Thessaloniki, Macedonia, Greece, 3rd eRepublik International meeting.

Dan 1,902, 00:21 Published in Albania Grčka od Makedonissa

Thessaloniki, Macedonia, Greece
3 words, 3 names, 3 ideas that since 2500 years ago have marched hand in hand through history, during all periods of Greek history, both good and bad.
This is the city that was chosen for the 3rd eRepublik International meeting, by the players themselves, following a tradition established in the previous 2 meetings.

Details about the event and the team behind it, you can find in this article which officially announced the meeting.

Some people have been saying lately that Greece changed the city names recently or right after the liberation of Macedonia from the Ottoman Empire in the 1910's or during 2nd World war and so on. I listened carefully to those arguments and I was very much intrigued by their persistence, so I searched for the truth. Not in any biased source, like Greek books or the kind, but in Europe. So let's see how European cartographers used to call the city:

This is an image from the Great Mercator Atlas, published in 1569 a.D in France (not sure about France though). In the red circle you can clearly see the name "Thessaloniki".


click on the map for larger image

A map by Jodocus, taken from Hondius, drawn around 1610 a.D. describing the path Paul took to spread the Gospel. Again in the red circle you can read "Thessalonica".

Without describing anymore, in the next few antique maps, you can clearly see in the red circle the name "Thessaloniki" written in English, German and French.
Also you can click on the maps for full size view.

Map of 1697


Map of 1845


Map of 1856


Map of 1878


Map of 1899



What is my point, you will wonder... Well, my point is to share the knowledge with all of you and to give you an even bigger incentive to visit Thessaloniki, Macedonia, Greece for the 3rd eRepublik International meeting.
I will not post modern photos of the city since you can easily find them online, this article is only a crash course on the name of the city as it is recorded on maps from the 16th century until our days.
Soon another article with more historical facts about Thessaloniki will be published, so stay tuned.

Thank you,
Makedonissa

Εξαιρετικό. Το 1993 είχαμε βρεί κάτι τέτοιες γκραβούρες στα Λατινικά και στα Γαλλικά νομίζω σε μαγαζί με αντίκες.... Και το λέω απλώς για να επιβεβαιώσω ότι όντως υπάρχουν και δεν είναι κατασκεύασμα.

Στο επόμενο περιμένω να εξηγήσεις και τί σημαίνει το όνομα Θεσσαλονίκη και ποιός το έβγαλε...

Και πάλι εύγε!
