Greetings from the crossroads of Television drama and Medieval wargaming!

Tomorrow night, Monday April 15th, at 10PM EST, the History Channel will broadcast "EQUAL BEFORE GOD" -- Episode 4 of Season 2 of KnightFall, their show about the downfall of the Knights Templar in early 14th Century France.

This episode features the Leper Knights of Saint Lazarus.

Here's a LINK to the trailer over on the History website:

Despite my lifelong interests in both Medieval history movies & television, I am unaware of any previous film or TV series featuring the Leper Knights. If anyone else can name a movie or show with them in it, I'd be very interested to hear about it.

NOTE: the last pic above comes courtesy of my friend Willie Anderson's "The Anderson Collection" blog, and his post on a unit of custom-made 28mm Saint Lazarus Knights, which can be visited by clicking below:

FULL DISCLOSURE: Though I had nothing to do with the creation or first season of KnightFall, I worked as an Executive Producer on Season 2.

Exec Prod on S2? Cool. I enjoy that show.
