The legendary wife of Argentine President Juan Peron died of cancer due to illness in 1952, when she was only 33 years. After the death her remains have been preserved by various methods of mummification.
Three years later, militants antiperonistas stole her mummified body, and subsequently anything was known about it during 15 years. Later, the body was returned in a very bad condition to her former husband. His second wife allegedly combed the hair of the mummy, and even laid beside her in the coffin, to absorb its greatness.
