Has Ferdinand fled

July 19, 1913

There are reports from London that King Ferdinand of Bulgaria has fled his country.  The Los Angeles Times is reporting that an "exceptionally well-informed source" states that the King is "in flight."  Similar reports are coming out of Paris, stating that the king made "a hurried flight with Crown Prince Boris."

These reports, however, have not been confirmed.  The Bulgarian Legation in Brussels "discredits" the reports.

But a Vienna dispatch states that Queen Eleonore has "arrived unexpectedly at Ernstbrunn," a castle in Lower Austria, which is owned by her nephew, the Prince of Reuss.

This report also has been denied.
