Edith Wilson was the second wife of President Woodrow Wilson as his first wife died while he was still in office. Due to such a short time between the death of his first wife, and the proposed marriage to his second, the press gave Edith a very hard time as they were constantly poking fun. Groundless rumors also began to spread that both Wilson and Edith had his first wife murdered. The situation became so potent that Wilson even gave Edith the opportunity to back out of the marriage. Four years after their wedding Wilson suffered a debilitating stroke which rendered him partially paralyzed. Due to this, Edith took over many of the duties and responsibilities of government. She personally screened all state matters prior to Wilson seeing and/or signing them. According to Edith, this was direct orders from his physician as he did not want Wilson's mental health to worsen.
