Español: La Orden de Calatrava es una orden militar y religiosa fundada en el Reino de Castilla en el año 1158 por el abad Raimundo de Fitero, con el objetivo inicial de proteger la villa de Calatrava la Vieja, ubicada cerca de la actual Ciudad Real. Pertenece al grupo de las órdenes cistercienses y, en la actualidad, únicamente tiene carácter honorífico y nobiliario.
English: The Order of Calatrava (Spanish: Orden de Calatrava Portuguese: Ordem de Calatrava) was the first military order founded in Castile, but the second to receive papal approval. The papal bull confirming the Order of Calatrava as a Militia was given by Pope Alexander III on September 26, 1164. Most of the political and military power of the order dissipated by the end of the 15th century, but the last dissolution of the order's property did not occur until 1838.
