Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Most of the traditional historical narratives were invented in 19th century. By liberals of different liberal streams. The 19 century invented history and great historical narratives. In the popular perception of history, most of these narratives still rule.

To use an obvious example: The decadent byzantine empire, the middle age as dark ages - very much inventions of the liberal historians of the 19th century. And still holding sway.
