4. Andrew Jackson and Rachel Donald
known as the most controversial first ladies, Rachel Donelson was married to Lewis Robards of Kentucky before she wed Andrew Jackson in 1791. She had believed that her ex-husband had finalized their divorce, not realizing that, he did not legally file the papers until 1793. Because having a court clear-cut divorce was scandalous and frowned at , as at that time, Jackson’s opponents used Rachel’s past against him during campaigns, calling her imoral woman.
The stress of the mud sliding aggravated a heart condition which was pre- existing, and Rachel never got to see Jackson become president, she passed away following a heart attack two months before he took the mantle of leadership, Jackson was so shocked and grief-stricken that he was said to have clung to Rachel long after she had died, hoping that she would come back to him.
