Ferdinand Marcos is the first in your lists that I can remember in what little I know of the Philippines. Sadly, all I can remember is that his wife had a lot of pairs of shoes. That makes me think we emphasized the wrong things over here in the States.

I'm part Filipino, and I sadly report that what stands out in my recall of recent Filipino history was that Ferdinand and Imelda were perceived as eccentric and aristocratic at the expense of the people while somehow maintaining the loyalty of some citizens. Hopefully, the current government is a bit more stable. Thanks for sharing! Aloha!
