Vasilka Dimitrovska Another pathetic fyromian with an altered GREEK name.

Vaslika from the GREEK word Vasiliki meaning "queen"
Dimitrovski from the GREEK word Dimitrios meaning "loves of earth"

Dimitrios or Dimitriovski, has one meaning and nothing else.
Dim means, smoke.
Trios / trio / triovski, is a number of individuals who were smoking togather while making up some story for religious people.
When they got out from the smokio room, oll three
felth as if they were high up with God.
Meanwhile, the woman by the name Vasilika, which means Happy, Vesela / veselika, joined the grup of three very agreable gentlement.
Yes she was their Qeen for the night.
They all felth as if they were in Utopia.
Names derive from some cind of beleaf of working action. Nothing holy about that.
Smoke is smoke, but when it goes into your eye, all you can do is, cry.

PS, and so politics search how best to serve the people. Italian archeologysts should come and look at the Aquadacts in Macedonia. I have passed by one and was very impressed by its inginering splendor.
Yes it should be saved. Those who use the Aquadact for building materiol, should be panished . Its a crime to destroy antiquity.

Alexander the Great (356-323 BC), the king of Macedonia that conquered the Persian empire and annexed it to Macedonia, is considered one of the greatest military geniuses of all times. He is the first king to be called "the Great."

Alexander is supposed to have been fair skinned, with a ruddy tinge to his face and chest. Plutarch stated that he had a pleasing scent. Like all Macedonians, Alexander liked his liquor, but his fondness for wine also caused some of his outbursts of rage. Alexander liked drama, the flute and the lyre, poetry and hunting, but what he truly wanted in his life, was a glory and valor, rather than easy living and riches. He was not fond of athletic contests, according to Plutarch.

Olympia,
mother of Alexander the Great

Philip II of Macedonia,
father of Alexander the Great

Alexander, born in Pella, the ancient capital of Macedonia, was the son of Philip II, king of Macedonia, and of Olympia, a princess of Epirus. Philip and Olympia wanted nothing less than the best for their son, so when he was 13, his parents hired Aristotle to be his personal tutor. Alexander was trained together with other children of the nobility at Aristotles Nyphaeon. It is here that Alexander met Hephastion, his future best friend and alter ego. Aristotle gave Alexander a thorough training in rhetoric and literature and stimulated his interest in science, medicine, and philosophy, all of which became of the utmost importance for Alexander in his later life. The two later became estranged, due to their difference of opinion on the status of foreigners; Aristotle saw them as barbarians, while Alexander sought to unite Macedonians and foreigners.

In 340 BC, when Philip went to Byzantium to fight rebels, Alexander, a mere 16 years old, was left in charge of Macedonia as regent, with the power to rule in Philip's name in his absence. That Alexander was given such a position at such a young age indicates that he was already accomplished in battle. But Alexander never got along well with his father, although Philip was proud of Alexander for the Bucephalus incident. Alexander had always been closer to Olympia than to Philip. Philip and Olympia also did not get along all that well, owing primarily to Olympia's non-Macedonian heritage.

The family essentially was split apart irreparably when Philip married a woman named Cleopatra, a Macedonian. At the wedding banquet, Cleopatra's father made a remark about Philip fathering a "legitimate" heir, i.e., one that was pure Macedonian. Alexander took exception and threw his cup at the man, and some sources say Alexander killed him. Enraged, Philip stood up and charged at Alexander, only to trip and fall on his face in his drunken stupor. Alexander, rather upset at the scene, is to have shouted:

"Here is the man who was making ready to cross from Europe to Asia, and who cannot even cross from one table to another without losing his balance."

When Philip divorced Olympia Alexander fled. Although allowed to return, he remained isolated until Philip was assassinated (some think that Olympia may have even had a role in Philip's murder), in the summer of 336 BC.
