Imelda Marcos, GM PLH is the widow of former Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos.

In popular culture, she is often remembered for her collection of more than a thousand pairs of shoes.

When President Marcos' government was accused of being involved in the assassination of Benigno Aquino, Jr., the people in Manila led the so-called People Power Revolution and forced Marcos out of office in 1986.

Corazon Aquino, as the then new elected President, requested that American forces at Clark Air Base have the Marcos family exiled to the United States, and they were sent to Hawaii.

After the death of Ferdinand, Imelda and her family were granted permission by Aquino to return to the Philippines.

Her return has since allowed her to restore her political dynasty.

She was elected to the House of Representatives in 1995 for Leyte, and again in 2010 for Ilocos Norte.

Despite facing numerous allegations of the family's source of wealth, she was not imprisoned on these charges.

She continued to wield power, and her ability to survive upheavals in her life has led her to be called the "Steel Butterfly".
