Title: Tzar Boris III of Bulgaria and his family
Post by: popov_2000 on March 22, 2006, 11:50:15 PM
Two pictures of Tsaritsa Ioanna.

The first picture was taken in Madrid in 1991 at the home of Simeon II. On the picture you can see Ioanna and her son Simeon II.

The second picture was taken in Portugal in 1998 at the home of Ioanna. On the picture you can see Ioanna and then Bulgarian President Peter Stoyanov with his wife.

It seemed to me that Princess Giovanna had at some point converted to orthodoxy. I remember reading that during her exile in Portugal catholic royals were reluctant to meet her because of that. Need to check my sources.



Giovanna never converted.  She remained Roman Catholic but raised her children in the Orthodox church.  She had a Roman Catholic funeral.

Angelo Roncalli was Apostolic Nuncio to Bulgaria from 1925 to 1935. He helped arrange the wedding between Tsar Boris III and Princess Giovanna. After the Orthodox wedding in Sofia he helped Tsaritsa Ioanna, because The Vatican was angry with her. I do not know if they were angry because of a simple wedding or maybe even conversion. Angelo Roncalli was a family friend to the Bulgarian Royal family. Angelo Roncalli would also later become Pope John XXIII.



See my article, A Bride for Boris, in the June 2005 issue of Royalty Digest.   Ferdinand was exommunicated from the Catholic church because of his decision to have his eldest son, Boris rebaptised into the Orthodox church.  He had "promised" the Pope at the time of his marriage to the very Catholic Princess Marie Louise of Parma that the children of their marriage would be RC.  Marie Louise was not thrilled to say the least when this happened ... The other children were raised Catholic.

Boris and Giovanna did not suffer the same sort of wrath from the Catholic church ... Boris had paid lipservice to Rome, about the children of the marriage,  but when Marie Louise was born in 1933, she was baptised in the Orthodox church.  Boris could not be excommunicated, and Givoanna was not excommunicated.  She knew that the children had to be Orthodox.  It was never an issue for her.  But she herself retained to Catholic faith.

Even if she remained Catholic, she believed equally in both the Catholic and the Orthodox religion. Like I said, Ioanna herself build an Orthodox Church in her home. The name of this Church was Saint Ivan of Rila. There were regular masses held by Orthodox Priests in the Church and attended by Ioanna. The Church was not Catholic and you can see the pictures from this Church on the link I posted.

Simeon II have said that his mother wanted to be buried in Bulgaria next to her husband. However, since the body of Boris III was never found Ioanna was buried in Italy.

One need not be Orthodox to attend an Orthodox liturgy, and likewise, one need not be Roman Catholic to attend a Roman Catholic mass.

I'm sure she was interested in Orthodoxy, and new enough about it, to incorporate a part of Bulgaria in her life, but we know, as already stated, that she remained Catholic.

I think all of the Bulgarian consorts kept their original religion.

Princess Maria Luisa was Catholic. There was just one wedding between Ferdinand I and Maria Luisa, and it was Catholic. When she died she was buried in the Catholic Cathedral in Plovdiv. Pope John Paul II gave mass in this same Cathedral in 2002.

Tsaritsa Eleonora was Protestant. When she married Ferdinand I there were two weddings. One wedding was Catholic because of Ferdinand I and the other wedding was Protestant because of Eleonora. When she died Eleonora was buried in an Orthodox Cemetery next to Boyana Church. Eleonora loved that church and her final wish was to be buried there.

Tsaritsa Ioanna was Catholic. When she married Boris III there were two weddings. One wedding was Catholic because of Ioanna and the other wedding was Orthodox because of Boris III. When she died she wish to be buried next to her husband if his body was found. Because it was not she was buried in Assisi, Italy.

Tsaritsa Margarita is Catholic. When she married Simeon II there were three weddings. One wedding was Catholic because of Margarita, another wedding was Orthodox because of Simeon II and the third wedding was civil.

I understand that she didn't convert, but not because she was Catholic or even because she was Italian... other Catholics HAVE converted throughout history, haven't they? I just wondered... Will she be interred in Bulgaria or is she to remain in Assisi?

The point is that she was a SABAUDIAN Princess and no Princess of this House ever converted or changed religion. Princess Giovanna wouldn't have obtained the permission and moreoever she married in 1930 one year after the Concordato with the Catholic Church of Rome.

You are right, Tsaritsa Ioanna was most likely Catholic until the day she died. However, even if Princess Giovanna was not officially baptized into the Orthodox religion, it does not mean that she did not practiced it. Tsaritsa Ioanna was married to Boris III who was an Orthodox and spend 16 years in Bulgaria. Her children were also Orthodox. In addition, she did have an Orthodox Chapel build next to her home in Portugal where she attended regular services.

I think she was surely fascinated by the richness of the Orthodox Church, and who wouldn't be?
In any case Catholic or Orthodox doesn't mean much. She was just a Christian who had been baptized in the Church of Rome and who was not asked to convert.

She was devoted to the Pope and to Saints who belong traditionally to the Santa Romana Chiesa, but I am sure she had to chance to know the Orthodox Saints and appreciate them and their particular message.

Well, the name of the Orthodox Church Tsaritsa Ioanna build in Portugal was Saint Ivan of Rila. Saint Ivan of Rila was a Bulgarian who lived from 876 to 946. He is a Saint for the Bulgarians. However, he was also proclaimed Saint of the Roman Catholic Church by one of the Popes.

Re Saint John of Rila:
"Papal Address at Orthodox Monastery of St. John of Rila

RILA, Bulgaria, MAY 26, 2002 (Zenit.org).- Here is a translation of the address John Paul II delivered Saturday morning when he visited the Orthodox Monastery of St. John of Rila, considered the spiritual heart of Bulgaria...
'In the course of my visit to Bulgaria, I wanted to make this pilgrimage to Rila to venerate the relics of the holy monk John and to express gratitude and affection to all of you: "We give thanks to God always for you all, constantly mentioning you in our prayers, remembering before our God and Father your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ" (1 Thes 1:2-3)...
Blessed John of Rila -- whom I arranged to have depicted along with other holy men and women of East and West in the mosaic of the Redemptoris Mater Chapel in the Apostolic Palace, and to whom this Monastery bears enduring witness -- when he heard Jesus words calling him to renounce all his possessions and give them to the poor (cf. Mk 10:21), left everything for the precious pearl of the Gospel, and placed himself under the tutelage of holy ascetics in order to learn the art of spiritual combat...'

I read something interesting about Tsar Boris III and Tsaritsa Ioanna.

Tsar Boris III met Princess Giovanna for a first time in 1927 while he was traveling across Europe with his brother Prince Kyril. Tsaritsa Ioanna remembers that back then the Bulgarian monarch did not indicate in any way that he was interested in the Italian Princess. The proposal for marriage was made later through Prince Kyril and Princess Mafalda. The second time Tsar Boris III met Princess Giovanna was on January 8, 1930 when they both attended the wedding of Crown Prince Umberto and the Belgian Princess Maria Jose.

The troubles came when the religion of the future children had to be decided. The Roman Catholic Church wanted Tsar Boris III to sign a document that all the children will be Catholic. However, the Tsar said that he can not do anything like that and he can just give them his word. The Bulgarian Orthodox Church suggested that the boys will be Orthodox and the girls will be Catholic. The negotiations were so intense that at the end the Bulgarian Church agreed for only the hair to the throne to be Orthodox and all other children Catholics.

Tsar Boris III was very upset with all this and he even suspended the negations. The Tsar declared that if he do not marry Giovanna he would stay bachelor and not marry anyone else. The Princess on the other hand declared that if she does not marry Boris she will become a nun and go into a Monastery. However, at the end everything turned fine.

There were two weddings. Princess Giovanna wanted to marry in Assisi. And so on October 25, 1930, Tsar Boris III of Bulgaria married Princess Giovanna of Italy in Assisi. They left Italy on the most luxurious Bulgarian liner of the time Tsar Ferdinand I. The first time the new Tsaritsa set foot on Bulgarian soil in the city of Burgas. The second wedding was in the Saint Alexander Nevski Cathedral. The wedding was an Orthodox and during this wedding Tsaritsa Giovanna became Tsaritsa Ioanna. This was the Bulgarian name she accepted.

If she did not converted to the Orthodox Christianity at least she paid respect to it as seen in this picture.


After all her mother had been an Orthodox Princess.

A couple of years ago I read in a Bulgarian newspaper that the Bulgarian National Television (BNT) was filming a movie about Tsar Boris III. I am not sure if it was a TV movie or TV mini-series. Can someone help me and tell me more about it. What was the name and when did it air?

Thank you very much!

"Little Boris is sick
February 26, 1901

In her column in the Chicago Daily Tribune, the Marquise de Fontenoy writes: "Poor little Prince Boris, son and heir of Ferdinand of Bulgaria has been stricken with typhoid fever at Philipopolis, and being a delicate child there are considerable apprehensions as to his recovery. In the event of succumbing to this malady, to which old world royalty seems to be so particularly prone, his younger brother, Cyril, now six years old, would become heir apparent."
The Marquise further notes that Prince Cyril is Roman Catholic, but according to constitutional requirements, the young prince would be required to convert to the Orthodox faith.
This action would certainly be controversial, as King Ferdinand was excommunicated from the Roman Catholic church after he had Prince Boris rebaptized, according to the rights of the Orthodox church. Ferdinand's wife, Princess Marie Louise of Bourbon Parma, a "devout and narrow-minded Roman Catholic," believed that her eldest son's "ernst salvation had been forfeited" when he joined the Orthodox church. She fled the marital home, but was persuaded to return to Bulgaria by the Pope, as he reminded her of her marital duty, and her duty to her other three children, who were being raised as Roman Catholics. The Marquise has suggested that Marie Louise pleaded with her husband to abdicate "rather than imperil the child's hereafter," as she "devoted her energies to quietly instilling Catholic teachings" in young Boris' mind.
In order to provide the young prince with a more Bulgarian and Orthodox, education, Boris' education was turned over to Russian governesses and Orthodox priests, "who watched with jealous care to prevent the unhappy mother from exercising in any way her influence on the little boy."

Little Bulgarian princess baptised into the Orthodox faith
January 15, 1933

Queen Elena of Italy arrived in Sofia this evening to attend the Roman Catholic baptism of her granddaughter. The baptism, according to the rites of the Roman Catholic church, was to have taken place later this week. Much to the queen's surprise -- and the surprise of many others -- the little princess, only forty-eight hours old, had been hurriedly baptised earlier in the day into the Orthodox faith.
The princess, the first child of King Boris and Queen Giovanna, has been named Marie Louise, after Boris's devoutly Roman Catholic mother, Princess Marie Louise of Bourbon-Parma.
There is no doubt that this baptism will cause great consternation at the Vatican, as Boris had agreed to raise his children Catholic. This agreement was a condition for approval of his marriage to Princess Giovanna of Savoy by the Pope. Pius would not allow Giovanna, a Roman Catholic, to marry Boris in an Orthodox service.
Alexander Malinoff, who is president of Bulgaria's parliament, was named as Marie Louise's godfather, and he held her during the ceremony.
Members of the court and the government were present for the baptism, as well as the king and queen. Later in the day, the Papal representative, Msgr Roncalli, visited the Bulgarian premier, and made an official protest against the Orthodox baptism.


It's a girl for Giovanna and Boris
January 13, 1933

Queen Giovanna of Bulgaria gave birth to a daughter at 9:30 this morning in Sofia. Both mother and baby are doing well, according to official reports. At 10:30, a twenty-one gun salute announced the birth of a princess. At the first shot, school teachers suspended classes, and a national holiday was proclaimed. "As if by magic flags appeared in the windows," and within an hour "the streets outside the palace were filled with cheering crowds."
Although a male heir was hoped for, the birth of a princess "postpones the political difficulties that would have arisen," if the queen had given birth to a son. There is now nothing to prevent the implementation of an agreement between King Boris III and Pope Pius. When the king married the Princess Giovanna of Savoy in 1930, he agreed that their children would be raised as Roman Catholics. Without this agreement, the Pope would not have permitted Giovanna to marry in the Catholic church.
A birth of a son would have made the agreement difficult to maintain as the Bulgarian constitution requires that the eldest son be raised Orthodox.
King Boris is a member of the Orthodox church.
The yet unnamed Princess will be raised as a Roman Catholic.
The National Holiday will continue for the next two days.

January 7, 1933

Bulgarians await "with the deepest interest" the birth of an heir to Queen Giovanna. She is attended daily by physicians at the royal palace in Sofia. This will be the first child for King Boris III and Queen Giovanna.

Well the good think is that except pictures if i search around i always find some new photo of Tsar Boris a pity some are not opening or to small..and my collection is growing....around 500 pictures i have only of Tsar Boris and his family...Ferdinand and the others like House of Savoia is kind of big collections too.

Personaly i adore each picture like that one of Boris(you can see Prince Cyril on the left).... i adore the ruler at all (and so glad that i can wear with me original formal photo of him belonged to my grandmother born 1932)

Yes sure it's lovely one:

To Miss Raina Grigorcheva str: Paisii 86,Sofia
"Dear Rainichka,
With this letter i'm coming to congratulate you and hope you are in good health.Raine i'm good.Tell your mother not fight with those kiradjii ( i don't know how to translate it i know what it means but...) If they don't give money when i come i will speak with your mother not to take money from the Bank in Sofia.I'm sending around 500 leva.And Raina write me more often.Greet mother and uncles."


But i believe they just used the postcard i don't think it's Cyril  and Ferdinand wanted from them to write much more clearer.

Thank you very much for the translation!

I have already seen that one many times but it's always beautiful to see it, since it's my favorite family photo, I didn't know the name of the photographer.
Do you have more information about that photographer?...I tried to find biographical informations about him but I haven't found nothing...

Post by: Royal Bulgaria on September 27, 2009, 12:53:45 PM
Yes it is...

Well it was World war after all..... i was thinking alot on this what would have been if Bulgaria was on the side of Russia.....again comming to the same conclusion that the death of Tsar Boris was surely.If he didn't die from "his own" sickness he would have been executed or send in exile like his father... But almost 98% sure he would have been executed and accused in High treason because of the politic he had and of the mistakes he made...And i think he knew this... So i believe that he gave his life for Bulgaria....And wore modestly his crown of thorns.

I don't think that he killed himself, although from what I read, some people believe that it was suicide, I'm more inclined to believe that he was killed by a Nazi conspiracy, however it will remain a mistery...

Those are not new for me but i have them in much better quality
The first is taken in San Rossore in 1931 on Boris's nameday(some are saying it's taken on their engagment but it's impossible since it was  reported  on 3th October and Boris was in Bulgaria then and they communicated by letters and phone,one of the conversation she was saying to him "If you don't come sooner i will run away from here and come to you" then he replayed ''Don't do it i'm comming" and week later he was there

Thank you for your scan with an incredible quality. You seem to have many documents on the royal family of Bulgaria. What books or biographies about Boris and Joana can you advise who wants to better know them ? Thank you in advance.
Title: Re: Tzar Boris III of Bulgaria and his family
Post by: Royal Bulgaria on October 06, 2009, 03:43:31 PM
You are maybe the first one which admire my interest for the Bulgarian Royal Family...
I advise the book which i know it has English translation "Crown of Thorns" it's about Tsar Boris in Generaly but you can learn new things about his siblings and friends...Amazingly wrote one by a man who knew Tsar Boris....
Other one which i don't know is there English translation i know for Spanish and Italian one is Queen Ioanna (Giovanna)'s Memories wrote by the queen....Those are the only memories wrote about the Bulgarian Royal family from a member... I believe she had a diary... Boris never had one because how the author of the book explained "He was busy with state work" It's absolutely perfect wrote one nothing that she is not a writer....
I have 4 books for now....
The other's two are :
One translated from Italian about the Queen of Mercy Ioanna and her life...but there are used her memories so i learned something new from there also....but what pictures in such HIGH quality WHOLE TREASURE.... i scanned them all and the one of Boris's name day is from there...
The last one is for now available only on Bulgarian....it's huge 800 pages and it's called "Tsar Boris's III The Palace and the Secret Cabinet" if you want to learn all about the palaces,the politic all ministers and some funny and lovely stories of Boris's meetings and such this is the perfect book..... And it was the first one i got...kind of expensive but i dreamed about it...and there i found my first rare pictures....Thats how i started my collection of documentries.....
In future i have one work..... i want somehow to get in personal to the Republic's archives because Ioanna said that there is the place where we can find how Tsar Boris really died and who poisoned him...

Irina of Russia, Thank you for your detailed response. I appreciate the fact that you has taken so long to give me all this information. I am reassured because I see books on Boris III and his family are not as rare as I thought.

I therefore have great chances to find at least one on a site selling books by mail. I think starting with a book about Joanna or Boris. I also find a biography of Tsar Ferdinand Ier, father of Boris. Although he was a character very decried at his time and he remains so today, I think that this Sovereign had a personality very rich and complex and had a great life that deserve to be known.

Thank you again for your guidance will be very useful in my future research.

Best regards.

You are most welcome

When i first started researching about him and his siblings i also thought that i will never be able to find books or photos.... And how many wonderful ones there are....most of them lost in time....

Ferdinand from my point of view was very despotic human.... As ruler he gave much to Bulgaria,thanks to him now Sofia looks like a capital city and not a village but his bad sides are throwing across the good ones.... Ferdinand as human was not good one,as father he rised his children,educated them very HIGH like he was but left in them only fear from him...I've read how he yell on the boys(Knyaz Boris and Cyrill)And from political side he is more terrible.... Because of him Bulgaria was involved in the World War and when Germany lost it there were set above us reparations-The pact,signed in Paris on 27th November 1919, i don't remember the English translation of the pact...on Bulgarian is "Ньойски договор" because of it later Tsar Boris was never full ruler....

Some from my collection

I totally agree with you : Ferdinand had many defects. But it is always interesting to learn more about a man even detestable. This does not mean that I like but I could really give me an opinion on him. To me, among all the royals, I prefer those who have always shown great humanity and dignity in all circumstances.

Thank you for your photos, wonderful as usual.
Title: Re: Tzar Boris III of Bulgaria and his family
Post by: Royal Bulgaria on October 07, 2009, 03:00:33 PM
Yes i agree completly... Actually in my eyes Tsar Boris III was such human.... As i said many times he was a man which i respect with all my personality...he ofcourse had bad sides as all people and surely made mistakes but when someone is telling me his name in my head i always remember him with good.... About Ferdinand i have other reason not like to him...I'm Bulgarian and one morning when i set on the computer my father called me and told me to read one newspaper and there was a quote of Ferdinand's advices to his son,the future Tsar and the thing which offended me was this that he said "The Bulgarian people are like the cows,they work they serve and you must milk them until the end (...) You will see that the Bulgarian human is the one which will always crawl in your legs" ... And i believe he said it ...it was found in the archives....

You are most welcome for the photos

This was said by ferdinand on the Bulgarian people is unworthy of a sovereign. To my eyes, a head of state, and especially a king worthy of the name, can not say and does not even think such a thing to his people. These words, though he made the really, do him no credit.

Regarding the photos, I have some of the royal family of Bulgaria from various books and magazines on European royal families in general. But I'm afraid you've already posted. I must first make sure their real novelty before to scan and to post them.

Yes i have but if you are speaking after her marriage you should call her Ioanna as all Europe and other countries did

Well, since I'm Italian for me it comes natural to call her with her Italian name Giovanna, please note, not because I dislike how she was called after the marriage, but just because as I said, it comes more natural for me to call her with her Italian name, it's just a question of language, that's all...but if you are saying that there is a rule that says that I have to call her Ioanna, it will be a pleasure for me to follow that rule.  ;)

Thank you very much for the photos!

Post by: Royal Bulgaria on October 13, 2009, 02:03:22 PM
Why rule?I'm saying the name which she accepted with her marriage... and how here you won't find orphanage or hospital with her maidenish name... or streets...
It's just the Bulgarian version of the name ....On books on my language i find it wrote for example "Йоанна Българска,Царицата на милосърдието" in direct translate it is "Ioanna the Bulgarian,The Queen of Charity"

I also make mistake sometimes and call her Giovanna when she was already married for Boris.

Actually, she used Ioanna in Bulgaria as her official name, but she was always known as Giovanna - and even signed as Giovanna.

Yes i have but if you are speaking after her marriage you should call her Ioanna as all Europe and other countries did

With Ioanna's siblings 1933 From left to right standing upTsar Boris,Umberto of Savoia,Philip of Hesse,Carlo Calvi Di Bergolo,Sitting ones:
Maria Di Savoia,Ioanna,Maria Jose,Mafalda and Yolanda

The book is lovely - and was published in English and in Bulgarian

I found new book (it's album gift for Simeon's 70th birthday) and i really want to buy it because there are photos never seen and published before...

One from my personal archive:
Queen Ioanna with nurses from БЧК in 1937...Someone asked was she pregnant here with Simeon? I think this is after she gave birth to him...

Sorry but i've seen letters by her in a book where were signed with Ioanna.... Maybe in those for Italy she signed with Giovanna...

Yes, probably she signed with Giovanna in her letters for her relatives in Italy.

That's why I always confuse the wedding day in Assisi to the coronation day in Sofia, I'm also curious to know if there were a second wedding ceremony there in Sofia too...?
Title: Re: Tzar Boris III of Bulgaria and his family
Post by: Royal Bulgaria on October 21, 2009, 09:57:08 AM
Yes there aren't much pictures with Eudoxia in Asissi but i must look around....

Well everywhere it's said and named pictures as "Wedding solemnities in Sofia" or on Bulgarian "Сватбени тържества в София"
Like here(one of my favourite pictures):
(http://i913.photobucket.com/albums/ac333/Ioanna_Of_Bulgaria/th_Bulgarien.jpg) (http://i913.photobucket.com/albums/ac333/Ioanna_Of_Bulgaria/Bulgarien.jpg) (http://i913.photobucket.com/albums/ac333/Ioanna_Of_Bulgaria/th_wedding.jpg) (http://i913.photobucket.com/albums/ac333/Ioanna_Of_Bulgaria/wedding.jpg)

By the queen's dress i recognize which "wedding" was in Asissi or in Aleksandur Neevski.About your question under this picture it's wrote:
(http://i913.photobucket.com/albums/ac333/Ioanna_Of_Bulgaria/th_qa456.jpg) (http://i913.photobucket.com/albums/ac333/Ioanna_Of_Bulgaria/qa456.jpg)

"Infront of the temple Aleksandur Neevski for the blessing of the royal couple" So it's coronation more then a wedding because they were blessed and she became Queen and accepted the Bulgarian version of the name Ioanna and thats how she remained in history......

I understand, thank you for the explanation.

Unfortunately it's very difficult to find photos of the wedding in Assisi (although I'm in Italy), I have seen just some, that were posted here in this topic and a video (you know which video I mean since I descovered it thanks to you), but probably you had much more fortune than me.

I have a copy of the 1940 edition of John Gunther's Inside Europe, which is a survey of European rulers and statesmen by an American journalist. The 1940 edition is essentially a reprint of the original 1936 edition, and one of the interesting things about it is that it deals with Hitler, Mussolini etc as they were viewed by contemporaries before WW2.

As I remember, Mr Gunther writes quite affectionately of King Boris, stressing his unpretentious nature and affection for his people. He notes that Alexander of Yugoslavia came on a visit, and was most discomforted when Boris took him for a walk around Sofia without any bodyguards, saying, 'I don't need any. The Bulgarian people are my bodyguards.'

I think it pretty well certain that if Boris had survived until the Communist takeover he would have been killed by them - that, after all, is what happened to his brother Kyril.
Title: Re: Tzar Boris III of Bulgaria and his family
Post by: Royal Bulgaria on October 21, 2009, 10:31:21 AM
Yes it's true and i have read about this with Alexander of Yugoslavia....

And i always say that i'm pretty sure if Boris have not died "from his own sickness" as it was said he would have been send to death because of his politic and other reasons...
Title: Re: Tzar Boris III of Bulgaria and his family
Post by: Kalafrana on October 22, 2009, 04:16:42 AM
I had a look last night at my Inside Europe and, as I thought, Boris comes out rather well as a man, though Gunther describes him as 'a doubter rather than a man of action' (he does also say that Boris faced an extremely difficult political situation). Boris's personal life was modest to the point of frugality, he was a devoted husband and father (could be seen pushing his baby daughter round the palace gardens in her pram!), and liked to get out among the people and chat to them. Gunther describes him as 'the worst-dressed king in Europe' but that was because he tried to help the local economy by getting all his clothes made in Sofia ('and Sofia is not exactly Saville Row').

Apparently, he also took Carol of Romania around Sofia without any bodyguards.

Boris is best known in Britain for his enthusiasm for driving trains (something viewed by the British as a pleasant eccentricity).

Boris seems to have been a man of nice simple tastes.

The remark about Sofia tailoring is rather typical of Gunther - he's not snide but has a definite sense of humour.

Thank you for these new pictures are all new to me !

I love the photo of Joana in traditional Bulgarian dress which suits her beautifully. This sovereign, the most beautiful daughter of Victor Emmanuel III as my opinion, had a lot of charm and seduction.

Her daughter Marie Luise, who physically resembled both parents, was equally attractive.

Many thanks for some interesting pictures. One thing I like about Boris and Giovanna is that they didn't overdress their children - Simeon and Maria Luisa look tidy but are not covered in frills and flounces!

Did Giovanna continue playing the cello after her marriage?

Post by: Royal Bulgaria on October 26, 2009, 04:58:57 AM
You are welcome

Yes i agree..they were dressed modestly

And yes she continued playing as she wrote in her memories "Even after my marriage my love for the cello never died and when always when i had time i set and played"

And her children said it also.... In the palace there was the piano of Ioanna... Simeon said she played the piano very good...

Nice to hear about Giovanna's music.

John Gunther also says that Boris was a considerate husband, in that when he and Giovanna were first married they didn't go out much, as he wanted to give her time to settle down in Bulgaria and learn the language first.

I imagine most wives complain at some stage that their husbands are too busy to spend time with the children. I'll have to ask my father whether my mother, now dead, ever said that of him, when he had a demanding job which took him away a good deal, spent weekends as a gliding instructor, and many evenings attending night school and  studying for exams!

The last ones i've seen in Casa Savoia thread ,the one of Giovanna in carriage i'm little doubting it's Giovanna more like Yolanda.... just the face...


Indeed, I posted the last pictures of giovanna in this thread few months ago.

Regarding the photo in the small carriage, the caption says "Principessa Giovanna" but the question is actually enabled.

Thank you for all your news photos stunning !

I'm never seen those before, very beautiful photos.

How was Boris III's relation with religion?, I read many times that he was a deeply religious person, but I'd like to know some anecdotes.

Also, sorry if I'm going off topic, but I'm curious to know something about the Vodosvet...is this an Orthodox festivity, right?...
Title: Re: Tzar Boris III of Bulgaria and his family
Post by: Royal Bulgaria on November 03, 2009, 10:16:20 AM
Yes he was deep religious.... really standing on his words and reconstruct many churches...

This is festival celebrated in April or March must check but its a ritual with holy water...for health and such.... A festival of the Church...here in Bulgaria....The name comes from "water" on Bulgarian "вода" and the other word is "Holy" -Светен.... But on the old Bulgarian those two words are joined in one "Водосвет"

Forgot to say it's celebrated by the Orthodox believers...i don't know much about it because i'm Catholic believer...

These are indeed rare to me, I have seen only the one of Prince Boris from e-bay, but the version that I have seen was croppen and very small, I really like the one on mount Rila (I'm going to search it on the geographical map, is it far from Sofia?).

Lovely to see how enthusiastic the Bulgarian people were. And nice pictures of Boris and daughter.

I wonder whether there was the same enthusiasm in Britain at the birth of Edward VII (most recent person who was heir apparent at birth, or, indeed, the birth of Prince Charles).

I must ask my father (who was 20 at the time) what he remembers of the birth of Prince Charles. I imagine the public were pleased (Princess Elizabeth was very popular and only recently married to the handsome and dashing young Duke of Edinburgh!), but I would think that there was less exuberance and certainly no torchlit processions of firemen! In those days royal births were announced by means of a notice pinned to the railings of Buckingham Palace, and neither the child nor the mother was seen until the baptism. Only then was the child's name announced. Apparently, when the current Duke of York was born in 1960, his baptism took place unusually late, leading to rumours that there was something wrong with him.

Тhose are new to me but the one which you labeled Ioanna and Maria Luisa but isn't this Simeon... because the picture taken the same day is labeled as Simeon with Ioanna and Boris...

This photo is well commented : " First portrait of Princess Marie-Louise's lap of her mother, the daughter of Bulgarian King Boris III and Queen Joanna".

But it may be a mistake. Don't know.

Well i think there is mistake because i know this one labeled CIRCA 1937: Boris III (1894-1943), king of Bulgaria with his wife Jeanne of Savoie (girl of king Victor - Emmanuel III of Italy) and their son, future czar, Simeon II (born in 1937). RV-932224. (Photo by Harlingue/Roger Viollet/)

About the one of Eudoxia and Ioanna they look similiar because of the hairstyle and hats. i believe...

The others are his Coburg-Austrian relatives. The older woman is Klothilde, Archduchess of Austria, sister of Ferdinand. The younger one is her daughter Elisabeth. The two men at back are Archduke Josef, spouse of Klothilde, and his son Archduke Josef Karl.

Irina of Russia, according to the legend of my photo - which says nothing about the other child - Boris is the boy standing rather than sitting on the chair. But you seem to say otherwise. I do not know who to believe.

Ok, Irina of Russia, your argument seems very clear. No doubt the child on the chair is Cyril.

It is unfortunate that pictures like mine are described as unreliable. This should lead many people who do not necessarily know all the royals in error. I have, for example, some books speak primarily of royalty, but is incredibly wrong in their description of people. This makes it unfortunately unreliable sources for dilettantes.

Regarding the photograph on Post 198, presumably Boris is the boy in the middle of the back row, Kirill the boy on the right, and Ferdinand the man in front. But who are the other four people?

Ann

The others are his Coburg-Austrian relatives. The older woman is Klothilde, Archduchess of Austria, sister of Ferdinand. The younger one is her daughter Elisabeth. The two men at back are Archduke Josef, spouse of Klothilde, and his son Archduke Josef Karl.

Ahm, I mixed up Prince Philipp of Coburg, elder brother of Ferdinand, and old Archduke Josef. Sorry. The old bearded man is Prince Philipp of Coburg.

Sorry for the repetition. You have already posted so many photos on boris and his family it is difficult to find truly new. Too hard to always be vigilant about what has been posted before or not especially when the thread is 15 or 16 pages. But I tried to be more careful next time.

Boris seems to have been very much a family man, not only devoted to his wife and children, but fond of his brother and sisters as well.

I wonder whether losing their mother at a very early age produced a particular closeness between Boris and his siblings.

Ann

Ofcourse that it's because of the lost of their mother... They only had their despotic father and later found loving step mother...but at this time Boris  was already 15 years old and he did not spend much time with her ...She became devoted to Ferdinand's daughters-Eudoxia and Nadejda.

But i must say that Boris was not close with his father... He feared him, and only got respect ... "strong love" is far from what it really was.
Even when Boris was 30 years old once he said after returning from Coburg: "If i don't have ulcer because of the Monarch,then it will be good" . Boris never spoke infront of the Parlament for the returning of Ferdinand to Bulgaria. He wanted to keep him away.

Thank you KarlandZita for the one of Boris,i wanted to tell you yesterday but i did not had time : )
Katenka lovely quality i think you meant "Fhrer" as you (maybe)  know the umlaut is important and also the big letter for titles and substantives or otherwise it's changing the whole meaning. :) Again Thank you.

Post by: Royal Bulgaria on June 14, 2010, 09:34:28 AM
Well in this case "fuhrer" wrote like this without this ""(umlaut) doesn't have meaning... ofcourse it will be close to the mind of someone who is interested in history.
Yes exactly like "schn" and ofcourse with umlaut the pronunciation is different then the normal "o" .

P:S schn means beautiful and schon means already.

i don t know how to put those dots with my keyboard =(.

Wikipedia to the rescue:
In Microsoft Windows, one can hold alt while pressing 0220 or 154 on the numeric keypad (when Num Lock is on) as a shortcut to and hold alt while pressing 0252 or 129 as a shortcut to .
Some local keyboard layouts, especially German and Swiss German layouts, feature a separate key for the letter ''. On Swiss French layout the '' can be entered by typing '' while holding down the shift key. On US International layout Windows users can access the acute accent letter '' by holding down the "AltGR" key whilst typing the 'Y' key on the keyboard.
In Mac OS, one can hold option (alt) while pressing u to obtain the dots and then u again (or any other desired vowel that shall receive the dots) to place it under the dots.
The Unicode code point for is U+00FC. (252) is U+00DC. (220)

The last means that in Linux-based operative systems, like Ubuntu which I use, you can hold down Ctrl and Shift and type UFC and it gives you .

But my Norwegian keyboard is so wisely equipped that I have a separate key which puts the diacritics on not just , , , , and .....
Quote
Funny how a word can change its meaning without the umlaut.
.....but also on , so that I can make the equally vital distinction between ano and ao!

It's also totally accepted to write words with umlauts, like Fhrer, as Fuehrer. Because the dots in the umlaut did actually originally represent a small superscripted e, in the same way as the tilde in originally is a small n.

Wonderful work and fantastic pictures, Royal bulgaria !!! Thank you very much for sharing with us.

Funny to see the children display an air of studious in their study with their teachers. I wonder which of the two boys was the most studious ?
Title: Re: Tzar Boris III of Bulgaria and his family
Post by: Royal Bulgaria on July 14, 2010, 02:20:56 PM
You are welcome :)
I can answer to your question.Most studious was Boris.Bo was extraordinarily intelligent and most conscientious in his work. Kyril (Kiki) was more sociable and naughty boy ,but lazy as student. The most "active" mind from all of the children was Eudoxia (Koka) .She was a girl with unusual strong character and spitfire temperament like her father.Nadejda (May or Miki) was a pleasant girl and shy one.

28th August 1943.One day which remained forever in the pages of history.Today is anniversary of Tsar Boris III's death!
 Tsar Boris died suddenly after a meeting with Hitler and there have been speculations that he was actually poisoned by Hitler, who wanted a more obedient Bulgaria. So, because of His Majesty's insistence, Bulgarian soldiers did not fight in the War. Bulgaria had national ideals: the returning of Bulgarian territories, such as present-day Macedonia and part of the present-day Greek Macedonia. These territories were invaded by the Germans and were given to the Bulgarian ally for formal administration. But the King himself, Bulgarian intellectuals, the Orthodox Church and the general public resisted strongly Hitler's demand that all Bulgarian Jews be deported to the death camps in Poland. Bulgarian Jews were saved from the Holocaust and almost all of them regard the King as their savior.

I speak for myself and today i will go and burn one candle for our ruler- The Unique Tsar -Boris Turnovski!

Thank you. My images come from old newspapers that I have. I love the picture of Bulgarian and Yugoslav rulers together. It was probably taken during the visit of the rulers of Yugoslavia in Sofia in 1934, shortly before the assassination of King Alexander in Marseille.

This looks like a WW1 picture published in Germany - maybe as part of a spread on Germany's allies.

Musing on a different topic. Boris was slow to marry - he was 36 when he married Giovanna - and Kirill never married at all, though Boris was a king and Kirill the only heir until Boris had children. What effect did having a notoriously bisexual father have on them? Not suggesting that either was homosexual, however.

Does anyone have that one in better quality? It's very cute- the children with newborn Nadejda.

Some interesting pictures. Unfortunately, each time I clicked on one, I not only got the picture but some others  showing bodybuilders with captions such as 'Want to increase your muscle mass?'!!!

Was the picture in the gondola taken around the time of Boris and Giovanna's wedding?

Strange. I'm using 2 pcs and on neither I see such stuff. Next time I'll go with the good old Tinypic. Sorry for the inconvenience.

It's from 1926.

Perhaps it's my browser.

Boris and Giovanna married in 1929 so presumably they knew one another for quite a long time beforehand. His mother was a Bourbon-Parma, so was he perhaps related to Giovanna?

I just remembered that I'm using addblockers :-).

According to Stephane Groueff, Boris and Giovanna first met in September 1927. That picture is from Boris' first trip abroad as tsar \1926\.

I think it could be his sister Eudoxia.

That sounds realistic. They are obviously not a courting couple from the body language, but I believe that Boris was on good terms with his brother and sisters.

According the bulgarian archives, its Eudoxia.

Great pictures,guys. The woman next to Boris is Eudoxia for sure. Is it confirmed that the photo was taken circa 1926?

Well, the description of the photo says so. :-)

Quote
Снимка на цар Борис ІІІ и княгиня Евдокия с гондола по каналите на Венеция по време на посещението им там през 1926 г.
Албумът е подарен от подполковник Първан Драганов, флигеладютант на цар Борис ІІІ, на 3 окт. 1926 г. в памет от първото пътуване на царя в чужбина.

And who is the lady on the right, holding Simeon? Is she Giovanna's mother, or perhaps Boris's stepmother?
