Catherine Nay SEASON 2022 - 202306h00, January 25, 2023

François Hollande and Ségolène Royal, this is the scenario of the political couple as "obvious", formed by two candidates from the left who both dreamed of the Presidential.

A great tandem of the Fifth Republic which, almost 30 years of common life and four children later, collapsed under the weight of the infidelity of François Hollande.

But at the start of this romantic story, there is the meeting in 1978 on the benches of the ENA and the relationship that has been built since.

Parents of four children born between 1984 and 1992, François Hollande and Ségolène Royal experienced a meteoric political rise, first with François Mitterrand and then to positions of responsibility.

Ségolène Royal was appointed minister several times and François Hollande was to lead the Socialist Party for more than ten years.
