Agelleto is a revolutionist, social and state activist, member of BTCRK, many years director of Bulgarian Post, Telegraphs and Telephones. In his Ideological development he travels quite a path: from nihilist to courtier. His fate is destined to be part of the rise and collapse of Bulgarian statehood. On 14th of February 1947 Ivan Stoianovich dies. Two days before his death, he shares these words with his relatives: "In cocktail of spite, envy and mainly ignorance you will spend your lives. So - going away from this world - I pity you".
