Macedonia (Greek: Μακεδονία, Makedonía) is a geographical and historical region of Greece in southeastern Europe. It is the largest and second most populous Greek region. The capital of Macedonia is Thessaloniki.
This northern Greek province incorporates most of the territories of ancient Macedon, the kingdom ruled by the Argeads whose most celebrated members were Alexander the Great and his father Philip II.
Even before the establishment of the Modern Greek state in 1830, it was identified as a Greek province. Greek Macedonians came to be of particular importance during the Balkan Wars when they were a minority population inside the Ottoman province of Macedonia. The Macedonians now have a strong regional identity, manifested both in Greece and by emigrant groups in the Greek diaspora. This sense of identity has been highlighted in the context of the Macedonian naming dispute after the break-up of Yugoslavia, in which Greece objects to its northern neighbour calling itself the "Republic of Macedonia", since explicit self-identification as Macedonian is a matter of national pride for many Greeks.
