Konstantin Muraviev

Konstantin Vladov Muraviev (Bulgarian: Константин Владов Муравиев) (5 March 1893 – 31 January 1965) was a leading member of the Agrarian People's Union who briefly served as Prime Minister of Bulgaria near the end of Bulgarian involvement in the Second World War. Muraviev was educated at Robert College of Constantinople, just like Ivan Evstratiev Geshov, Todor Ivanchov, Konstantin Stoilov and many other Bulgarian revolutionaries were.

The nephew of Aleksandar Stamboliyski, he was chosen to appeal to the Western Allies after they had rejected the advances of his predecessor Ivan Ivanov Bagrianov. Muraviev ratified the abolition of all laws against Jews on 5 September and on the 8th he declared war on Nazi Germany. However, his efforts were a failure as, after little more than a week in the job, his government was overthrown by the Fatherland Front coup of 9 September 1944 as the Red Army advanced into the country.[1]

Unlike many of his contemporaries, Muraviev escaped execution after the war and published a book on Bulgarian politics, Sŭbitiya i khora (Събития и хора), in 1963.
