Many people on the internet claim to have actual knowledge about the existence of a secret society known as the Illuminati. Perhaps you may have already read about some wild conspiracy theories surrounding the mysterious group. The popular belief towards Illuminati has led to the creation of countless of Hollywood films, television series, and best-selling novels that have the Illuminati as their central theme. Of course, these things that we see and hear in movies are only a product of a person’s creative mind. Up to this very day, no one has the possession of an actual proof that the Illuminati does exist.

One of the popular conspiracy theories about the Illuminati is that the secret organization is silently controlling every major events in the globe. As a group with limitless fortune and influence, the Illuminati is said to be capable of shaping up the history of humankind. Its goal is to submit every nation under its rule so that one day, it can create the so-called New World Order. Once this is established, we have no other choice but to follow whatever the Illuminati wants us to do.

The good news is that there is nothing to prove that the Illuminati is nearing its goal of constructing the New World Order. There is even no evidence to show that the Illuminati exists. However, in history, a group called the Bavarian Illuminati indeed existed in Europe sometime in the early centuries. Like the fictional Illuminati, the Bavarian Illuminati was born as a secret society. This is the reason why there are only a few accounts written that will tell us more about the group. Luckily, some of the accounts about the Bavarian Illuminati survived, one of them written by Adolph Freiherr von Knigge.
