Knights Templar and the Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine and the number 13

Is it just me or does the number thirteen appear suspiciously often in this little research tidbit? Coincidence or not, it was on the “thirteenth” day in 1307 when France’s King Phillip ordered the Knights Templar rounded up and put into chains. In 1872 “thirteen” Freemasons met at New York’s Masonic Hall on East “Thirteenth” Street to create a North American organization of the Ancient Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine.
