Many passages in ancient authors record echoes of the traditions, testimonia and opinions regarding the nationality of the Macedonians, or, more narrowly, of the Macedonian royal family.

After completing this review, we shall proceed to an assessment of their content and arrive at definitive conclusions derived from this kind of evidence.

Macedonia belongs to Greece.

It is historically approved by many historians from all over the world that the people of Skopje are Slavs or other races, but have nothing to do with the people of Alexander the Great!

Macedonians were Greeks and spoke the Greek language. Numerous excavations in all of the ancient Macedonia area have consistently unearthed relics clearly with Greek writings, and depictions of rulers clearly designated with Greek names.

In ancient Greek culture, Macedonians celebrated the same festivals with the rest of the Greeks. They took part in the Olympic games which at the time was only participated in by the Hellenes.

The regions that comprised the area of Macedonia all had Greek names.

Furthermore, the architecture of the palaces, temples, theaters & ancient markets are all characteristic samples of ancient Greek architecture of the time.

These Hellenic structures clearly included Greek writings on them which without a shodow of a doubt prove that they were dveloped by the Greeks and belonged to the Greeks.

The ancient Macedonians believed in the same 12 Gods of Olympus as the rest of the Hellenes. In addition, the Macedonians fought together with the rest of the Hellenes against barbarians.

To the Greeks at the time, a barbarian was defined as any group of people who did not share the same developed culture. Any group of people outside of civilized Greece was defended against by all of Greece, which included Macedonia.

Last but certainly not least, Macedonia was a member of the Delphic Amfictiony, an institution which was open only to Greeks.....

The people of Skopje are Slavs or other races, but have nothing to do with the people of Alexander the Great, the Macedonian Greeks !

United Macedonians wrote:
"Reference has been made [...] to an ancient tradition, according to which the Dorians were descended from a section of the Makednoi or Makedones. This tradition came down to Herodotos either through information he himself gathered in some Doric city,52 or through a very ancient epic poem, the Aigimios.53 The surviving fragments of this poem, together with other sources, reveal more precisely that the Dorians were formed by the union of some Macedonians with other tribes. The Dorians were pure Greeks. Various attempts to derive one section of them from Illyrian origins have been unsuccessful. In any case, these attempts were concerned with the Doric tribe the Hylleis, which was certainly not identical with the Makednoi.54 The fact that the Dorians were Greek naturally presupposes that the tribes of which they were composed were also Greek, and these include the Makednoi or Makedones, at a date earlier than the fourteenth century (see page 46)."

Lets clear the issue here.

Macedonia NEVER was something else but ONLY Greek.

Just as Alexander the Great was Greek.

History and historical facts, cant and will not be ignored.

From all the ancient sources we are receivers of the same message.

Alexander the Great never missed a chance to verify his pride for his Greek ancestry.

His parents had Greek origins.

Alexander considered himself as a Greek.

He spoke Greek.

He grew up and was educated from famous Greek teachers like Aristotle and had as his favourite book Iliad of Homer.

He worshipped the same gods like the rest of Greeks.

He undertook and accompliced to a military campaign based on the long-term hostility between Greeks and Persians, as leader of the Greeks. Both he and his army spread the ancient Greek language and culture to the fringes of India and therefore Alexander has justifiably been used for centuries as a symbol of Greek civilisation.

Just read:

[2] Kapetanopoulos ‘Sirras – Eurydice’

The fake republic of Skopje is vanishing day by day. The lies exposed the propaganda of Tito. People of Skopje must accept their true slavic origins.

Alexander the Great pass from many countries! Ask Egyptians! Ask Persians! Ask Indians!
They do know who is Alexander the Great by first hand!
ALSO for Muslims, KORAN write it clearly who was Alexander the Great!
Funny eh?! But true, even the Islam recognize the Alexander's the Great, the First Greek Emperor glory :-)
Why FYROMIANS speak SLAVIC?! Do you know when Slavs came in the area of Balkans?! In 800 A.D.... 1000 years later of Alexander's the Great birth!
Bulgarians said thay FYROM stole them language.
by the way,
!! Did you know...?!!!
The first FYROM president in 1992, Kiro Gligorov said that they are Slavs and they don't have any connection with Alexander the Great and his Macedonia, also he notice that Alexander the Great is Greek.

Thank you for telling the truth!

Macedonia is and always has been Greek.

Alexander the Great spoke and wrote Greek, all he had in his life was Greek.

Religion.
Tradition.
Culture.
Customs.
Race.
Ethnicity.

Everything!
Macedonia is Greek and it will remain Greek!
