This thread is dedicated to the long history of Fyrom
Sculpture of Alexander the Great from the 4th century. Not pictured, another sculpture of Phillip, which, when finished, will be from the 2nd century.
>which, when finished, will be from the 2nd century
This passive-aggressive thread belongs on /int/ though.
I'll annex it and declare it a thread about pre-Alexander Macedon.
Lets talk about how the state was prepared for greatness and why the southern greeks hated them so.
Actually I linked the thread, because it was dead and because some anon was posting reasonable history on /balk/.
I just wanted to recruit him for the /his/ thread. Didnt mean to attract your kind.
>the long history of Fyrom
THE CURRENT STATE KNOWN AS "REPUBLIC OF MACEDONIA" WAS ESTABLISHED IN THE TWENTIETH CENTURY, AND IS NOT HISTORICALLY RELATED TO THE REAL HISTORICAL KINGDOM OF MACEDONIA WHICH WAS LOCATED IN GREECE.
IT WOULD BE ONLY AUTHENTIC TO INSTEAD CALL IT "REPUBLIC OF PAEONIA", OR "REPUBLIC OF THRACE".
Yes, Greeks and their revolutionary war of 1821.
Greek population had lost its identity thoughout the 400 years of ottoman rule, it was reinvented by Greek scholars in europe, such as Rigas Fereos.
Americans developing a national identity, and most of the latin American nations are also good examples.
Well, FYROMians are stealing history.
Its like americans after their war of independence starting claiming they are Sioux indians because they live in the land the Sioux did many years ago, although not being related to them at all.
>greek population had lost its identity throughout the 400 years of ottoman rule
Let me guess. You believe the turks raped greeks meme?
There is no evidence supporting that claim.
Also did you knew that the ottomans used to kidnap greek boys and converted them to islam and made them soldiers? The descendants of those kids are today's turks in turkey.
