Juan Perón (1895 to 1974) served as President of Argentina from 1946 to 1955 as well as 1973 to 1974. As head of an army group, he helped to overthrow Castillo in 1943. During his first Presidency, he was married to Eva Perón, the subject of the musical Evita, who was very popular with the people. She died in 1952.
Church and army opposition to corruption and repression forced Perón into exile, but he returned in 1973 to serve briefly as President once again. Upon his death, he was succeeded by his third wife, Isabel.
