Ferdinand Emmanuel Edralin Marcos, Sr. was a Filipino strongman politician who was President of the Philippines from 1965 to 1986. He was a lawyer, member of the Philippine House of Representatives (1949 - 1959) and a member of the Philippine Senate (1959 - 1965). He was Senate President from 1963 to 1965.
While in power he implemented wide-ranging programs of infrastructure development and economic reform. However, his administration was marred by massive authoritarian corruption, despotism, nepotism, political repression, and human rights violations.
In 1983, his government was accused of being involved in the assassination of his primary political opponent, Benigno Aquino, Jr. Public outrage over the assassination served as the catalyst for the People Power Revolution in February 1986 that led to his removal from power and eventual exile in Hawaii.
