Covering Arthurian legend, Templars, King John, the Crown Jewels, and Thomas Becket, this exciting new account of what happened to the Holy Grail after the Last Supper reveals where it is now This is the story of a plain silver chalice from the first century AD that now rests in the heart of England. From its momentous beginnings as the cup used by Christ at the Last Supper, and as the vessel used to catch his blood at the Crucifixion, to its unrecognized discovery in the late 19th century, the chalice has passed through the hands of saints, crusaders, kings, queens, Templar knights, and "Guardians." This account revisits the beginnings of the Knights Templar and their rise to incredible wealth and power, it introduces a completely new version of the origins of the Arthurian legends, and it disputes the supposed loss of the Crown Jewels in the Wash and the cause of King John's subsequent death. It reexamines the murder of Thomas Becket and resurrects the forgotten story of a knight who went from disregarded son and child hostage to Regent of England and Guardian of the Grail. The story reveals the reason behind one of England's greatest church mysteries: an early 13th-century clue that took more than 700 years to be deciphered. Most importantly of all, however, it establishes where the Holy Grail is now.
