In 1986, German historian Heribert Illig began growing the Phantom Time Hypothesis. Illig claims that he has archaeological proof that may show that the years AD 614 – 911 don’t truly exist and the Gregorian calendar is nothing however a lie.

According to Illig, the three world rulers, the Holy Roman Emperor Otto III, Pope Sylvester II, and the Byzantine Emperor Constantine VII entered right into a conspiracy to vary the Anno Domini relationship system retrospectively, in order that it positioned them at the particular year of AD 1000, and to rewrite historical past to legitimize Otto’s declare to the Holy Roman Empire.

Heribert Illig believed that this was achieved by means of the alteration, misrepresentation, and forgery of documentary and bodily proof.

Could Illig’s principle be true? Could we be living in the 18th Century?
