Ferdinand Emmanuel Edralin Marcos Jr. (September 11, 1917 - September 28, 1989) was the notorious President and dictator of the Philippines, well known for leading the Philippines under Martial Law from 1972 to 1981 while ruling as a dictator for over 20 years. He was toppled from power through the widely known and bloodless People Power Revolution, led by late eventual president Corazon "Cory" Aquino, the wife of his slain rival, Benigno Aquino Jr.
Benigno Jr.'s death along with the electoral fraud during the 1986 elections served as the last straw that triggered the revolt and ouster.
He is survived by his wife Imelda, and his children, among them, Ferdinand "Bongbong" Marcos Jr., his son.
Despite being exiled and their name tarnished, the Marcoses still has a foothold in the Philippine politics, with his son Bongbong being elected as the 17th President of the Philippines in 2022, succeeding Rodrigo Duterte.
