Troping my country

Tropes about my country, Bulgaria, mostly historical trivia.

I've found out that history is a lot more fun in trope form. However, apparently troping real life too much is against the wiki's rules, and I'm a terrible procrastinator who never finishes things, so I'll just make a list here on my user page and update it whenever I come up with something.

  • Balkanize Me: The Second Empire. The Northwestern province, centered around the city of Vidin, had several seceding rulers, some of them foreign princes. Even after its ruler Michael III Shishman took the throne of the main kingdom centered at Tarnovo, his brother Belaur still tried to secede. When Michael's nephew, Ioan Alexander, inherited the throne, he had to out Belaur, only to split the Vidin province again and give it to his son Ioan Sratsimir while his other heir, Ioan Shishman, got the main part. Around that time, a despot named Dobrotitsa also seceded the eastern part of the country.
  • Dressing as the Enemy: An infamous example. When escaping Byzantine captivity, Tzar Boris II and his brother Roman had disguisedthemselves as Byzantine guards. The Border Crossing ended badly when Bulgarian guards took the bait and really mistook them for Byzantines, killing Boris before Roman could clarify anything. Roman himself survived, but he had been castrated, so the entire male line of the dynasty died with him.
  • Foreign Ruling Class:
    • The First Empire started out as a confederation of Bulgars, Slavs and Vlchs, with Bulgar nobility ruling supreme.
    • Most, if not all, ruling houses of the Second Empire are speculated to be of Cuman descent, nativized and ruling over an already homogenous population of Bulgarians.
    • The Third State, while it was a monarchy, was ruled by Princes and Tzars hailing from the Western European houses of Battenberg and then Saxe-Coburg-Gotha, appointed by the Great Powers.
  • The Maiden Name Debate: The Second Empire was infamous for this. Once all male lines of the ruling dynasty of Asen died out, various other rulers started seeking marriage to Asen women (daughters and granddaughters of the last Asen Tzar to have any progeny) so they could attach the Asen name to themselves and legitimize their claim on the throne.
  • Succession Crisis:
    • The First Empire had one lasting almost a century, with a new Khan every other year.
    • The Second Empire had many of those after the main Asen dynasty died out.
