War sehr erflogreich fur das Reich.
Zitat von Thrake
das reich basileos des II
Ja kla, griechische Stadtstaaten haben sich davor ja auch Gegeneinander niedergemetzelt.
Zitat von Macedonian
Römer haben sich auch selbst niedergemetzelt.
Aber wichtig ist doch nur, du kannst gegen die Mazedonier hetzen
Das interessante ist auch, das vermutlich sein Vorfahre Vasil I, aus dem geographischen Makedonien in das Thema Macedonia gezogen ist.
Das wäre insofern sensationell, da das griechische Argument, die makedonische Dynastie sei ausschließlich armenischer Herkunft nicht mehr greifen würde.
Basil I (Basil the Macedonian) (băz`əl, bā`zəl), c.813–886, Byzantine emperor (867–86). His ancestors probably were Armenians or Slavs who settled in Macedonia. He became (c.856) the favorite of Emperor Michael III. In 886, Basil, with the aid of Michael, assassinated Michael's uncle and chief minister, Bardas, and was made coemperor. Michael's feeling toward Basil began to change and in 867 Basil had him murdered and had himself proclaimed emperor. Thus the Macedonian dynasty of the East, which lasted until 1056, was founded. A capable ruler, Basil reformed the finances; modernized the law of Justinian I by introducing a new code, the Basilica; protected the poorer classes; and restored the military prestige of the empire. Byzantine art and architecture entered their second golden age during his rule. A major event of his reign was the dissension between the Roman and the Eastern churches. In order to prevent an open break, Basil restored (867) to the patriarchate Ignatius of Constantinople, who had been deposed in favor of Photius. On Ignatius' death, Basil reinstated (877) Photius, causing strained relations but not a full break with Rome. Basil in 865 had divorced his wife and married the mistress of Michael III. He was succeeded by his son Leo VI.

Vasil selbst nannte sich zu Lebzeiten "der in Pur Pur geborene"
In chapter five, Stephenson explores how the contemporary authors referred to Basil. An extensive survey of the Byzantine sources reveal that instead of Voulgaroktonos, Basil was generally referred to as porphyrogennetos or "born in the purple" to show he was the reigning emperor. Otherwise he was referred to as "the younger" or "the second". Thus Basil was known to the chroniclers and others as Basil II. This trend continued in the literature well beyond the life of Basil. Stephenson also reveals that this was well known even to biographers in the seventeenth century.
It is not until chapter six that the mystery is revealed in why Basil transforms from porphyrogennetos into the Voulgaroktonos. As one might suspect it has more to do with political changes, particularly in the ways that Bulgars were viewed in the twelfth century, rather than any particular historical activities. However, Basil image would decline again in later centuries, particularly with the rise of the Turks and a decline in the threat from the Bulgars.
