Long Description:

Anton Flavian de Ripa was the 35th Grand Master of the Knights Hospitaller from 1421 until his death in Rhodes in 1437.

"Of Catalan origin, it seems that he belonged to a family of knights settled in the region of Segarra.

Unlike most grandmasters, he does not receive a Western charge at the beginning of his career and does not have a Western priory before his election. He served in Rhodes from 1387, but seems to exercise significant responsibility there from 1409, when he is lieutenant commander of Kos and captain of the castle Saint-Pierre.

On June 30, 1411, he became bailiff of the Spanish language and Drapier; from about May 24, 1419, he served as lieutenant ad interim in Rhodes for the great master Philibert de Naillac, gone to the West. He received his first command in May 1420, then in October the prestigious command of Cyprus. He was elected grand master the following year."
