I'm new to Lie Groups, but all the examples I found are matrix groups. Can someone show a non-matrix Lie group?

There is the metaplactic group, which is the unique connected double cover of the symplectic group.
Lie groups are smooth manifolds. They may or may not have matrix representations. For example, ordinary Euclidean space with vector addition is a Lie group.
