The Knights of Mobile was formed in April 1997, founded by "a small group of revelers who brought almost 150 collective years of Mardi Gras experience to the table with the desire to return to the smaller society and ball philosophy," according to the KOM.
The group "is based on the theme of the royal order of King George III (also referred to in history as the Mad King), who ruled over Great Britain from 1760-1820."

This year's parade was February 25, between the Floral Parade and the Mobile Mystical Ladies, all of which started at noon.
The theme for the Knights of Mobile was 20th Anniversary: A Knight's Journey. The parade included seven rented floats. The Queen was Melissa Ann Moore, who was the sixth KOM Queen in 2003.
