Imelda Romualdez Marcos once known as the "Steel Butterfly", was born in 1930 to a prominent family in the Central Visayas in Leyte Province in the Philippine Islands. After winning a nation-wide beauty contest she married Ferdinand Marcos, a rising political leader who later became president of the Philippines. She is to this day remembered for her "shoe collection".
