Wife of son of daughter of India's first Prime Minister, all of whom were in the Indian National Congress political party.

Born in Italy. Met her future husband in Cambridge, UK.

Eventually went on to become the president of the Indian National Congress (after assassination of her husband Rajiv Gandhi, former president of INC, who was son of Indira Gandhi, former president of INC, who was daughter of Jawaharlal Nehru, former president of INC).

Turned down Prime Ministership when INC won the 2004 Indian general elections. Instead installed her puppet (Dr. Manmohan Singh, who was not even a Member of Parliament initially) as the Prime Minister.

To be succeeded by her son, Rahul Gandhi (because he is her son).
And they all say that India is a democracy... How so, when the current INC president, Sonia Gandhi, continues the long line of dynastic rule in the Indian National Congress?
