The current Bulgarian royal family is a line of the Kohary branch of the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, which ruled Bulgaria from 1887 to 1946. The last tsar, Simeon II, became Prime Minister of Bulgaria in 2001 and remained in office until 2005. Members of the Royal Family hold the titles Prince (Princess) of Bulgaria and Duke (Duchess) in Saxony, with the style of Royal Highness.[1]
