Supposedly a king of france and the pope conspired to overthrow the Knights Templar. They made their move on the thirteenth of the month on a Friday. The Order of the Knights Templar was decimated, the members killed or tortured, their wealth confiscated by the king and the pope, and the surviving members went into hiding. Since then Friday the thirteenth is considered unlucky and by extension 13 is unlucky. I don't know when all this happened but it was around the time of the Crusades.
