Geoffroy de Charny (c. 1300 – 19 September 1356) was a French knight and member of the Templar Order, who was in possession of the Shroud of Eden, until it was stolen from him by members of the Italian Brotherhood of Assassins. The Assassins replaced the artifact with a forgery, which eventually became known as the Shroud of Turin. Geoffroy was killed at the Battle of Poitiers in 1356.[1]
