Ordine Militare ed Ospedaliero
di S. Giovanni d'Acri e S. Tommaso


The Ordine Militare ed Ospedaliero di S. Giovanni d'Acri e S. Tommaso (Military and Hospital Order of St John of Acra and St Thomas) claims to have come out of the Order of St John of Jerusalem 12th January 1205, and is alleged to have been given a charter by Latin Emperor of Costantinople Baldovino I, 18th March 1205. There is then a claimed transfer over the years ending up with a decree by the King of Italy Vittorio Emanuele III, 18th January 1944. The Order seems to be in the gift of the Amoroso dynasty!
