MK ROOTS SECTION - FAMOUS MACEDONIANS - DID YOU KNOW?

MD.

As you may know we have written often about famous Macedonians from around the world who very few people know off them having Macedonian roots. We would like to add them all in a list into our 'MK Roots Famous Macedonians section' which you can find at the right side of this page or by clicking on the link or image below.

We will not include historical figures (like Alexander the Great, Aristotel or Cleopatra) to the list, but rather more recent famous Macedonians and less known for their Macedonian roots .

Do you know some celebrity or other famous person with Macedonian ancestry? Send us an email to spotting@macedoniadaily.org and we will add him/her to the list.

    * Bury & Meiggs (1985) “A History of Greece”
    page 415


    “The Macedonian people and their kings were of Greek stock,
    as their traditions and the scanty remains of their language combine
    to testify.”


    * H. Bengston (1988) “A History of Greece: from the beginnings to the Byzantine era”
    page 186.


    Bengston makes the following statement pertaining to the origins of the Macedonians:
    “They should be included in the group of North-West Greek tribes”
    On the same page he also states that :
    the majority of modern historians have correctly argued for
    the Hellenic origin of the Macedonians.

    * N.G.L Hammond (1986) “A History of Greece to 332 B.C.”
    page 651.


    “Greece and Macedon were akin in blood and culture.”


    * N.G.L Hammond (1992) “The Miracle that was Macedonia”
    page 206.


    Hammond states:
    “As members of the Greek race and speakers of the Greek language,
    the Macedonians shared in the ability to initiate
    ideas and create political forms.”


    * M. Opperman (1996) “The Oxford Classical Dictionary 3rd ed.- Macedonia,Cults”
    page 905.


    In this prestigious source Opperman states:
    “Nowadays historians generally agree that the Macedonians ethnos
    form part of the Greek ethnos; hence they also shared in the common religious and cultural features of the Hellenic world“

    Are you saying Cleopatra and Aristotle were ethnic Macedonians?!

    Nobody was 'greek' before the 1830's. This is fact

    Long live Macedonia and the Macedonians. May all impostors rot.

    да живее Македонија и Македонците засекогаш

    GET A LIFE MONKEYDONIAN STUPID!
    LEARN THE ALPHABET FIRST SO THAT YOU CAN READ THE WORLD HISTORY AND AFTER HAVE AN OPINION!
    FOR THE MOMMENT YOU ARE A STUPID MONKEYDONIAN!

    In typical "Macedonian Fashion" this list leaves off the most famous Macedonian of the last 100 years: Mother Teresa. It's no wonder your country is so backwards...

    Maybe you are a bit 'backward' because if you've read the article good enough, you would have seen that this list is only for currently, famous macedonians who many people do not know off. You also would have read that we purposely decided to not add historical figures and macedonians who everybody knows they are macedonian.

    So next time, read a bit better before criticizing.
