YOU are ALL fools...

Alexander's conquest of Gayladda crushed democracy...

He was a conquerer and monarch...

He wasnt elected...get it?

Democracy is NOT Conquest...

Fools...The Macedonian Empire wasnt a democracy...PERIOD.

Hahahahahaha, it's truly amazing how brainwashing can damage critical thought and the ability to discern fact from fiction.

These poor skops are sooooooooo deluded that they reject reality, EVEN WHEN IT SLAPS THEM IN THE FACE!!! They are incapable of recognizing the truth, because if they do, they will have to admit that Alexander and the Macedonians CAN ONLY BE FREEK!

Poor, poor deluded skops!

Hahahahahahaha!!!

Actually the topic IS correct. As all know, Alexander´s royal house was of descent from the Argeiad Dynasty in the city of Argos, Peloponesos.
The dynasty of the Argeiads was founded by Heracles himself.

Conquest of the Planet of the Apes, err Greeks, of course...

In a democracy the people vote...

Hey what do you know...its only been like 2300 years since real democracy existed in Gaylada...Alex snuffed it out until the western powers made you a country in the 1800's for their own colonial interests...and even then you had most of your modern history with foreign rule, or dictatorships...

Reality, 30 years of pseudo democracy (1970's) after the last dictatorship...and still you deny the rights of your minorities...

How easily you forget what is past and most recent...

Gaylada is a failed experiment of democracy...

Free Macedonia, get your finances in order and then, maybee then you will earn some respect...

By persisting in displaying your STUPIDITY, you are just proving how correct Greece is by objecting to the use of the Glorious Greek Name, MACEDONIA by you morons!

It's like a troop of monkeys claiming they came up with the Theory of Evolution, instead of Charles Darwin.

AAAAAAAAAAAhahahahahahaha!!! IDIOT!

By the way, just to try and educate you a little, in the hope something will seep into your tiny brain, the Ancient Greeks had MANY different form of Government, see if you can recognize these PURE GREEK WORDS!

Oligarchy, Aristocracy, Autocracy, Tyranny, Anarchy, Democracy, Theocracy... see little skop, we wrote the book on POLITICS!

A hellenic kingdom in the age of democracy...

ALL WRONG

A group of hellenic city states subjected to conquest by a foreign Macedonian Kingdom...the end of democracy in Gaylada until the 1970's...when your dictatorships ran out...

30 years of recent democracy...really you only have 10 years or so on us in this game...

And you still havent got the hang of it...
Democracy includes minority rights...

Since you are interested in antiquity, you should talk about the period of time that concerns you and your Slavic race. The coming of Slavs in the Balkans happened after the 7th cent. People and facts before that time are none of your business.

Yesterday matters as well but going back 2300 years is a bit of a stretch...

Ovchar! Watch this: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_hdgmnPXrcbM/S9G6IBo...

You are clowns! And YES, the world are watching..and laughing, even in Pakistan they loudly laugh at skopians:

Apparently so, according to the government in Skopje, the Slavic speaking majority have ample evidence to rightfully press their ancient origins as far back as Alexander the Great. They even found a group of long lost relatives among the Hunza tribes of Pakistan, who were invited and flown to Skopje by Gruevski´s government with much pageantry and fanfare and which according to the local historians, are descendents of Alexander´s troops and hence distant relatives of the ethnic Slavs of FYROM. Interestingly, while no foreign media at Skopje was able to interview the (suspicious) State guests, back in Pakistan word had spread of the tale resulting in the production of a local comedy loosely translated ´Iskander and the new Yunana (Greeks).´ The play ridicules the ethnic Slavs of FYROM as too backward, vulgar, and incompetent to be the descendents of the famous ancient Greek warrior Iskander (Alexander) reducing FYROM´s fanciful assertions to local tribal jokes. More amusingly, however, was that FYROM unaware, had not picked up on it at the time.

Athens was the ONLY city-state that practiced a form of democracy. Does that mean that the Spartans, Thessalians, Epirotes, etc, were not Greeks?

List of Rulers: The Ancient Greek World

The following abridged list of rulers for the ancient Greek world is primarily for the rulers of the Hellenistic age (323–31 B.C.), after the time of Alexander the Great. In the preceding centuries, the dominant geopolitical unit was the polis or city-state. GREEK CITY-STATES WERE GOVERNED BY A VARIETY OF ENTITIES, INCLUDING KINGS, OLIGARCHIES, TYRANTS, AND, AS IN THE CASE OF ATHENS, A DEMOCRACY
