3) why did Macedonia not achieve sovereignty and was partitioned?
1. No because it was a part of the Ottoman Empire and not an independent state, therefore it had no official representation though Macedonians did send petitions to the conference.

2. Likely because it's been collated with other Ottoman territories and there is little need to single it out, this is either intentional or the work of our keyboard warrior neighbours.

3. Because we were partitioned by the neighbouring states who had no desire to allow an independent Macedonia to flourish. The Great Powers also preferred partition as they feared such a wealthy and prosperous region being independent of them or their proxies.
I know of two tragic histories in the world- that of Ireland, and that of Macedonia. Both of them have been deprived and tormented.
