Grigor Nachovich — The Beelzebub
Григор Начович — Велзевула
Category: Modern Bulgarian history
Grigor Nachovich (1845—1920) was a Bulgarian statesman, one of the founders of post-liberation Bulgaria. Beelzebub is the Phoenician god of evil. This nickname was undeservedly given to Grigor Nachovich by his political opponents. He contributed to the revolutionary struggle and the Russo-Turkish war of liberation; he participated in the Constituent Assembly for the drafting of the Bulgarian constitution (1879), first finance minister of the Principality of Bulgaria, he held various ministerial positions in many governments, diplomatic ambassador and adviser, mayor of Sofia — he never wanted to become a prime minister. Even his opponents included him as a minister in their governments, saying: "There is Nachovich, there is a government."
