Has Marine Le Pen’s traumatic past made her tough or terrified?

Marine Le Pen, 48, is said to be charming, funny and charismatic. She loves cats and karaoke and on May 7 she could be the next President of France. But behind the charm lies a peculiar past that has 1shaped her vision of the world.

Marine is the daughter of ultra-right 2firebrand Jean-Marie Le Pen, who led France’s National Front from 1972 until 2015, when he referred to the holocaust as a “detail of history” and Marine expelled him from the party.

 

She spent her early years in a Paris apartment with her three sisters and a 3nanny while her father Jean-Marie and rather beautiful mother Pierette Lalanne held parties and political meetings in the apartment below. Christmas was sometimes spent with nanny too – her parents loved to travel and 4were not always back in time.
