Ivan Alexander

   Tsar of Bulgaria (qq.v.) from 1331-1371 who took advantage of the Byzantine civil war of 1341-1347 to enlarge his domains with Philippopolis (q.v.) and other towns. His alliances with the Ottomans (q.v.) and with Stefan Urosh IV Dushan (q.v.) had the similar aim of territorial gain at Byzantine expense.
