
