Summary/Abstract: As politician and statesman Prof. Alexander Tsankov had occasions for a number of contacts with King Boris III from the end of the First World War to the early forties of the past century. They were particularly frequent during the 1923-1926 period when as Prime Minister Prof. A. Tsankov was the monarch’s foremost adviser. After a vote of censure was passed on his cabinet (January 1926, contacts between the two, though not so frequent, did not cease until the King’s death. The excerpt offered from the unpublished memoirs of Prof. A. Tsankov refers to the time immediately before the death of Boris III. At a chance meeting of the two in Chamkoria (the modern Borovets) in the summer of 1942 besides the greetings usual for such an occasion, a conversation was started which touched on important problems of the day concerning both the country’s political life and the progress of World War Two in which Bulgaria had been involved in early March 1941.
