Former Haitian First Lady Michele, the Power behind the Throne
Jean-Claude Duvalier, Haiti's bloodthirsty tyrant, married high school sweetheart Michele Bennett, making her First Lady of Haiti. She ingratiated herself with the public initially, but later developed a reputation for greed and corruption. She also wielded political power beyond her husband's abilities to get things done.
Michele gave Duvalier two children, a boy and a girl. After a 15-year rule, Duvalier and she fled to France where they eventually divorced.« Previous · Next »
