" Mannheim, Germany - The head of a German museum which is set to show an exhibition about Alexander the Great weighed into a dispute between Skopje and Athens on Friday, saying the ancient leader had been predominantly Greek. The modern state of Macedonia, where the main language is a Slavic one, claims the heritage of ancient Macedonia.
"Alexander was predominantly Greek and definitely not an ancestor of contemporary Slavic Macedonians," said Alfried Wieczorek, head of the Reiss-Engelhorn Museums in the southern German city of Mannheim.
The exhibition devoted to the ancient general and ruler, who lived from 356 to 323 BC, opens on Saturday and runs till February 21.
For two decades, Athens has been objecting to its northern neighbour calling itself Macedonia. Skopje has named its airport after Alexander and insists on having Alexander's "star of Vergina" symbol on its coat of arms.
In an interview with the German Press Agency dpa, Wieczorek said, "The latest research shows very clearly yet again that the Macedonians in the days of Alexander were closely related to the contemporary Greeks."
He added, "In antiquity, Greeks and Macedonians could interact because they spoke the same language."
Athens has been insisting that the name Macedonia can only been applied to a province in its own north.
The country of Macedonia became independent in 1991 when Yugoslavia split up. The name issue has held up efforts to bring the new country into NATO and into formal assocation with the European Union.
The museum director referred to findings that its population of 2 million, one quarter of them Albanian speakers and three quarters Slavic speakers, are descended from people who immigrated in the 6th century of the modern era, long after Alexander's death. "
This article is the only truth of the name issue.
And it really hurts the Fyromian nationalists...

You're wrong!
Your fake technical country is not Macedonia,it is Dardania and Paeonia!
Only the 10% of your area belongs to Macedonia and this part is occupied by Skopians and the rest of Bulgarians!
Very soon,Pelagonia(Northern Macedonia) will be Greek again,therefore free like our Macedonia,the authentic ancient Greek kingdom of Alexander in Northern Greece;)
And don't use these terms about Macedonia!"Aegean Macedonia" derives from the Bulgarian propaganda against Macedonia and you betray your Bulgarian origin when you use it;)
Hahahahaha....get it hypnotized server of Tito's nirvana!
Macedonia is Greece!No doubt about that you Skopian miserable thieve;)

Actually, to its contemporaries, in the West, to the Bulgarians, to the Persians (also a major empire during much of the Byzantine period), to the Arabs, and others, the so-called Byzantine empire was generally known as Empire of the Greeks or Greek empire and its emperor was called Greek emperor. Indeed, both historical and contemporary sources of the abovementioned origins attest to that truth.

None of the Byzantine dynasty members were ethnic Greek.They were just Romanized Serbs and Albanians mostly who took Greek names.Byzantine Empire is a name made up by western historians in 19th century.So, Byzantine was too far from being a "Greek" empire.Because it was Eastern Roman Empire.It's emperor was appointed by the Ceaser of Rome.

Constantinople never existed either.Romans called it Nea Roma.You G@yreeks are brainwashed in a massive scale and you talk about stealing history LoOoL.Of course western sources will approve your claims because they are the ones who spoiled you and brainwashed you with their 19th century political history version.

The primary and historical sources tell a different tale to your Stefovian one, file. Consider, for instance, the Chatalar Inscription.

The Chatalar Inscription is a medieval Greek inscribed text upon a column in the village of Chatalar (modern Han Krum, North East Bulgaria) by the Bulgarian Khan Omurtag (815-831). It was unearthed in 1899 by the archaeologists Fyodor Uspensky, M. Popruzhenko, Vasil Zlatarski and Karel Skorpil.

“Kana subigi Omortag, in the land where he was born is lord (archon) by God. In the field of Pliska staying he made a court/camp (aulis) at [the river] Ticha (Kamchiya) and moved his forces against the Greeks (i.e. Byzantines) and the Slavs and skillfully erected a bridge at Ticha together with the camp [he put] four columns and above the columns he erected two lions. May God grant the Lord by God to crush with his foot the Byzantine Emperor (Basileus) until Ticha flows... and over the many Bulgarians to rule, to subjugate his enemies, to live in joy and happiness for a hundred years The time when this was built was in Bulgarian Shigor Elem and in Greek Indiction 15.”

Lol,what an argument!All the people say lies and only Skopians say the truth,lol!
Anyway....German museum is not the only museum which supports that!Even Turkish museums like Istanbul Museum say the same thing!American,British,French, Australian,Russian museums also say the same things!
So,the only person who deserves to be cleaner is you cuz as you show us you're completely uneducated and probably you cannot do something else in your miserable life;)

Hahahaha....look who is talking about the stealing of the history!The fake Skopians who live under the illusion and nirvana that Tito created about you in 20 th century AD!!!!The people who stole everything in this world as all the museums and people say about you!!!!!You're the brainwashed people who eat like a sheep whatever Gruevski gives you as Georgievski said;)
You know nothing about history,you just analyze here the old yugoslav and Bulgarian propaganda against us Macedonians and the rest of Greeks!
It's time for you to learn some real history!!!!
Byzantine empire was a greek empire cuz the predominant demographic and cultural elements of the empire were Greeks!
The term was created in 15 th century AD by the historians because they saw that the Eastern Roman Empire was very different from the Roman empire of the antiquity!
Many members of the royal dynasties were Greeks especially those of Macedonian,Palaiologian,Aggelo i,Komninoi,etc!
The Princess Anna Comnene wrotes on her history..."WE ARE HELLENES BY BIRTH,LANGUAGE,EDUCATION" !
Pope Leon of the 8 th century AD wrotes on his letter to the Empress Irene of Athens...."YOUR EMPIRE IS THE EMPIRE OF THE GREEKS"!
All those facts are original which helped historians to find the truth!You can send your experts to check out their authentication;)
If you dare do it;)
And stop being brainless hypnotized server of Gruevski's fake makedonist ideology!
