So we have sources openly citing Slavonic persons that had reached prominent positions in military and political life within East Rome, as early as the reign of Justinian and well into the Macedonian period.

Who is this brilliant Slav marshal, ANDREW CRATERUS?

The name Craterus (Kratero) is an ancient Macedonian name by origin, used later during the Roman period also. Interestingly, this Macedonian name was used as the family name of the Christian Slav called Andrew.

Craterus was not only an Ancient Macedonian name, but probably one of the most powerful names in Macedonia during and after the Death of Alexander the Great.

Craterus was his best general, or best fighter. He was also a Kosturchanec.

Basil was illiterate all his life!

His mother was probably of Slavic origin and he was Armenian by father side.

True hardcored fullblooded Greek! haha

It is more than likely that both the Macedonian Dynasty and Tsar Samuel's family were a mix of local Slavonic and imported Armenian elements. The above source you posted sounds similar to the story of Justin, an illiterate peasant with a 'barbarian' wife called Lupicina, that became Roman Emperor from his humble beginnings. Such a rich history Macedonia has.

Another interesting find:

Thomas the Slav was originally a Byzantine military and naval commander entrusted with a very high command during the reign of Emperor Leo V the Armenian.

A picture of Thomas the Slav (left) and the attack by Mourtagon (Khan Omurtag).

Khan Omurtag sent an army to help Michael II put down the rebellion which attacked the rebels from the rear and defeated them.

And look where Thomas the Slav was born:




The Theme Armeniakon is located in eastern Turkey on the Black sea coast.

I have a few interesting sources here;

I find it interesting that the Sultan of Egypts letter mentions Macedonians.
