Macedonia is a geographical and historical region of the Balkan peninsula in southeastern Europe whose area was re-defined in the early 20th century. It covers approximately 67,000 square kilometers and a population of 4.76 million. There is no official recognition of these arbitrary delimitation, especially since they include territories of Bulgaria, Serbia and Albania that are not called "Macedonia".
The Roman province of Macedonia was officially established in 146 BC, after the Roman general Quintus Caecilius Metellus defeated Andriscus of Macedon in 148 BC, and after the four client republics established by Rome in the region were dissolved. The province incorporated Epirus Vetus, Thessaly, and parts of Illyria and Thrace.
