  Matija Čop (1797-1835)  
  Prešeren's friend and literary mentor. At the time, he was one of the most learned Slovenes. He worked abroad, later became a secondary school teacher and finally worked as a librarian in Ljubljana. He spoke nineteen languages and was familiar with all the contemporary world poetry. He assisted Prešeren by advising him and reviewing his work, and they fought on the same side in the battle over the alphabet. With his good reputation in Vienna, he helped to overcome many obstacles in the publication of Kranjska Čbelica (The Carniolan Bee). Čop led a rather ascetic bachelor's life.
