I just think it's a publicity stunt. While no expert,I think many of the Knights Templar went and joined other orders of knights, or may have changed their name,to something else,in order to survive. The Teutonic Knights still exist, but strictly as a religious order in the Catholic church of men and women invovled in charity work in Germany and Austria. Think these guys read Dan Brown's book once to often.
