Nonexistent people, unlike fictional people, are those somebody has claimed actually exist. A nonexistent person may be 'created' as part of a practical joke, a hoax, a fraud, or even a copyright trap. Others, such as Praxedes and Prester John, were once thought to be historical individuals but are now viewed as legendary. This category contains articles about such nonexistent people. Very few articles should be in this category - instead, most articles should belong in one of its subcategories.
