French Presidential candidate who married his teacher when schooling

Thursday, 27 April 2017 - 11:09


Brigitte Trogneux, a former teacher who walked away from the occupation in 2015 to support her husband, is 25 years Emmanuel Macron's senior.

They met when he was 15 and she was a married private school teacher.

Her daughter was in the same class as her future husband.

She married Macron October 2007, 21 months after divorcing André Louis Auzière, aged 54, when Macron was 29.

These details seem to have vexed some.

While many in the En Marche! Movement love her, others have voiced some disapproval at the age gap. 

Brigitte Macron has 3 children and 7 grandchildren from her former marriage.
