Etymology[edit | edit source]
The Bulgars were a group of Turkic nomads that lived on the Eurasian steppes in the 7th century. They would invade the eastern frontier of the Eastern Roman Empire and establish the First Bulgarian Empire. Though changed in culture and language, the nation of Bulgaria survives today.
