King Boris seeks wife

December 18, 1924

King Boris III of Bulgaria will leave Sofia in early January for a "tour in search of a wife," reports the Chicago Daily Tribune.  The "youthful bachelor sovereign" will start his search in Belgrade, then travel to Bucharest, Rome, Paris, and ending in London.

Bulgarian diplomats are "hopeful" that the king will find a bride among the "princesses of the Little Entente powers or Greece or Italy."

Queen Marie of Romania has one daughter, Princess Ileana,  left, and she is eager to place her on "a Balkan throne."
