The Republic of Macedonia or the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia has no right to proclaim themselves as a descendant of Alexander the Great or Alexander III of Macedon. The Macedonians are slavic, who at the time of Alexander the Great were undocumented. The first recorded instance of slavs were the Vistula Veneti on the Vistula River in the First Century A.D.
The Empire of Macedon was nearly a milennia before this. The Greek Macedonians were a mixture of Greek and the Thraco-Illyrian tribes to the north, not related to Slavs.

The South Slavs, which is the ethnicity of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia were created by the tribes who settled into the Byzantine Empire with permission. This ended up in the serbian empire founded by Stefan Dušan which after its fragmentation created the various south slavic dialects which evolved into seperate languages including Macedonian.

The Macedonians do live in the Macedonia region but that doesn't mean they can claim Alexander the Great as they are not directly descended from the Macedonian Peoples. They are merely a product of Slavic settlements in former Macedon.

This is a really specific debate. I feel like a disgruntled Yugoslav state citizen wrote this haha.
