Ferdinand E. Marcos (1917-1989) was the president of the Philippines from 1965-1986, ruling an authoritarian regime known for its corruption and antidemocratic practices. After a fraudulent election in 1986, Marcos fled the country at the urging of the United States, spending his final years in exile in Hawaii. His son, Bongbong Marcos, was elected the 17th president of the Philippines in 2022, by whitewashing the human rights abuses and corruption of his father’s presidency.
