Group Description

Accession #3

"After being dethroned and committed to the Tower, this pathetic little nine-day Queen waited a whole year for the hour of her execution. When the headsman came to take her away she murmured with a wan smile: "I knew my cousin Mary had not forgotten me." Then at the last again turning to the executioner: "Do not tremble!..." And she laid her head on the block."

"She won only routine recognition as a competent and assiduous student of environmental law in her native Sofia and made no more than a decent impression in her passage through undemanding further studies abroad. Her appointment as a lecturer in law provided no indication that she was destined for high office. And her time as a journalist on Bulgarian National Radio made little lasting impact on the media. For ten years she laboured discreetly as a legal adviser to the government, in relatively low-profile fields of environmental law, state property, use of natural resources, concessions and agriculture. Her professional contact with European affairs was limited largely to helping align Bulgarian environmental law with EU rules. It was in the retinue of Bulgaria’s former king, Simeon II, that she first came to public attention. Without any conspicuous previous political background, she was a founding member of Simeon II’s liberal National Movement – and won a seat in parliament in June 2001, sharing in the surprise victory that put him into the prime minister’s office."
