Templar Mysteries

Could The Templars Have Split?

Should the Templars have successfully fled the Inquisition, it seems unlikely that every member of the order should be able to stay in contact with their fellow brethren. According to specific sources, at their height, the Templar order comprised some 20,000 members, including clergy and lower classes.

Should one lot of Templars have managed to flee with their alleged treasure, or treasures, it seems feasible that those who were not so lucky would resent them.

For that reason, could the various splinter cells have found themselves estranged or even at war?
