Located along the Black Sea to the southeast of the Balkan Peninsula, Bulgaria maintains cordial relations with France, partly due to the French support for the dual candidacy of Bulgaria to the European Union and NATO. First, we will study some important points of Bulgarian history, follow it up with some facts pertaining to the country's major macro-economic data, before concluding with an outline of the Bulgarian foreign policy.
The Bulgarian people originated from the intermingling of the seventh century Bulgars, a tribe from the territory of modern Iran, and the Slavic inhabitants of the Balkan Peninsula. The First Bulgarian Kingdom, loosely uniting these two nations, was founded by Khan Asparoukh in 681. Conversion during the reign of Boris I (852-888) to a common religion, Christianity, allowed the actual merger of the two constituent peoples of the Bulgarian nation.
Bulgaria was subject to the power of Byzantium between 1018 and 1186. Two brothers, Peter I and Ivan Assen, established the Second Bulgarian Kingdom (1186-1393). Kaloyan (1197-1207) was the most famous representative of the dynasty of Assens. The second Bulgarian kingdom collapsed with the passage of the country under Turkish rule in 1393.
