The official doctrine of modern-day Macedonia (FYROM) inspired by the propaganda of Tito's communist Yugoslavia holds Samuil to have been the Tsar of a great medieval "Macedonian" empire, an allegation based solely on the geographic scope of the First Bulgarian State in the Balkans (681 AD-1018 AD), which included lands from the Black Sea to the Adriatic, where southwestern cities such as Ohrid were of crucial importance.

One of the heaviest blow to the doctrine of so called "macedonianism" proclaiming a separate historical identity of the modern-day Macedonian nation is the Bitola Inscription of Tsar Ivan Vladislav, Samuil's nephew, in which he says that the Bitola fortress near Ohrid was rebuilt in 1015-1016 "by Ivan, Tsar of Bulgaria", who was "Bulgarian by birth" "as a haven and for the salvation of the lives of the Bulgarians."

You turkoslavs of Vardarska Banovina are a complete joke! You can't build an identity by erecting statues of heros from other countries!

Makedonia was born Greek not turkoslavic!

If Tsar Samuil was Makedonas, his killer would have been known as, Basil, the Makedon Slayer, not Basil, The Bulgar Slayer.

"In 1014 Basil was ready to launch a campaign aimed at destroying Bulgarian resistance. On July 29, 1014, Basil II and his general Nikephoros Xiphias outmanoeuvred the Bulgarian army, which was defending one of the fortified passes, in the Battle of Kleidion. Samuel avoided capture only through the valour of his son Gabriel. Having crushed the Bulgarians, Basil was said to have captured 15,000 prisoners and blinded 99 of every 100 men, leaving 150 one-eyed men to lead them back to their ruler. Samuel was physically struck down by the dreadful apparition of his blinded army, and he died two days later after suffering a stroke. Although the extent of Basil's mistreatment of the Bulgarian prisoners may have been exaggerated, this incident helped to give rise to Basil's nickname of Boulgaroktonos, "the Bulgar-slayer", in later tradition."

These baboons are brainwashed so far beyond their own reality. It's always fun to hear their idiotic responses when asked about providing some sort of evidence about their heritage.

Especially when they talk about how those big bad Greeks stole their lands in 1913. When in fact they are the invaders from baboon land. Even my friends who are not Greek think these retards are all out-of their skull.

God bless Greece and all her states i.e. Macedonia.

Talk to you later friend.

Whats worse guys is that coming out of FYROM is that there has been considerable evidence leaked out that they are planning a 30 metre statue of Phillip directly across from Alexander's statue.

Probabnly will call him Father of a Warrior on a horse...

I guess the turkoslavs of Vardarska Banovina have their tongues tied on this subject. Greek and Bulgarian statues going up all over Skopje. My God what a pathetic bunch of people! The world is laughing at your lame attempt of historical inaccuracies and revisionism!

It is very well known that Samuil is a genuine Fyromian figure.

The same goes for Alexander the Great, Goce Delchev, Dame Gruev adn Krste Misirkov I suppose.

And probably for any historic/heroic figure that they would like to choose.

They will become genuine Fyromian heroes that just happened to be stolen from other nations.

The heading should read. Bulgaria treats slavoskopians like retarded family members and lets them do and say whatever they want :)
