The long reign of the Byzantine emperor Basil II (976 1025) has long been considered as a 'golden age', in which his greatest achievement was the annexation of Bulgaria after a long and bloody war. Paul Stephenson establishes that the legend of the 'Bulgar-slayer' was in fact created long after his death, and that his reputation was seized upon by scholars and politicians in the modern period, and used to help galvanize support for Greek wars against Bulgarians in Macedonia during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
