Charles de Gaulle, the hero who did not kiss his family, but who always adored his daughter with Down syndrome

If he was repudiated to cataly as a hero. When Charles de Gaulle challenged the French government about how he had to ride the army of him and with his plans to face Hitler, the General gave him the French nationality and condemned him to death. But Churchill ignored him and the forces of good ended with the delusions of greatness of the German dictator. A hero was born. He was the leader of free France, resistance and architect of the V Republic, from which he has just turned 63.

If he was looking for recognition as a statesman, in the private it was always tremendously conservative and protective. Although little affectionate. He married in 1921 with Yvonne Vendroux, daughter of some industrialists with possible with whom he would have three children, Philippe, who is about to be 100 years old, Elisabeth already deceased and Anne, who died because of a pneumonia with only twenty years . The latter had Down syndrome, a secret data for the whole country.

The little girl died in her arms and in tenor of what Deni Tillinac wrote in the general's loving dictionary, "if of Gaulle cried, he did it in his bedroom, where his children had banned." He never allowed him to enter into specific centers and did not be ashamed of her, the opposite of what happened in the Kennedy clan when they independently entered Rosemary-brother of the future president of the United States - and practiced several lobotomies. And she was the girl in her eyes. Only she made her brandish and even saved her life from her. They say that in an attack the bullet that went directly to her heart of her stopped her a medallion with the photo of her daughter's daughter and deceased from her.

When he returned home after long absences he was not loving, he did not take hugs and either kisses. But his wife loved him with devotion despite the sorrow, since it was rumored that he had been unfaithful with his secretary Elizabeth de Miribel, who typed the well-known BBC speech from London on June 18, 1940 in which Gaulle addressed the French to resist. Despite the tightness with Churchill, the British statesman convinced him to portray him in the London apartment of him next to his wife as part of a marketing strategy to sell a family image.

But of Gaulle was a tremendously serious man who almost did not smile. The coldness, the righteousness and the petulance of him was the result of a severely Catholic education in a Belgian boarding school. A clear example of his behavior is reflected when the Nazi army dome proposed to exchange his niece Geneviève, who was prey in Ravensbrück, by several German soldiers. He refused on resounding. However, in some biographies of him, he tells that while he was convalescent during World War He wrote enough poetry in which he turned the most intimate feelings of him.

After being president of the released France, he decided to resign and, in 1958, he achieved the presidency of the V Republic who lived one of his most critical moments during the student revolt of May 68. While he was at the Elisha Palace, dining at night Together with his wife and three times a year he gathered all his grandchildren and nephews. He resigned in 1969 and withdrew from politics.

Six months before his death, in November 1970 because of an aneurysm, he had a secret with Franco, who said "but if he is an old man" (and that the Spanish was two years old). This remembered the lawyer Gregorio Marañón, grandson of the prestigious scientist. The 196 cm of General Gallo contrasted strongly with the 163 cm of the Spanish dictator, so they had to look for a bed in the parador of Toledo because in that of the cigarette he was lodged, they were part of his legs. That happened to another great name of the French Society, the Fetish designer of Audrey Hepburn, Hubert de Givenchy, who tried to notify before arriving at the hotels.

The death of the statesman prevented his memories to end. The widow of it was reclided in his country house rejecting any type of official invitation, including that of Isabel II and burning almost all the general personal brasms except for a couple of costumes and a gift for the woman who had care of Anne .
