Simeon Borisov von Saxe-Coburg-Gotha (Bulgarian: Симеон Борисов Сакскобургготски, romanized: Simeon Borisov Sakskoburggotski, [simeˈɔn boˈrisof sakskoburˈgɔtski]; born 16 June 1937) is the last heir to the throne of the Kingdom of Bulgaria, who had never served as reigning Tsar of Bulgaria due to his minor age at the time his father Boris III of Bulgaria died (1943) and the fact that monarchy in Bulgaria was abolished (1946). Later, Simeon served as Prime Minister of Republic of Bulgaria from 2001 to 2005. Simeon was a six-year-old minor when the royal authority had been taken to be exercised on his behalf by a regency led by Simeon's uncle Prince Kiril, General Nikola Mihov and the prime minister, Bogdan Filov.
