Momchil: The Rhodope's king
Category: Second Bulgarian Kingdom
Момчил — Родопският цар
Language: Bulgarian


   The book reveals the historical figure of Momchil (ca.13051345) — a 14th-century semi-autonomous Bulgarian local ruler. Initially Momchil was recruited by the Byzantines as a mercenary. Through his opportunistic involvement in the Byzantine civil war of 13411347, where he played the various sides against each other, he became ruler of a large area in the Rhodopes Mountains and Aegean Thrace. Later, Momchil achieved initial successes against Turks and Byzantines, but eventually he was defeated by a joint Byzantine–Turkish army in 1345 (Battle of Peritheorion). Due to his early opposition to the Turks, he is remembered in popular South Slavic legend as a fighter against the Turkish invasion of the Balkans.
