G.S. Rakovski, engraving, art. Dimitar Panayotov, 1887

The question of Rakovski's exact date of birth has no clear answer and has been the subject of controversy over the years. In the early years after the Liberation, ambiguity existed regarding the year of birth itself, with the version of 1818 being the most widely circulated. It was only after the study of Rakowski's personal archive and the publication in 1910 of his unfinished autobiography that it was indisputably proven that he was born in 1821
