Military Order of Aviz, previously to 1910 Royal Military Order of
Aviz (Portuguese: Ordem Real Militar de Avis), previously to 1789
Order of Saint Benedict of Aviz (Portuguese: Ordem de S o Bento de
Aviz), previously Knights of St. Benedict of Aviz or Friars of
Santa Maria of vora, is a Portuguese Order of Chivalry. They gave
their name and arms to the Aviz Dynasty that ruled Portugal between
1385 and 1580. The order, as a monastic military order, was founded
in emulation of such military orders as the Knights Templar, which
existed in Portugal as early as 1128, and received a grant from
Teresa of Le n in the year of the Council of Troyes, which
confirmed their early statutes. A native order of this kind sprang
up in Portugal about 1146.
