The Bulgarian monarchy was abolished in 1946.[1] The last monarch to reign was Tsar Simeon II, who remains head of the former Bulgarian Royal Family.[2] The law of succession for the dynasty was constitutionally established as Salic primogeniture: only Orthodox males born of approved marriages and descended in the male-line from the first tsar (king) of the Saxe-Coburg line, Ferdinand I of Bulgaria, by seniority of birth with provision for substitution were eligible to occupy Bulgaria’s throne.[2]

After Simeon II’s deposition those who meet the criteria of that order of succession are enumerated as follows:[2]
