Today we celebrate The union of the Principality of Bulgaria and Eastern Rumelia. On September 5, an uprising was raised in Chirpan, where supporters of the Union with the Principality of Bulgaria established their own government. The Chirpan detachment managed to escape from the city and head north to Plovdiv, but was caught and defeated by a military unit near the village of Kalfata (Union), in which five Chetniks died – Ivan Danchov, Dimitar Yovchev, Petko Zapryanov, Georgi Serbezov and brother-in-law Alexi Hadgioglu. However, the squad managed to pull itself together and join that of the Grokokonars and advance towards Plovdiv together. From Golyamo Konare and Konush, teams headed by Prodan Tishkov – Chardafon and Angel Cholakov set off, which reached the regional center at night and the next day. With the news of the unrest in the region, the East Rumelia authorities, in the person of the chairman of the Standing Committee Ivan Geshov, asked the Russian consul in Plovdiv whether they should announce the Unification themselves. After receiving a negative answer, the government ordered the arrest of the conspirators and concentrated police units in Plovdiv. However, the military does not obey the orders of the director of the militia. On the night of September 6, troops commanded by Major Nikolaev established control over Plovdiv and, without encountering resistance, overthrew the government and Governor-General Gavril Krastevich. A provisional government, which includes representatives of the army and the two southern Bulgarian parties headed by Georgi Stranski, announces a general mobilization of men from 18 to 40 years of age to resist the expected Turkish attack and invites Prince Alexander Battenberg to support the Unification.
Today is the feast of cities Plovdiv, Chirpan, Kameno and Chiprovtsi.
On this day, we honor the memory of Major Raicho Nikolov, who lost his life during the Union. Captain Raicho was an officer of the Bulgarian militia during the Russo-Turkish war. After the Liberation, he joined the Rumelian militia. He is the author of the first Bulgarian military statute – the Law on Bulgarian Soldiers. Nikolov took an active part in the preparation of the Union. On September 6, 1885, he was shot through the Central Post Office while chasing a corrupt official.
On this date in 1522 Spain docked the first ship to circumnavigate the world. The ship Victoria returns to San Lucar de Barrameda under the command of Fernando Magellan. Magellan’s expedition was the first to circumnavigate the world and the first to cross the strait in South America, known today as the Strait of Magellan. The name of the Pacific Ocean (Pacific Ocean) was also given by the navigator, who called it Mare Pacificum – quiet sea.
In 1883 Prince Alexander Battenberg restores the Turnovo Constitution, suspended by the Grand National Assembly two years earlier. On April 27, 1881, the government of Petko Karavelov was overthrown by a coup, at the bottom of which stood Prince Alexander Battenberg. The reason is the limited rights that the Constitution gives to the prince. On July 1, the Grand National Assembly suspended or suspended the operation of the Constitution.
The possibility of greater powers for Battenberg was discussed several times with the Russian Emperor Alexander II, but he was categorically against it. After his death, Battenberg went to Russia and persuaded the new monarch to support him. Even the idea of changing the form of government began to be considered, but in the end the Grand National Assembly decided only to suspend the Constitution. Battenberg received exclusive rights and ruled by decree for the next 7 years.

Conspiracy theories about the death of the wife of the English heir to the throne continue to be floated to this day, and many people are convinced that it was murder.
Shortly before her tragic end, she predicted in a letter to her faithful butler that she would be killed in a car accident.
She died at the age of 36 in the Alma tunnel in the French capital after a head-on collision with one of the reinforcing columns.
