Order of Monfrag e or Monfrag (Spanish: Orden de Monfrag e or
Monfrag) was a Spanish military order founded at the castle of
Monfrag e near Plasencia on the Tagus in 1196. The order was
founded by the knights of the Order of Mountjoy who dissented from
a merger with the Knights Templar. The order never prospered and on
23 May 1221, by order of Ferdinand III of Castile, it was merged
into the Order of Calatrava. In the twelfth century Monfrag e was
the centre of a Mountjoy commandary before it became the
headquarters of its own order. The earliest reference to the
commandary is in an economic transaction involving the commander,
Gonzalo Padilla, and his fellow brothers (freyes, freires) of the
Order. As early as 1186 the Order had tried to amalgamate with the
Templars but failed. The remaining decade of its existence was
spent in a state of utter collapse.
