LEEM - Aromanians (Fun)
Posted 4 years ago by

Aromanians is an ethnic group of Romans scattered in the mountain regions of Macedonia, Southern and Central Albania, Northern Greece, southern Bulgaria and Romanian Dobrudja. Their language is Aromanian, which is related to Romanian. It may be considered a mixture of Romanian and local dialects and languages, especially Greek and Albanian.

The origins of Aromanians are the subject of disputes, and together with Albanians, the ethnic group of the Balkans still remains unclear. One theory states that Aromanians are descendants of Roman legionaries and colonists who settled south of the Danube and mingled with the native population in the territory where they settled while the Latin language persisted. According to another theory, they are descendants of the Romanized Trac, who during the Slavic invasions of the Balkans in the 6th century. They have thrown out of Thrace into mountain areas throughout the Balkans.

Aromanian mother tongue is Aromanian, the language of the eastern group. Most of the words come from Latin, but a large number of common words come from Greek, the influence of Albanian, less Slavic languages ​​and Turkish. Almost all of Aroma in present-day Greece, Albania and Macedonia were bilingual in the past, and they also used Greek, which was the language of trade, culture and church. They wrote only in Greek. Interestingly, Arumuni did not live with the Greeks in areas where the Greeks were the majority. They kept their tongue and traditions, sometimes they were distant from the Greek population, but they themselves were considered Greeks, just as the Greek-speaking population was called. The merging of the Greeks and Aromanians took place in the 20th century. And is associated with the massive urbanization of Greece. In other Balkan countries, Aromanians is an ethnic minority. Today, Aromanian is mainly used in Albania and Macedonia. In Greece, it has only about 20,000 inhabitants, while in the cities of Metsovo and Samarin, Arumun is the main and commonly used language. Serbia is not used at all.

In the past Aromanians belonged to excellent shepherds, lived in alpine areas and kept a large number of sheep and goats. Aromanians in the cities fed primarily business, they were excellent entrepreneurs who traded with the whole of Europe. They are mostly Orthodox and Catholic faiths. The traditional culture of Aromanian has always been associated with pastoral life.

Metsovo is a city in Greece, in the region of Epirus, east of Ioannina, in the North Pine Mountains. They live here Aromanians. The first evidence of settlement is from the 10th century, when the shepherds settled here, probably the Romanesque Aromanians. The first mention of the town is from the 14th century. Nowadays, Metsovo is a small, peaceful city, with 4,500 inhabitants, all of whom speak Aromanian. Cheeses of metsovane and metsovelas are produced here.

Everything depends on the players themselves and how they decide to shape the political map of the game.
