All we know is what DID happen -- which was that King Boris of the Bulgarians, who succeeded to the throne upon the abdication in 1918 of his father (Tsar Ferdinand, who died in 1948), eventually predeceased him. As it was, his successor was his minor son, who nominally became King Simeon (still living today), for reasons that as of 1943, the house of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha was still reigning in that country. But an abdicated king is legally dead, so Bulgaria was ruled by a regency (headed by the boy king's uncle) until the abolition of the monarchy.
