The Thracians apparently did originate in the Baltic region, even if they prove to have nothing to do with the ethnogenesis of the Swedes.
The Thracian-Phrygian-Dacian group was considered by classical historians to be only less numerous than the Indians. It's not surprising that they played an important role in European history, a fact that hasn't been given adequate attention until relatively recently. The Thracians are only going to become more prominent in future revisions of history, and the Bulgarians ought to be vigorously staking their claim to Thracian heritage now.
Interesting. So Troy was founded by Thracians, the Swedes are Thracians, the Romanians (Dacians) are Thracians and some of the Bulgarians are also Thracians (you can recognize them by their hoarse voices, their wild faces, they have never had their hair or beard cut and their right hand is always ready to thrust the knife that they have fastened to their hip). Even on this forum there are Thracians too;)
