People usually believe commonly accepted opinions about various historical events. However, there is a chance that some of these general beliefs were imposed on us by certain people or political fractions for their own profit. Let us search for some alternative theories of famous historical events – they might not be true and they are not officially recognized, yet we always should have an alternative view.

Alternative Theories Concerning The Sinking Of Titanic

Alternative theories concerning the sinking of Titanic
According to the first alternative theory version the sunken ship was not the Titanic, but an identical ship called Olympic. The Olympic was constructed a year before Titanic and was damaged by accident with no insurance available to cover the costs. In order to pay for the damages, the company White Star Line decided to secretly switch the vessels before the sailing. In other words, they wanted to send the old and damaged Olympic instead of the new Titanic, and then fake a crash in the sea, after which evacuate the passengers to the nearest ships, and thus get the insurance money.  Yet, the Olympic sank very quickly, and the nearest ships were far away save the passengers.

According to the second alternative theory, there was a fire on Titanic prior to its departure and there are old photographs of the ship on its departure day to prove that. The coal bunker sides had big dark spots indicating for an internal fire. The fireman of the ship, John Dilley, confessed in an interview that there was a fire in bunker 6 that lasted for 5 days. This story was suppressed, in order to save the reputation of the company. As a result of the fire, the outer hull of the ship could not stand the hit by the iceberg.

According to another alternative version a famous Ancient Egyptian artifact from the British Museum - the Unlucky Mummy (believed to be a priestess of Amen-Ra) was part of the luggage of Lord Canterville on the Titanic. That artifact is famous for bringing misfortune to all its owners as the inside wall of the mummy-board read: "Leave the oblivion, and conquer those on your way with one sharp look."

Alternative Egyptian Discoveries

Alternative Egyptian discoveries
Scientists are still not sure about the year of the Egyptian pyramids construction. They all agree that these are the world’s oldest monumental structures, yet the date difference goes from several centuries to 1,000 years. If we have a look at the Great Sphinx of Giza for an example, the Sphinx was believed to have been built during the reign of Pharaoh Khafre in 25 BC. Yet in 1857, the Stele of Revealing was discovered in Giza and the text read that Pharaoh Khafre commanded to just restore the Great Sphinx, but not build a new one. This means that the Great Sphinx might be even older than we believed.

Besides that, the body of the Sphinx has deep furrows that were proved to be the remains of water erosion. Yet, the Egyptian weather had not been rainy for at least 8 000 years. Thus, is the Sphinx  more than 8,000 years old?

The City Of Troy And The Fortune Hunting

The city of Troy and the fortune hunting

People today believe that the city of Troy was located on the Turkish hill Hisarlik to be later discovered by the archaeologist Heinrich Schliemann. The colleagues of Schliemann however doubted his discovery as they considered him to be a fortune hunter.

They even came up with a theory that Schliemann self-promoted his own discovery as he found similar ancient ruins and buried a cache of gold. Even the institutions and the museums doubted significantly the authenticity of the Priam’s Treasure that he found there.

Did USA Itself Provoke The Pearl Harbor Attack?

Did USA itself provoke the Pearl Harbor attack?
According to a popular conspiracy theory, Franklin D. Roosevelt understood that the only way to influence the world history was to interfere in the World War II. Yet the American society strongly held opinions against that. According to this theory Roosevelt provoked the Japan attack by offering the Hull note, which as an ultimatum document. Roosevelt was aware of the planned Japanese attack as the Japanese battle craft carriers left the base. However, for a positive outcome of the war, he needed this move.

The Mixing Of The Ancient Kingdom Chronology

The mixing of the Ancient Kingdom chronology
The important and monumental work The Chronology of Ancient Kingdoms Amended was mixed up and Isaac Newton was the first to realize that. To start, there was a huge disambiguation about the number of the Egyptian Pharaohs. Besides that, Jean-François Champollion, who is considered to be a founding figure in the Egyptology sphere, found the name of the Pharaoh Shoshenq I in the Bible and thus marked the beginning of the Ancient Egypt chronology, yet that started 3 centuries of history that did not even refer to Egypt.

The historians were also confused by the Old Russian State of Kiev. During the 6th century, Kiev was the first Slavic settlement and three centuries later it turned into a big capital. But what did actually happen? It is believed that Nestor the Chronicler, the author of the earliest East Slavic chronicle, was told to write a book on orders from Vladimir II Monomakh and thus to estimate the greatness of the city before its economic decline.

Another historical phantom is the Carolingian dynasty. Some historians believe that Charles the Great, the first recognized Emperor, was just a fictional character yet nothing was found by the archeologists that proved the existence of that dynasty.

Michael Jackson Alive And Living In Bahrain?

Michael Jackson alive and living in Bahrain?
Many people do not like the idea that the King of Pop is long gone and some of them claim that his death provoked many questions. They find the very last photograph taken of Michael Jackson to be fake. In addition, the person who called 911 was very calm and did not even mention Jackson’s name.

To add to all that, the security camera recordings disappeared along with the doctor of the pop star, as the news was announced.


Just several days before the death news, Michael Jackson looked physically well. On the day of the funeral, his coffin was closed and the family members were not looking as crying for real.

To make things even more suspicious, the diary of the pop star was found where he wrote about faking his death.


Why Bahrein? Well, several years before his death, Jackson enjoyed spending a lot of time in Bahrain and even considered moving to that country.

To make things even more suspicious, in the summer of 2016, Paris Jackson posted a photo where people recognized her father was in the back seat of the car. So, who knows…
