Commanders of knights, houses and farms (Casals) These Templars fell under the Commanders of Lands and were responsible for the day to day operations of the various estates under their care. Generally speaking, they were knights, but if no knight resided in the region, the position could go to a sergeant. If the Commander was a knight he was permitted four horses, but if a sergeant he was allowed only two.
