Cause of Death:

Death Summary: She developed uterine cancer, which later spread to other parts of her body. Her body was embalmed. In 1955 when a revolution deposed Perón, her body was hidden by the new military authorities. In 1971 it was finally revealed to have been buried in Italy. She was brought back to Argentina and finally buried there.

Who was Maria Eva Duarte : Argentine actress and Colonel Juan Perón wife. When Perón came to power in 1946, elected president of Argentina, she became actively involved in politics. She received the backing of the labour unions, and became the darling of the poor (descamisados). To this day "Evita" as she is known in Argentina is worshipped by the people.
Some historians consider that she was the driving force behind Perón. She's credited with fighting for womens rights, pricipally helping women obtain the right to vote in Argentina.

    This year-May 7th-marks the 90th Annivarsary of
    Eva Peron’s birthdate.
    And the day after, is the 30th Anniversary of the
    American premiere of the musical EVITA.
    This Wednesday, I’ll be seeing Mandy Patinkin
    and Patti Lupone in concert. They did EVITA together.
    I didn’t realize that Che Guevera asked Eva Peron
    for a motor cycle-but didn’t get one.
    And Eva wouldn’t carry a musical note-and they
    made a musical about her?
    I have seen Madonna and Faye Dunaway portraying
    Eva Peron-good job.
    I loved Patti Lupone, Elaine Paige, Elena Roger
    AND Anna Brummel as Eva Peron.
    On Halloween-2005, I was Eva Peron at a Halloween party.
    It’s sad her name EVITA means TO AVOID in Spanish.
    Feliz 90th Cumpleanos Eva.
