Founded in 1776 on May 1st by Adam Weishaupt, the Bavarian Illuminati was a secret society that embraced secularism and opposed superstition and abuses of state power. Weishaupt wanted to limit the interference of the Church in public life and based the society on the Freemasons.
Although there have been several groups to take the name of”Illuminati” this original Bavarian Illuminati is the group that is usually referred to or that other groups have claimed to be linked to. By 1800, the Bavarian ruler, Charles Theodore had outlawed all secret societies and, along with the Roman Catholic Church, vilified the group to the point that they all but disappeared.
Since then, many organizations and individuals have claimed that the Illuminati and its offshoots have thrived in the shadows and maintain control and direction over the entire world.
The list of people suspected of being Illuminati Members over the last 200 years is astounding. Today we’re looking at just a handful of the many alleged Illuminati Members 2017.
