The Only Woman In The World Who Married Two Presidents

Serving as the First Lady in any of the country of the world attracts great privileges and boosts the status of an individual being the wife of the Head of State.

In modern contemporary world history, no one else has served as the first lady for two different Presidents and of different Nations apart from Graça Machel.

Graça Machel is a widow of both the first President of Mozambique Samora Machel and South African President Nelson Mandela. She was Samora's wife until his death in 1986 following a fatal plane crash in South Africa.

Shortly after the death of his husband, Graça Machel broke the world history for being the only woman having married to two Presidents. She was married to the former South African President Nelson Mandela at his 80th birthday celebrations.

Graça Machel is a mother of two and she is a humanitarian activist championing for the rights of women and children. She is aged 75 years old.
