Bulgarian princess, the daughter of Tsar Boris III and Tsaritsa Ioanna and the older sister of Simeon II of Bulgaria. Her baptism in the Bulgarian Orthodox Church caused controversy at the time.
After the abolition of the monarchy in 1946, Princess Maria Louise left the country with her mother and brother. They first lived in Egypt and then moved to Spain.
She married Prince Karl of Leiningen in a civil ceremony on 14 February 1957 in Amorbach and in a religious ceremony on 20 February 1957 in Cannes. The couple had two sons: Prince Boris of Leiningen (b. 1960) and Prince Hermann Friedrich of Leiningen (b. 1963). Karl and Maria Luisa divorced on 4 December 1968.
On 16 November 1969, she married Bronislaw Tomasz Andrzej Chrobok (b. 27 August 1933 Katowice), in Toronto, Canada. They currently live in New Jersey, and have a daughter and a son. The title Princess of Koháry was nominally ceded to Princess Maria-Louise and the children of her second marriage by her brother Simeon II in 2012.
