How about Heribert Illig's 'Phantom Time Conspiracy'?

From Wikipedia:


Quote:The phantom time hypothesis is a historical conspiracy theory asserted by Heribert Illig. First published in 1991, it hypothesizes a conspiracy by the Holy Roman Emperor Otto III, Pope Sylvester II, and possibly the Byzantine Emperor Constantine VII, to fabricate the Anno Domini dating system retroactively, in order to place them at the special year of AD 1000, and to rewrite history to legitimize Otto's claim to the Holy Roman Empire. Illig believed that this was achieved through the alteration, misrepresentation and forgery of documentary and physical evidence. According to this scenario, the entire Carolingian period, including the figure of Charlemagne, is a fabrication, with a "phantom time" of 297 years (AD 614–911) added to the Early Middle Ages.

I got all the rest, but I'm baffled by this one! LOL!
When I was maybe ten years old I managed to make all my classmates believe there's a concert going on at a certain place, and they all went. I think even a teacher went along. Although in fact, there was no concert.
