'France will never let Lebanon go,' Macron said in a visit to Beirut, as unusual petition circulates to restore mandate
Emmanuel Jean-Michel Frédéric Macron was born December 21, 1977. At the age of 39, Macron became the youngest president in the history of France when he assumed office on May 14, 2017.
Macron was born in Amiens, to Françoise Macron, a physician, and Jean-Michel Macron, a professor of neurology. He was raised in a non-religious family, but was baptized a Roman Catholic of his own volition at the age of 12.
Macron is largely viewed as a centrist by the French population. During his time in the French Socialist Party, he supported the party's centrist wing.
Macron became known to the French public after his first appearance on the television program "Des Paroles Et Des Actes" in March 2015.
