- Liberation of Bulgaria
Bulgarian historiography, the term "Liberation of Bulgaria" is used to denote the events of the Russo-Turkish War of 1877-78that led to the establishment of a Bulgarian statewith the Treaty of San Stefanoof 3 March, 1878. According to this treaty, the Ottoman Empirewas deprived of a part of its territoryand "Bulgaria" was established in these lands as a separate client-stateof the sultan. Bulgaria achieved its full independenceon 22 September 1908, then already united with the former Ottoman provinceof Eastern Rumelia.
The term is, however, partially inaccurate, as it only refers to the liberation of Bulgaria from Ottoman rule. As that "Bulgaria" is accepted as the third Bulgarian state, the first liberation of Bulgaria, which led to the establishment of the
Second Bulgarian Empire, happened in the year 1185 as a consequence of an uprising against the Byzantine Empire.
