Liberation of Bulgaria

The Liberation of Bulgaria is a historical process as a result of the Bulgarian Revival.

A map which shows the territories of the liberated Bulgarian Tributary state in 1878 and its dividing at the same year with adoption of Treaty of Berlin.

The beginning of the process is disputable as a consequence of the dispute over the beginning of the Bulgarian Revival, but it is generally accepted that this was the year 1762 of the writing of ″Istoriya Slavyanobolgarskaya″.

The historical process took on a cultural dimension - a political one in the 1840s and quite clearly after the tomos dated June 29, 1850. After the Crimean War, the armed struggle for independence in various forms began. The culmination of the process is the April Uprising.

It is symbolic that the national holiday of Bulgaria is March 3 or the day of the signing of the Treaty of San Stefano, and it is no coincidence that under the direction of Count Nikolay Pavlovich Ignatyev was signed exactly three centuries or 300 years after the hanging of Michael Kantakouzenos Şeytanoğlu.

Unification and independenceEdit

On 6 September 1885, Eastern Rumelia became part of the Principality of Bulgaria after a bloodless unification, although the principality was a de facto independent nation but de jure vassal nation of the Ottoman Empire until 1908, when Bulgaria proclaimed its declaration of independence.

The 1908 declaration, which signified Bulgaria's break with the Ottoman rule, was actually the second liberation of Bulgaria. After the conquest of the First Bulgarian Empire in 1018, the first liberation of Bulgaria led to the establishment of the Second Bulgarian Empire in the aftermath of the Uprising of Asen and Peter against the Byzantine Empire in 1185.
