Dobri Bozhilov Khadzhiyanakev (Bulgarian: Добри Божилов Хаджиянакиев) (June 13, 1884 – February 1, 1945) was Prime Minister of Bulgaria during World War II.

Born in Bogdan Filov became prime minister in 1940. In 1943, after Tsar Boris III died, Filov became one of Bulgaria’s three regents. Filov, a fervent ally of Nazi Germany and the most powerful of the regents, used his power to appoint Bozhilov (another pro-German) prime minister.

As prime minister, Bozhilov worked closely with the Nazis, virtually becoming their puppet as Fatherland front government. He was found guilty of war crimes and a variety of misdeeds he had committed while finance minister, sentenced to death, and executed in February 1945.
