When executing the following statement on a Windows machine it fails.
On a linux machine it returns the expected date (9999-31-12 00:00:00)
The Error we get on Windows is:
OSError: [Errno 22] Invalid argument

In another manor it was reported before:

The code:
from datetime import datetime

epoch_time = 253402210800000/1000

The supported range depends on the platform. The C runtime library in Windows can handle dates through the year 3000 [1]:

    >>> datetime.fromtimestamp(32536799999)
    datetime.datetime(3001, 1, 19, 7, 59, 59)

    >>> datetime.fromtimestamp(32536800000)
    Traceback (most recent call last):
      File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
    OSError: [Errno 22] Invalid argument
