Prieuré de Sion
1090, or according to some sources 1099, as Ordre de Sion. Probably the order of religious responsible for the abbey on Mount Sion, Jerusalem (Israel), which was established in 1099. The Order was mentioned in charters of 1152 and 1178, as being conferred holdings of land in France, Spain, the Italian peninsula and Sicily as well as the Holy Land. The Prieuré is cited in documents of the 12th to the 17th centuries. No further documentary evidence until registered in accordance with French law, 1956, but may have been associated with the French Alpha Galates during World War II.
