She was the consummate political wife for over twenty years. But her numerous accomplishments have been overshadowed by scandal, controversy and a fondness for shoes. Imelda Marcos was 25 years old when she married the up-and-coming congressman Ferdinand Marcos. It was the beginning of one of the most successful political unions of all time.
BIOGRAPHY® draws on rare footage, photos and interviews with historians, biographers, the former U.S. ambassador to the Philippines and friends of the former first lady to paint a balanced and objective portrait of this often misunderstood figure. Find out why she suffered a nervous breakdown early in her marriage, and why she remained immensely popular with poor Filipinos even as her husband became more and more removed and autocratic. And, of course, we'll take a peek inside her famous closets for a look at the thousands of pairs of shoes that remain, for many, her calling card.
Was she the ultimate political survivor or a corrupt jet-setter addicted to the high life? BIOGRAPHY® presents both sides of the Imelda Marcos story.
