Queen Elizabeth was a guy.

Freemasons and Illuminati- not positive if that counts for the time frame or not.

Salem witch trials- not sure if that counts as a CT.

Privateers vs pirates- not sure if that counts as a CT either.

There were a bunch of hoaxes, but I don't think those count as CT's?

1898 .. The explosion on the U.S.S. Maine was theorized, by elements of our government, to have been a conspiracy carried out by commie guerrillas ( the alqaeiouda of the day)

Some disagreed and more than one investigation was launched into the cause. The second most popular , and probably more likely theory, was spontaneous combustion of coal dust .

http://www.history.n...aqs/faq71-1.htm

"In 1911 the Navy Department ordered a second board of inquiry after Congress voted funds for the removal of the wreck of Maine from Havana Harbor. U.S. Army engineers built a cofferdam around the sunken battleship, thus exposing it, and giving naval investigators an opportunity to examine and photograph the wreckage in detail. Finding the bottom hull plates in the area of the reserve six-inch magazine bent inward and back, the 1911 board concluded that a mine had detonated under the magazine, causing the explosion that destroyed the ship.

Technical experts at the time of both investigations disagreed with the findings, believing that spontaneous combustion of coal in the bunker adjacent to the reserve six-inch magazine was the most likely cause of the explosion on board the ship. In 1976, Admiral Hyman G. Rickover published his book, How the Battleship Maine Was Destroyed. The admiral became interested in the disaster and wondered if the application of modern scientific knowledge could determine the cause. He called on two experts on explosions and their effects on ship hulls. Using documentation gathered from the two official inquiries, as well as information on the construction and ammunition of Maine, the experts concluded that the damage caused to the ship was inconsistent with the external explosion of a mine. The most likely cause, they speculated, was spontaneous combustion of coal in the bunker next to the magazine."

Are you looking specifically for conspiracy theories concieved in the past or just any concerning the past?

Edit: You did say historic rather than historical so I'm assuming the former but I just wanted to clarify.

She never married true, but she did have many lovers and was known to be quite a nymphomaniac.

Ok, then the obvious ones are,

Shakespeare's plays were written by pretty much anybody except Shakespeare, most notably Francis Bacon.

Jack the Ripper was really Queen's Victoria's son

The Lincoln assassination was not a confederate plot but organized by members of his own staff.
