French president and wife divorce

“I don’t see myself as first lady – the whole idea bores me.” — Cecilia Sarkozy Interviewed in March 2005

Cecilia Maria Sara Isabel Ciganer-Albeniz was born in Paris to a pianist father of Russian origins and a Spanish mother. A law student and parliamentary aide as well as a model, she was first married at the age of 27 to 51-year-old children’s TV presenter Jacques Martin at the town hall of the chic Paris suburb of Neuilly in 1984.

The man who performed their marriage ceremony was a certain Nicolas Sarkozy, then the 29-year old mayor of the suburb.

A BBC profile of Ms ex-Sarkozy is most interesting.
