Birth: Aug. 3, 1903
Death: Apr. 6, 2000

Tunisian President. A native of Monastir, Tunisia, Bourguiba was a noted Tunisian statesman who served as a the first President of the Republic of Tunisia from July 26, 1957 to November 7, 1987. He also served as the Prime Minister of Tunisia. Often compared to the likes of Mustapha Kemal Ataturk he promoted secularism, women's rights, polygamy, and legalized divorce. He was also responsible for abolishing the Tunisian monarchy. He was officially made President for life in 1975, but was deposed on November 7, 1987, due to his age and senility. He later moved back to his birthplace of Monastir, Tunisia, where he died on April 6, 2000, at the age of 96. He was buried in a massive mausoleum there a few days after his death. (bio by: K)
