Aleksandar Stamboliyski (March 1, 1879 – June 14, 1923) was the prime minister of Bulgaria from 1919 until 1923. He was a member of the Agrarian Union, an agrarian peasant movement which was not allied to the monarchy, and edited their newspaper. Opposed to the country's participation in World War I and its support for the Central Powers, he was court-martialed and sentenced to life in prison in 1915. He was a supporter of the idea of a Balkan federation and identified not as a Bulgarian, but as a South Slav.
