Historical Region
Historical regions (or historical countries) are geographic areas which at some point in time had a cultural, ethnic, linguistic or political basis, regardless of present-day borders. They are used as delimitations for studying and analysing social development of period-specific cultures without any reference to contemporary political, economic or social organisations.[1]The fundamental principle underlying this view is that older political and mental structures exist which exercise greater influence on the spatial-social identity of individuals than is understood by the contemporary world, bound to and often blinded by its own worldview - e.g. the focus on the nation-state.[2]Definitions of regions vary,[3] and regions can include macroregions such as Europe, territories of traditional states or smaller microregional areas

Aeacidae
Aeacidae[pronunciation?] (Greek: Αἰακίδαι) refers to the Greek descendants of Aeacus, including Peleus, son of Aeacus, and Achilles, grandson of Aeacus—several times in the Iliad Homer refers to Achilles as Αἰακίδης (Aiakides: II.860, 874; IX.184, 191, etc.). Neoptolemus was the son of Achilles and the princess Deidamea. The kings of Epirus and Olympias, mother to Alexander the Great, claimed to be members of this lineage. Aeacus of Greek mythology was the king of the island of Aegina, which is in the Saronic Gulf. From this mythology, Aeacus is the son of Zeus and Aegina, a daughter of Asopus and Metope. Aeacus' first wife was Endeïs, a woman of unknown parental lineage. They had two sons: Peleus (father of Achilles) and Telamon (father of Ajax). Aeacus' second wife was the Nereid, Psamathe. They had a son called Phocus. References[edit] This article incorporates text from a publication now in the public domain: Smith, William, ed. (1870)
