Kubrat, Prince of Panagyurishte

Book Review

Kubrat, Prince of Panagyurishte, Duke of Saxony[4] (born 5 November 1965, Madrid, Spain), known with his civilian name as Kubrat de Sajonia-Coburgo-Gotha y Gómez-Acebo (in Spain) or Kubrat Sakskoburggotski (in Bulgaria), is a Spanish surgeon and member of the former Bulgarian Royal Family. He is the third son of the exiled Tsar Simeon II of Bulgaria and his wife Doña Margarita Gómez-Acebo y Cejuela. Simeon II was exiled as a child when Bulgaria ceased to be a monarchy, so Simeon's wife and children never received any royal titles from Bulgaria.

Education and career

After completing his primary and secondary education at the Lycée Français in Madrid, Prince Kubrat studied between 1984 and 1990 at the University of Navarra in Pamplona, where he obtained a Licentiate Magna Cum Laude in Medicine and Surgery. After his graduation, he worked for five years as a resident physician at Puerta de Hierro Clinic in Madrid, where he made his expertise as a general surgeon. Subsequently he worked for a year at the St. Mark's Hospital and Northwick Park Hospital and further specialized as a surgeon in proctology. Prince Kubrat worked between 1997 and 2003 as a colorectal surgeon at the Ruber International Clinic in Madrid and was in charge of the Ambulatory Surgery Unit. Since September 2003, he became Head of the Colorectal Unit at the San Camillo Hospital in Madrid, where he also acts as Director of the Team Care Management since June 2006. He was director of Shared Medical Systems between 1999 and 2000, and is currently also part of the advisory board of Tokuda Hospital (Sofia, Bulgaria) and a Consultant for Mensor Health Care, S.L in Madrid.[5]

Marriage and issue

Prince Kubrat married on 2 July 1993 at the Monastery of la Encarnación, Madrid with Doña Carla María de la Soledad Royo-Villanova y Urrestarazu, daughter of Jaime Royo-Villanova y Paya and wife María del Carmen Urrestarazu y Ozueta. Together they have three sons:

  • Prince Mirko Panagiurishtski of Bulgaria, born 26 April 1995 in Madrid.
  • Prince Lukás Panagiurishtski of Bulgaria, born 15 July 1997 in Madrid.
  • Prince Tirso Panagiurishtski of Bulgaria, born 3 June 2002 in Madrid.

He is the godfather of Pablo Nicolás Urdangarín y de Borbón, who is the son of the Duchess and Duke of Palma.
