Line of succession to the former Bulgarian throne
The Bulgarian monarchy was abolished in 1946. The last monarch to reign was Tsar Simeon II, who remains head of the former Bulgarian Royal Family. 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.
