Socialists ahead of ex-Tsar Simeon II’s Liberal government in Bulgaria vote
PM Simeon Saxe-Coburg-Gotha is obviously related to Prince Albert, Queen Victoria’s husband. His father, Tsar Boris III, was on Germany’s side during World War II but wouldn’t go along with anti-Jewish policies nor declare war on Russia owing to the historic affinity between the two Orthodox and Slavic countries and so probably was murdered in 1943. There’s a Philadelphian connexion: young Tsar Simeon went to Valley Forge Military Academy in Wayne!
