Andrey Toshev.jpg

Andrey Slavov Toshev (Bulgarian: Андрей Славов Тошев) (16 April 1867, Stara Zagora - 10 January 1944) was Prime Minister of Bulgaria in 1935. He was also a Bulgarian scientist and a diplomat.

Appointed by Tsar Boris III, Toshev was chosen for his unflinching loyalty in the uncertainty following the military coup of Zveno in 1934. He headed a purely civilian cabinet after a period of military rule and was in effect a puppet of the Tsar.[1] His Premiership proved short-lived when the elections of November 1935 were won by Georgi Kyoseivanov.

Toshev also served in diplomatic roles as the Bulgarian ambassador to Serbia from 1909-1913, in which capacity he helped bring about the formation of the Balkan League, and also as the Bulgarian ambassador to Constantinople from 1913-1914.
