The Order of the Knights Griffon was first founded by Magnus the Pious shortly after the Great War Against Chaos. The order was originally created from a hundred of the most courageous members of the Knights Panther who battled to liberate Praag. However, unlike the Knights Panther, the order was tasked with guarding the temple of Sigmar in Nuln, the then Imperial capital. As such, they have become regarded as templars.[1a]

Since the ascension of Wilhelm II, the Imperial court has moved from Nuln to Altdorf. Because Magnus created the Knights Griffon with the expressed purpose of guarding “the high temple of Sigmar in the Empire's capital”, the knights have taken his word literally and relocated to the High Temple of Sigmar in Altdorf.[1a]

This is a move that has brought them into close proximity to the Order of the Fiery Heart, with whom the Knights Griffon have developed a rivalry.[1a]

The Knights Griffon wear either lacquered armour of green and gold or bright steel, though many members also wear black as a sign of their association with Nuln. Their horses barding is of the same, or a deep burgundy. They often wear the skins of wild beasts (a legacy of their origins as members of the Knights Panther) and their heraldry depicts a rampant griffon brandishing a sword.[1a]
