The great Bulgarian poet and revolutionary hero Hristo Botev (1848-1876) is famous for both his poems and journalistic works, and for his participation in Bulgaria's movement for national liberation from the Ottoman Empire.

He died on June 2, 1876, as the leader of a 200-strong unit of Bulgarian rebels, who crossed from Romania to help the rebels of the April Uprising.
