The TREATY OF BUCHAREST (1886) established that from then on
the Governor of Eastern Rumelia should be the Prince of Bulgaria; however the
union of the two territories was still postponed, Ottoman sovereignty over
Russia had opposed Prince Alexander; yet it did not
recognize Prince Ferdinand; a Russian adventurer, NABOKOV, in the hope of
raising a rebellion against the new dynast, made two incursions into Bulgaria in
1887; in the second he was killed.
