The Story of Simeon the Great

Simeon ascended to the Bulgarian throne in 893 with grand ambitions, eyeing the crown of the Roman emperor. In the summer of 917, he led a massive force of 60,000 troops in an invasion against the Byzantine Empire. His victory at the Battle of Achelous was a significant milestone, leading him to march on Constantinople, the most fortified city of the Middle Ages. Despite failing to breach the walls of Constantinople, his army wreaked havoc across Byzantine territories, significantly undermining the empire's dignity.

Over the next five years, the Bulgarian forces approached Constantinople four times. In 925, in defiance of Byzantine opposition, Simeon declared the Byzantine people as his subjects and proclaimed himself Emperor of the Romans and Bulgarians. This bold move cemented his position as the uncontested ruler of Southeast Europe.
