Born on July 28, 1929 in Southampton, United States, Jacqueline Lee Bouvier went down in history as the wife of the assassinated President John Fitzgerald Kennedy. Nicknamed “Jackie” by the American people, Jacqueline Kennedy assumed the role of First Lady of the United States with a certain charm during her husband’s term in office, from January 20, 1961 to November 22, 1963. The presidential couple was married on September 12, 1953 in Newport. Together they gave birth to Caroline Bouvier Kennedy, born in 1957, and John Fitzgerald Kennedy Jr. born in 1960. Two more of their children, Arabella and Patrick, unfortunately did not survive. After the assassination of her husband in Dallas in 1963, Jackie Kennedy married the Greek shipowner Aristotle Onassis, which was a big deal. She became “Jackie O”. After the death of Aristotle Onassis, in 1975, Jackie Kennedy settled with the diamond dealer Maurice Tempelsman, his last companion. On May 19, 1994, she died of cancer of the lymphatic system. She is buried in Arlington Cemetery alongside JFK.
