Wikipedia is redirecting users searching for Macedonia toward a page about “North Macedonia”. The result of an extensive confrontation between Wikipedia editors from neighboring countries, the text of the article presents a highly poticised version of Macedonia’s history, depending on the editor’s preference.

Much of historic background of the article is devoted to the kingdom of Paeonia, a go-to theory of some Greek nationalists who claim that the current Macedonian Republic should identify with the name of this kingdom and not the wider geographic region of Macedonia. The Macedonian national awakening is described as Bulgarian national revival, and the Macedonian language is described as mutually intelligible with the Bulgarian.
