SHORT HISTORY: The history of Ottoman Bulgaria spans nearly 500 years, from the conquest of the Second Bulgarian Empire by the Ottoman Empire in 1396, to its liberation in 1878. Bulgarian territories were administrated as the Rumelia Eyalet. The Ottoman rule was a period marked by oppression and misgovernment and represents a deviation of Bulgaria's development as a Christian European state. A process of cultural revival occurred with the weakening of the Ottoman administration after 1700, which ultimately resulted in an organized, armed struggle for liberation. As a result of the Russo-Turkish War (1877–1878), Bulgaria regained its freedom but was divided into the Principality of Bulgaria, a self-governing Ottoman vassal state, and the vilayet of Eastern Rumelia. It was reunified in 1885 and recognized as a fully independent state in 1908... AS YOU CAN SEE THERE ARE MANY MARKS OF USE AND YEARS. THE SURFACE IS RUSTY AND COVERED WITH MANY DENTS.
