Thrace (Bulgarian Тракия / Тrakija, Turkish Trakya) is a historical and geographical region of the Balkans in southeastern Europe. Today the name Thrace designates a region spread over southern Bulgaria (Northern Thrace), northeastern Greece (Western Thrace), and European Turkey (Eastern Thrace). The area belongs to Greece belongs administratively to the Region of Eastern Macedonia and Thrace. Thrace borders on three seas: the Black Sea, Aegean and Marmara. In Turkey, also called Rumeli. The historical boundaries of Thrace vary. Ancient Thrace (ie the territory where lived Thracian tribes) included the present-day Bulgaria, European Turkey, northeastern Greece and parts of eastern Serbia and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. Its limits were between the river Danube in the north and the Aegean Sea in the south, the east, the Black Sea and the Propontis (Sea of Marmara) and to the west by the river Vardar and Morava. The Roman province of Thrace was somewhat smaller, with the same east and south sea boundaries and borders in the north to Mount Haemus. The Roman province extended in the west to the river Nestos.

Throughout the Ottoman Empire, the Ottomans saw their nationals to Muslims and non-Muslims, naturally giving more privileges to the Muslims as first class citizens. As an example of measures taken by the Ottomans, we can mention the mass kidnapping of children and The hike or poll tax. In this historical phase several Thracian null were Muslim, or the above incentives or because one Muslim syncretistic sect of kizilmpasidon, which has several elements in common with Christianity. Some years later changed the policy of the Ottoman state after milder measures, as a large part of the null had already become Muslims, and thus do not pay taxes, greatly reducing the state revenues [citation pending].

The Greek people were absorbed by the local Greek population, thus now considered Thracians. Modern Age
With the Treaty of San Stefano in 1878 founded the "Greater Bulgaria", which covered the greater part of Thrace. With the revision of the Treaty of the Berlin Congress, the territorial scope of autonomous Bulgaria was limited and northern Thrace became a separate state, tributary to the Sultan, named "Eastern Rumelia." The rest of Thrace remained under Ottoman rule. In 1886, through a coup, Eastern Rumelia united with the Bulgarian state. In the Balkan Wars of 1912-1913 in Western Thrace was annexed to Bulgaria, while the East, including Adrianople, remained in the Ottoman Empire. The Treaty of Neuilly in 1919 yielded the bulk of Western Thrace in Greece, with the Treaty of Sevres and Eastern Thrace to the measure came to Greece. But after the Asia Minor Catastrophe, the Greek army was forced to evacuate Eastern Thrace and retreat beyond the Ebro. This situation was consolidated with the signing of the Treaty of Lausanne finalized the Turkish border today.
