Thanks for the wonderful picture. Such cuties.

These are popular pictures of Marie Louise and Eudoxia, but they are autographed. Found them again at some auction house.

Some pictures from the book "Passions and scandals in royal Bulgaria" by Peter Velichkov, which I read recently. \not great quality as usual \

A new photograph (at least for me) of Maria Louisa and Ferdinand at their engagement.


Maria Louisa at Euxinograd.


The actual photo of Ferdinand and Boris after the Orthodox baptism of the second. I've seen the lithography posted on the forums, but not the photo itself.


A really funny caricature of the baptism. I just love Ferdinand's portrayal in the upper right corner. :-)


This is Boris bathing at the Ohrid lake during the war, July 1917. Though the picture is not offensive, revealing or anything of that sort, he's not wearing clothes. You're warned.

And the last one is postcard special for the 25 year anniversary of Ferdinand on the throne. Very stylish.

Agreed. nothing offensive to be seen. The intimate bits are neatly concealed by Boris's forearm.

Marie Louise was a sad figure...

I wonder about the context for the nude picture of Boris. I see him as being at the lake with a bunch of army pals, and one of the pals took the picture as a joke. Boris has a look on his face as if he's been caught unawares.

Or perhaps it was his brother Kirill.

It looks like some sort of prank to me, too. But it also reminds me of that caught on tape euphoria of the soldiers when they reached the White sea during the first Balkan war \1, 2\. Forgetting for a moment that they are actually on a war. Anyway, in the book there's no info on the picture, it is not even relevant to the story as it's part of the chapter about the royal wedding.

From a documentary about Ferdinand:



They said something interesting about Ferdinand's father, August of Saxe-Coburg and Gotta. Until his death Ferdinand forbade anyone to even mention his father, because he was ashamed that August has spent the last days \years?\ of his life in a psychiatry. I couldn't find more info on that subject online \about August\. Could it be true?

And these are from Maria Luisa's short biography that I bought today.

1895


In the uniform of her second cavalry regiment, 1893


With Ferdinand and princess Clementine at the Ebenthal palace, 1894

Some really nice portraits of Maria Luisa that I haven't seen before:




The source is the newly digitalised Bulgarian state archives \link\.
