    I may be wrong, but in my belief that word should be written as преставился.

    Представился would mean that Prince Boris introduced himself.

    Did you write those WIKI article yourself?
    Я так думаю.

    Many thanks for the correction. Nevertheless, in Old Slavonic this was the same word: he introduced himself to the Lord. Phonetically, it was "преставился", while morphologically it was "представился".

    No, I have not contributed to WIKI so far.

    It is worthy to mention that His acts were of great importance for Slavonic languages, the Cyrillic alphabet (which probably first appeared in His court) and the Orthodox Christianity.

    Князь/царь/император/король: откуда эти слова и что значили?

    Согласен, что смешно выглядит, тем более, что князь Борис звание свое фактически не менял. В старо-славянских текстах Он назван "князем", а в текстах на греческом - "архонтом". Поэтому, и сейчас следует по-русски или по-болгарски Его величать как "князь", по-гречески "архонт", по-немецки "K

    Why does He deserve to be known?

    If there were not the acts of Alexander the Great, then there would not be the Roman Empire, the Christianity as the most important religion world-wide, the European civilisation and also the modern civilisation in their appearance which happened. So, Alexander the Great deserves to be known.

    If there were not the acts of St. Boris, king of Bulgaria, then the Orthodox Christianity would not be the same, and Russia would not be the same.

    St. Boris would baptise Bulgaria anyway. However, he might subordinate Bulgarian Church to the Bishop of Rome (to the Pope) and if so, Bulgaria would be a catholic country like Croatia and Poland, and also it would not be probable for Russia to be an orthodox country (Russia might be even Muslim!).

    Moreover, St. Boris might admit Greek in churches instead of promoting the Old-Church-Slavonic language. If so, then the Russian language would not be the same (it might be similar to Ukrainian, Belarus, Polish) and, most probably, Russians would use the roman alphabet like Polish people do. Or, another adaptaion of the Greek alphabet to Slavonic might appear, different than the current one.

    Ask any average person about him, and he/she won't tell you much. People's memory is too short. Moreover, they're interested in other things then just honouring the memory of many great figures in history. It's too much to bear in mind all of the deeds and to have constant reverence to them. History is a bitch. It's either happens or not, I don't see anything special in it. And that's why I don't care about history at all. Yet to know something is always good.

    christo_tamarin I believe Rtyom didn't mean he doesn't care. Did you Tyom? I thought his words were rethorical. We had no idea about St. Boris before you mentioned him, as well as most of us. It surely doesn't mean we disrespect his historical role! We all must appreciate it, but unlikely you will find here a great deal of the knowlegeable historians. Kirill and Mefodij are very famous Saints on the Russian soil. So though their patron had been forgotten his deeds were eventually honored by Russians throughout the centuries. Boris is a quite popular Russian name.

    And I have seen at last what shows your avatar - it's a POODLE!!!!
    Я так думаю.
