Propaganda about the Vlachs

March 13, 2012

By Nikolaos I. Mertzos*

Recently Romania blackmailed Belgrade into recognising a “Vlach Minority” in Serbia, while Romanian propaganda continues – not least in Greece. As well known, immediately following its creation, Romania during at least 73 continuous years between 1870-1943 spent whole rivers of gold trying to convince Vlach-speaking Greeks that they “are Romanians”, but failed miserably. The few exceptions only serve to confirm the rule. Since 1960 it continuous in softer tones this effort to corrupt, offering scholarships and other advantages to any young person from the Balkans who happens to come from a Vlach-speaking family, even a mixed one. It failed in Greece, but had success in FYROM and in Albania.

In our time, however, the issue is not limited only to Romanian propaganda. These last 25 years strong foreign centres have systematically been trying to achieve international recognition for a separate “Interregional Vlach Nation” in the Balkans, with corresponding minorities in each Balkan country. The purpose is obvious: internal strife and clashes within each people, destabilisation of each Balkan state and finally further splintering of the Balkan peninsula.

The Balkan peninsula is a critical geopolitical area because it controls the shortest route from and to the fields of the Kaspian and it controls the energetic security of the European Union, because it is traversed by energy pipelines, an area of antagonism between Washington and Moscow. For this reason the foreign centres call upon the fact that today there are Vlachs in Albania, Serbia, FYROM, Bulgaria, Romania and Greece. And this is absolutely true. However incontestable state archives, imperial orders, monuments, funerary markers, palaces, commercial centres and scientific works of foreign historians, not only for the Balkans but also for Austro-Hungaria, bear intemporal witness already from the 16th century, that all these Vlachs, with no exceptions, came from the famous Vlach villages of the greater Greek area, they were proud that they were Greeks, the cultivated and transmitted Greek education, transmitted the European Enlightenment, aided in a major way the fight to liberate the Nation and financially aided  small Greece as soon as it was liberated. This incontestable evidence proves the national identity of the Vlach-speaking Hellenism of this Diaspora, with names and surnames, region of origin, profession and date of these Vlachs.

In the countries that would later become Yugoslavia, Austria and Hungaria, the Greek Vlachs obtained mythical fortunes, enormous lands, very strong banks, rich palaces and titles of nobility from the Imperial house of the Hapsburgs. Having flourished in Venice, they dominated Rijeka and Tergeste [Trieste]. They dominated Buda, Pest and Vienna, where they constructed monumental Greek temples and enormous Caravan-Serais [Inns] for their caravans, they developed very strong businesses, they became great bankers, barons and secret advisors of the emperor. In Pest, the Greeks did not tolerate to take service in the Serbian church and ask permission to build their own one. The Greek petition “is signed by 300 Greek families, of which 2/3 are Macedonovlachs. 177 families originated in Moschopole. The collection for the temple brought in 32,454 gold florins. 26,000 were donated by Moschopolites: 40,000 franks from Alexandros Leporos, 2000 gold florins from Naoum Meska and Georgios Christodoulou”. The grand Greek temple of Pest is inaugurated in 1770 and is dedicated to the Assumption of Mary. At the same time the Greek Macedonovlachs in the Serbian town of Šabac upkeep four schools: a boys school, a girl school, a high school and a professional school.

As soon as the first free Greek state was created, the Greek Vlachs of Vienna were the first to sent the Governor their rich aid in 1830, to help the orphans of the Revolution. On 16 May 1830, the Governor Ioannis Kapodistrias wrote to the Vlach mogul Georgios S. Sina, head of the great national donators of the same name: “We received with great gratefulness the quantity of 2,007/100 “double-columns” [reals or pieces-of-eight] which you and the other compatriots of Vienna offered freely (…) May your example rouse more Greeks from abroad (…) We express to you, Sir, and to your compatriot Graeco-Vlachs much gratefulness on the part of the orphans, and from us, our extreme esteem”.

It can also be noted that Vlachs in the Modern Balkans were the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Yugoslavia Koca Popovic and the Prime-Minister of FYROM Hari Kostov. Of Vlach origin also are in Serbia the current president Boris Tadic, in Albania the head of the opposition Edi Rama and in Greece the president of N.D. [main opposition party] Antonis Samaras.

Thus it this Greek substratum of the Balkans that is now being attempted to be internationally recognised as a separate “Inter-regional Vlach Nation”! It is hard to kick against the goad. But let the guardians know.

    There are no Vlachs! Vlach is a term use by non-Romanian populations to refer to us. The anti-Romanian propaganda it’s made by other countries.

    Nota: In Ungaria ( Panonia), Transilvania, Muntenia (Sud Estul Rominiei), Sirmia ( Regiunea fluviului Sava in Serbia).

    Toti acestia erau un singur popor cunoscut de Popa Clement VII ca Vlahi Romani

    “Caci acestia (Vlachs) sunt asa numitii Daci si Besi. Si locuiau mai intii linga riul Dunare si Saos, riu pe care acum il numim Sava,unde locuiesc mai de curind Sirbii, in locuri intarite de natura si greu accesibile. ….de aceea Romeii (Bizantinii) minuidu-se au pornit, cum am spus, impotriva lor si i-au zdrobit. Si acestia, fugind de acolo, s-au imprastiat in tot Epirul(Dyrrhachium si Nicopolis) si toata Macedonia, iar cei mai multi dintre ei s-au asezat in Elada (include Tesalia)”

    Nota: Se arata foarte clar ca Vlahii erau toti acelasi popor.

    Vlahii sunt descrisi ca fiind un popor de Daci si Besi pe care Bizantinii i-au fortat sa se refugieze peste tot in Balcani.

    Alte lucruri bune de stiut:

    The Romanians were known in the past as:
    VALACHUS (By the Catholic West)
    FLACI(By catholic West)
    IFLAK (By the Turks)
    VLASI & VOLOH (By the Slavs)
    OLAH &BLACH (By the Hungarians)
    OLAHOK (By the Hungarians)
    OLASZOK (The Hungarian name for the Italians)
    WALACH (By the Germans)
    WALSCHER (The German name for the Italians)
    BLACHOS & VLACHOS (By the Greeks)
    BLOCH (By the Saxons in Transilvania)
    WOLOSZY (By the Polish)
    WLOCHI (The Polish name for the Italians)
    In old German WALH = ROMAN
    In Gothic VOLK = ARMED PEOPLE
    In old slavonic VLAST = POWER(considered of Gothic origin)
    In old slavonic VLAST = GIGANTE
    Romanians always called themselves ROMANS & RUMANS, RUMANI and the neighbors called them Vlachs,Vlasi,Olahs,etc.
    Since The language of the Church was Old Slavonic where RUM = ROME
    The Vlachs called themselves Ruman
    The other people in Europe who claim roots from Rome are in Switzerland and call themselves “Romanish”

    From:
    CONSTANTINE FLAVIUS PORPHYROGENITUS (BYZANTINE EMPEROR 913-959)
    From “De administrando imperio”.Constantine’s surname,
    PORPHYROGENITUS(that is, born in the Purple Chamber of the Imperial
    Palace in CONSTANTINOPLE).
    “The emperor Diocletian was much enamored of the country of Dalmatia,and
    he brought folk with their families from ROME and settled them in this
    same country of Dalmatia,and they were called ROMANI (VLACHS) from their
    having been removed from ROME, and this title attaches to them until this
    day…”
    “The territory possessed by the ROMANI used to extend as far as the river
    Danube”
    (Constantine shows that the ROMANS(Latins, NOT Greek Romans or
    Byzantines) or Vlachs are the original Romans.
    “The country of the ZXHLUMI was previously possessed by the ROMANS, I
    mean, by those ROMANI whom Diocletian the emperor translated from ROME”
    (Constantine is talking about the Imperial Romans,who are going to be
    known under the name of VLACHS).

    “The country of Diocleia was also previously possessed by the
    ROMANI(Vlachs) whom the emperor Diocletian translated from ROME”
    “The country in which the Pagani now dwell was also previously possessed
    by the ROMANI(Vlachs) whom the emperor Diocletian translated from ROME
    and settled in Dalmatia”.
    “At that time when the Avars had fought and expelled from those parts the
    ROMANI(Vlachs) whom the emperor Diocletian had brought from ROME and
    settled there,and who therefore called ROMANI from their having been
    translated from ROME to those countries”
    SUMMARY: In his description of the Greek Roman Empire,we can definitely
    identify two people,the Imperial Romans(VLACHS-those Romans who
    initiated the empire),called by Constntine,ROMANI, and the Greek
    Romans(BYZANTINES-those Romans who adopted GREEK as the language of the
    State and Church).

    are of Italian stock…, A colony of the ROMANS was settled there (Dacia)
    to keep a tight rein over Dacians under the leadership of a certain
    Flaccus, after whose name the coutry was called Flacohia and its
    inhabitants were called VLACHS instead of Flacci. This people speaks now
