"If I have to apply five turns to the screw each day for the happiness of Argentina, I will do it."
  • Eva Peron became more powerfull in death. When Peron was overthrown in 1955, the new government had her body removed from the Ministry of Labour. It was then hidden in such places as a military base, truck parked on a street, an attic, and then shipped to Italy. It was exhumed in 1971 and returned to Peron.
  • Eva Peron died at just 33. Shortly before her death, Eva Peron had been given the official title of "Spiritual Leader of the Nation."
  • Evita underwent an emergency appendectomy in 1950. Her surgeon later said that she refused to submit to a life-saving hysterectomy after tests revealed she had uterine cancer, claiming the surgery would have interrupted her work for the poor.
  • Under Evita, women got the vote for the first time in 1950. Eva Peron redistributed the nation`s wealth from the rich to the poor. Eva Peron is often referred to by the affectionate Spanish language diminutive Evita, which literally translates into English as "Little Eva".
  • Pope Pius XII granted her a 30-minutes interview, a length reserved for queens only. She desperately craved the Pontific Marquee, a honorary title bestowed by the Vatican, but never succeeded.
