Phantom Time Hypothesis
This historical conspiracy theory was first published in 1991 and it basically states that 297 years of our history didn’t exist. Heribert Illig, the author of this conspiracy, believes that the events from 614 to 911 have been faked, that includes the entire Carolingian period and the figure of Charlemagne. According to Illig, one of the main reasons we shouldn’t believe these 297 years actually took place is the scarcity of archeological evidence from that period of time. Although there are many people who believe this theory, (again, no distinct reason why anyone would be interested in adding those years), historians rejected Illig’s proposals.
