Theme of Bulgaria

For other uses, see Bulgaria (disambiguation)

The Theme of Bulgaria was a province of the Byzantine Empire established by Emperor Basil II after the victory over Samuel of Bulgaria (997-1014 AD) and the fall of the First Bulgarian Empire in 1018. It was based on the wider regions of Skopje and Ohrid.[1] Its capital was Skopje and it was governed by a strategos. Two main rebellions took place in the region, the Uprising of Peter Delyan (1040-1041) and the Uprising of Georgi Voiteh (1072). After 150 years the Bulgarian Empire was restored, with the Rebellion of the brothers Peter and Asen in 1185 AD.
