This chapter examines Prince Ferdinand's personal rule as Bulgaria's monarch during the period 1896-1912 and the political, social, and economic problems faced by Bulgaria under his regime. The restoration of relations with Russia in 1896 meant that at last Bulgarian political life could return to some form of normality and stability. Politicians exiled for their opposition to Prince Ferdinand and his minister president Stefan Stambolov were allowed to return and in 1898 the contentious issue of the pro-Russian Bulgarian officers who had left the country in 1886-1887 was at last solved. Their return was greeted by the population at large, but resented by many army officers who had remained in Bulgaria and who regarded their former colleagues as little more than deserters, nor could they be unaware that because many of those who had left held senior ranks, their return would produce promotion congestion.
