The de Gaulles - by Hénock Gugsa

The de Gaulles *
- by Hénock Gugsa -
Charles de Gaulle was known for his regal bearing and fastidious nature, so much so that his imperiousness became a kind of running joke for the citizens of France. A popular gag imagined de Gaulle’s wife, Yvonne, returning from shopping and exclaiming, “God, I am tired.” Her husband is purported to have replied, “I have often told you, my dear, it was sufficient in private if you addressed me as ‘Monsieur le President.’”
* Charles deGaulle (1890-1970) and Yvonne deGaulle (1900-1979); married: 1921-1970

 Homage to the de Gaulles ...
