Persistent errors on Wikipedia

Hello all,

I'm starting a research note on a persistent error in a Wikipedia article on an historical subject.

This error seems to have come out of nowhere. I've reviewed thousands of pages of documents relating to this topic, and I have no idea where people got this particular misconception: it seems to have no basis in either academic or popular history.

It's been corrected, but keeps coming back, and has now persisted for so long that it's creeping into scholarly work.
