What is the relations between personal marriage and political leadership? How do these two forms of human activities interplay and impact upon each other positively or negatively ? Enjoy Evita.

Juan Peron, President of Argentina for over 11 years, married three different women. The first wife died young, and little is known about her. The second wife, Eva or Evita as we call her, is famous long after her death, and had a major influence on her husband's career.
The third wife, Isabel was herself a politician, and served briefly as Argentina's president.
Today, Peron is considered a a saint or a devil in Argentina, depending on who you talk to.

In my opinion, whatever his mistakes, Peron was still preferable to the Generals who seized power after him. Even today, 30 years later, ordinary people are still trying to find out what happened to their loved ones who disappeared in the "dirty war" which the Generals launched after their coup-d'etat.
