The April Uprising was an insurrection organised by the Bulgarians in the Ottoman Empire from April to May 1876, which indirectly resulted in the re-establishment of Bulgaria in 1878. The regular Ottoman Army and irregular bashi-bazouk units brutally suppressed the rebels, resulting in a public outcry in Europe, with many famous intellectuals condemning the Ottoman atrocities and supporting the oppressed Bulgarian population.
The 1876 uprising involved only those parts of the Ottoman territories populated predominantly by Bulgarians. The emergence of Bulgarian national sentiments was closely related to the re-establishment of the independent Bulgarian Orthodox Church in 1870.
This little book has the ambition to discover and interpret scanty and scattered documentary, memoir, artistic, and historiographical testimonies to write the story of women in the April Uprising. Rayna Knyaginya is one of then. She was a Bulgarian teacher and revolutionary, who is famous for having sewn the flag of the April Uprising of 1876.
