Bulgarian Empire, Theodore Svetoslav, 1300 - 1322
Tsar Theodore Svetoslav was a wise and capable ruler who brought stability and relative prosperity to the Bulgarian Empire after two decades of constant Mongol intervention in the internal issues of the Empire. His reign began with the recovery of Southern Bessarabia and a few years later defeated the Byzantines and took back most of northern Thrace occupied by them during the crisis. After 1307 he implemented a peaceful policy towards all neighbors which resulted in expanded trade and economic growth.
