In the beginning of the 14th Century, the Byzantine forces were replaced by the Knights Hospitaller. Under the rule of the newly named “Knights of Rhodes”, the city was rebuilt into a model of the European medieval ideal. Many of the city’‘s famous monuments, including the Palace of the Grand Master, were built during this period.
