 (ä-kē′nō), Corazón Cojuangco 1933-2009.
Philippine political leader. After the assassination of her husband, Benigno S. Aquino, Jr. (1932-1983), on his return from political exile, she ran for president (1986) against Ferdinand Marcos. Following the apparently fraudulent election, Marcos fled the country and Aquino became president (1986-1992).
