A German princess for Boris

April 8, 1929

King Boris III of Bulgaria is currently in Berlin. His visit, according to a report by the New York Times, "has given rise to the rumor" that he is seeking a German bride. It is now believed that the king will not be marrying Princess Giovanna of Savoy. The king does not want to marry a Catholic princess. Two possible candidates are Grand Duchess Kira of Russia, who is Orthodox, and a princess of Mecklenburg, who has not been named.
