What do you know about the Knights Templar

I'm writing a research paper for a college class and I'm just curious as to how many people know anything about the Knights Templar and what they think happened to them.
Have you ever heard of the the Knights Templar? Or the "Poor Knights of Christ"/"Order of the Temple of Solomon"/etc. ?
Yes
No (please leave the rest blank)
I've heard of them but I don't know a lot about them.
I'm a medieval scholar, of course I've heard of them!
For those of you who know they were put on trial for heresy, do you believe they were innocent or guilty?
Innocent
Guilty
Mostly innocent, but some bad ones condemned them all.
Mostly guilty, but there were some good ones.
Guilty in the upper levels, most knights were innocent.
Do you believe the Knights Templar (not necessarily pertaining to Freemasonry) still exist in some form today?
Yes
No
Yes, they became Freemasonry
Yes, they became a distinct part of Freemasonry
Yes, but I'm not sure what they are now
No, but some groups claim to be descendants of the knights
