The Illuminati was a short-lived secret society based in Bavaria, Germany, with Adam Weishaupt as leader. It was similar to Freemasonry and promoted liberal ideas. It was founded in 1776 and banned in 1785.

Some conspiracy theories have made claims such as that the organization continued to secretly exist and to have influenced events such as the French Revolution.
