Thibaud Gaudin (12??-1292) Master of the Order from 1291 to 1292. The origin of Thibaud Gaudin within the Order is rather mysterious. He originated from a noble family of the area of Chartres or Blois, and entered the Order well before 1260. We know this because on that date he was captured during a raid on Tiberius. We also know his great piety earned him the nickname "Monk Gaudin". At the beginning of 1292 he dies of exhaustion following numerous battles.
