French President-elect, 39-year-old Emmanuel Macron, will be the youngest president in the history of the Fifth Republic, established by Charles de Gaulle more than 50 years ago. His wife Brigitte has been a strong presence throughout her husband's presidential campaign. 

Brigitte Trogneux is 24 years older than her husband. She is Macron's former drama teacher. They first met when he was 15, and have officially been a couple since Macron turned 18. The pair eventually married in 2007.
