Online presence and trolling
Codfried has a long history of trolling history based discussion forums and posting absurd claims that virtually all notable European historical personages from classical antiquity to the 19th century were "Black" or "Negro". For example one of his most eccentric claims is that Jane Austen was a Black woman. Among his other outlandish claims are that Ludwig "von Beethoven", Elizabeth I, Shakespeare, David Hume and Immanuel Kant were also all Black. He further claims "white European" people are albino mutants and were once all serfs. He calls this theory "Blue Blood is Black Blood". Furthermore according to Egmond, any appearance of white shoes or clothes in old literature or paintings is evidence that the black nobles were using whites for their skins. He claims that white supremacism is a response to the fact that black nobles used to kill the whites and turn them into shoe leather.
He is known as the 'Dutch Mega Troll' across the web and has been banned on over fifty webforums. Forums like historum.com have banned his ISP. A small list of his bannings can be found here:
