Mandela was born on July 18, 1918 in the village of Mvezo in Umtata, then part of the Cape Province of South Africa. Due to the first name Rolihlahla, an Xhosa term colloquially meaning “troublemaker” in later years it became known by the name of his clan, Madiba.
His great-grandfather, Ngubengcuka, was the property of the Thembu people in the Transkeian lands of the Eastern Cape Province of modern South Africa. Mandela was married three times, had six children, and had at least seventeen grandchildren and seventeen great-grandchildren. He could be strict and demanding of his children, although he was more affectionate with his grandchildren.
He was the 1st black head of state and the first elected in a fully representative (democratic election). His government focused on dismantling the legacy of apartheid by addressing institutional racism and promoting racial reconciliation.
An African nationalist and socialist ideologist, he served as President of the African National Congress (ANC) from 1991 to 1997.
His 1st marriage was to ‘Evelyn Ntoko Mase’ in October 1944. They separated after 13 years in 1957 under multiple strains of adultery and his constant absence, his dedication to revolutionary agitation, and the fact that she was a Jehovah’s Witness, a religion that required political neutrality. Mandela’s second wife was social worker Winnie Madikizela Mandela, although they separated in 1995. Mandela married his third wife on his 80 years old. Mandela was a controversial figure for his life.
Widely seen as a symbol of democracy and social justice, it has received more than 250 honors – including the Nobel Peace Prize – and has become an object of a cult of personality. He is deeply respected within South Africa, where he is often referred to as the Xhosa clan and described as the (Father of the Nation). He passed away on 2013.
