Biography

Boris was born in Toronto, Canada. He is the grandson of King Boris III of Bulgaria and the great-grandson of King Victor Emmanuel III of Italy. As a descendant of Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom, great-great-great grandson, he is in the line of succession to the British Throne. According to Marlene Eilers, Boris of Leiningen belongs to the orthodox creed, which means he is one of rare princely persons with a religiously-unhindered claim to some former monarchies which have eastern orthodox tradition, such as Russia and Bulgaria.

On February 14, 1987 in Westfield, New Jersey, Boris married Millena Manov (born August 22, 1962). They have one son:

  • Prince Nicholas of Leiningen (b. October 25, 1991, Philadelphia).

Boris and Millena were divorced in 1996.

On September 11, 1998 in Neptune City, New Jersey, Boris married Cheryl Riegler (born August 9, 1962), a nurse practitioner. They have two children:

  • Prince Karl Heinrich of Leiningen (b. February 17, 2001, Long Beach, New Jersey).
  • Princess Juliana Elizabeth Maria of Leiningen (b. September 19, 2003, Long Beach, New Jersey).

Boris is currently Director of Business Development for Massa Montalto Architects in Neptune, New Jersey.

Boris is active in cultural events involving the Bulgarian-American community, especially those related to the Holocaust. Boris and Cheryl are active marathon runners. Boris is also an avid motorcyclist.
