Apocrypha Majorca


Peasant dress

The male regional dress of the Balearic Islands have a clear differentiation.


In Ibiza their regional male costumes are similar to the Catalans.
However, the feminine dress is a very different thing.

As you can see the traditional dress of women of Catalonia does not resemble that of Ibiza or Mallorca

Perhaps the Ibiza female dress is part of the Muslim heritage, or perhaps this dress is part of the Phoenician heritage of this entire territory. What is certain is that it has absolutely nothing to do with Catalonia.

The Catalan conquest of Ibiza was another massacre , where probably the majority of men were killed and those who remained were enslaved. As we are told in this article (translation) in "Diario de Ibiza", "the depopulation was such that repopulation campaigns had to be carried out with people from Tarragona" .
However, remember that in Ibiza salty speech is used, as in the other Balearic Islands, something that obviously is not shared with Tarragona. And the architecture of Ibiza has absolutely nothing to do with Tarragona or the rest of the islands. Probably people came from Tarragona, mostly men, who mixed with the Ibizan women. Women who kept their Ibizan romance language and culture, and passed it on to their children.
In the same way as currently, the children of women from Ibiza or the rest of the Balearic Islands, married to men from anywhere in the Iberian Peninsula or abroad, who have been educated by their mothers and grandmothers, have absorbed the maternal culture as their own, while the culture of their fathers, in most cases, has been seen as something alien to them.

The three images are of Iberian origin. The relationship of Iberian people with Phoenicians and Carthaginians dates back to centuries before Christ.
The Carthaginians (they were a people of Phoenician origin who settled in Carthage, in present-day Tunisia), They had their core influence throughout North Africa, the Southeast of the Iberian Peninsula and the Balearic Islands.
Do you think it's a coincidence, or is it much more?

Look at the necklaces in the two images. The shape of the upper and lower necklace. Look at the apron and its folds, the rings of his fingers... Judge yourselves








In Mallorca and Menorca this suit is totally different. This costume is not only that of regional dances. It was the peasant costume , which was still used more than 100 years ago.

Why would an island repopulated by Catalans, or with a majority Catalan population, use this clothing so different from the Catalan peasant?
The answer is very simple, the Catalan repopulation is a farce that has been imposed in our educational system by blood and fire, as a dogma of faith. Nobody tells us where many Catalans came from to repopulate the Balearic Islands, if Valencia was conquered 8 years later and supposedly also repopulated by Catalans, if at that time still issued letters to repopulate areas of Catalonia, simply absurd.
As they could repopulate the Balearic Islands and Valencia, when they had no Christian population to repopulate Catalonia itself.

People came from what would later be Catalonia and from other places. It was a trickle of people over a period of more than 100 years. Settlers who were simply reabsorbed by the native population.

Balearic Islands was linked to the Byzantine Empire. Centuries after their fall, in this same territory the Ottoman Empire emerged.




Here you have two links where you can see the typical costumes of Majorca and Catalonia 100 years ago. www.paraisobalear.com y SD_100AnysVestits, so you can compare if you want






And here you have the clothes they used in the area of the current Turkey. Remember that the Balearic Islands was part of the Byzantine Empire since the sixteenth century until the arrival of the Moors in the tenth century. Centuries after the fall of the Byzantine Empire, the Ottoman Empire arises in this same territory. The clothing of the Byzantine population in all likelihood was similar to Ottoman. This male clothing could be adopted by the population of Balearic Islands in the time of the Byzantine Empire.
The capital of the empire was Constantinople, in the current Turkey.

Obviously for Catalanism this is just coincidences. According to them, the peasant dress is a fashion of Majorca and Menorca for just a couple of centuries.
The only true truth is that the glorious Catalan people, the spiritual reserve of the West, the chosen people, conquered and repopulated all the Balearic Islands, all Valencia and a part of Murcia. It does not matter if, as it is documented, at that time they did not have a population even to repopulate the Catalonia itself.
This is the only true truth and what our kids learn in our politicized educational system. AND THIS IS WHAT WE HAVE.
