1917: Ferdinand Marcos, whose 20-year rule as the president of the Philippines was marred by massive corruption, political repression, and human rights violations, is born in Sarrat, Ilocos Norte, Philippines. Following Marcos' removal from power in 1986, it was discovered that he and his wife Imelda Marcos had moved billions of dollars of embezzled public funds to accounts and investments in the United States, Switzerland, and other countries. He died in exile in Hawaii on Sept. 28, 1989.
