TrueMacedonian will become famous soon enough
Default Dacia

Months ago I came across works by Ion Grumeza. Here's a link to his entire book "Dacia" - http://kresall.files.wordpress.com/2...ter-europe.pdf

on page 84 he states the following:



I don't think Grumeza is right about Philip not knowing Greek. But interesting nonetheless. Here is what he says in another one of his books about Macedonians:


The Roots of Balkanization: Eastern Europe C.E. 500-1500 By Ion Grumeza


What do you all think?

No doubt about it! The Macedonian royal house knew how to speak Greek. It was a part of their education system. Like he said in his comments: “Greek was the dominant language of the ancient world”

Most of the monarchies/royal houses knew how to speak a common language, so it no surprising that Thracian, Helene, Epirus, and IIIyrians could understand each other, but for the commoners forget about it they had no idea!

the common peole had their own mother touge macedonian.They never needed greek for any reason.Today you got greeks that say oh the macedonians never talked macedonian they talked greek.The whole idea of macedonian's being greek is totally BULLSHIT.
The macedonian army spoke macedonian.There was no need to speak greek.
So what do the greeks do is they BS that if the macedonians SPOKE greek then the must have been GREEK.When one looks at the macedonian language that was spoken & has evolved over the centuries one deducts that the two people were different.Language is one difference there are other differences.

In Terry Jones' "Barbarians" (a series of documentaries about nations that Romans considered barbaric and uncivilized ) there's one episode where I understood that the Dacians were completely wiped out from the face of the Earth by the Roman emperor Trajan sometime around 106 AD.They were traders and literary sitting on goldmines,and Trajan needed to finance his imperial campaign.Most of the forts,artworks etc after that period was built thanks to the Dacian gold.Trajan erected a big column with images of beheaded Dacians to celebrate the genocide over a nation.A very sad story indeed.Poor Dacians.

"Macedonians could trace their history back to the thirteenth century B.C., when they were put on the map by Alexander The Great".
Really?

I'm sorry, the author of this has no credibility.

Lol, where the hell did he get thirteenth century B.C from? Anyone could've given something more accurate, even from Wikipedia.

lol Grumeza is certainly not at the top of his class. Here is a review about Grumeza's book;

I've seen worse written by Macedonians and even worse by grks. This is typically "balkan".

The greaser elites have to create those myths and ideologies to control everything and provide entertainment and self-esteem to the greece while they continue to steal everyone blind 200 years now.

1st Century AD:
The Roman general, Aelius Catus, moved 50,000 Dacians into Thracia, which has been considered by some authors as proof that the Romans already had authority over the territory from the south of the lower Danube.
