Mystery of the Phantom Time Theory

According to Heribert Illig, a German writer and historical revisionist, nearly 300 years of time was invented in order to strengthen the emperor’s claim to the throne. Proponents of Phantom Time Theory suggest that the reign of Charlemagne was a made up period, and that the evidence exists to prove we are living in the year 1720. Additionally, the theory suggests Islam’s beginnings were fabricated, including Muhammad, and the period of Viking expansion from about 600 AD (C.E.) never happened.
