Macedon (307 words)
The area's ancient inhabitants spoke a language closely related to the Greek of the states to the south, and from the 5th century BC Macedon was closely associated with Greek cultural and political development.
The Macedonian state emerged around the first half of the 7th century BC: after a brief period of Persian overlordship the country regained its independence under king Alexander I (498-454 BC).
Macedonian independence came to an end with the country's annexation as a province of Rome (146 BC).
Basil I (705 words)
Basil I, known as the Macedonian, Roman emperor in the East, was born of a family of Armenian (not Slavonic) descent, settled in Macedonia.
He spent a part of his boyhood in captivity in Bulgaria, whither his family was carried by the Bulgarian prince Krum[?] in 813.
He inaugurated a new age in the history of the empire, associated with the dynasty which he fouunded - "The Macedonian Dynasty" - it is usually called; it would be more instructive to call it "Armenian." It was a period of territorial expansion, during which the empire was the strongest power in Europe.
