Comment:Stefan Stambolov (1854 - 1895) was a Bulgarian politician, a deputy at the Bulgarian Founding Assembly of 1879, Vice Chairman and later Chairman of the Bulgarian Parliament. In 1886 Stambolov became Regent until the proclamation of Ferdinand of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha as Knyaz of the autonomous Principality of Bulgaria in 1887. He was also Prime Minister for seven years (1887 - 1894). Stambolov was assassinated in July 1895. Photographs VASE.00260 and VASE.00261 are identical. They were probably taken earlier (in 1878 or 1879) in Belgrade or in Sofia by Anastas Karastoyanov and later mounted on cardboard by Anastas's son Dimitar Karastoyanov.
