- Aquino, CorazónCojuangco
A·qui·no (ä-kēʹnō), Corazón Cojuangco. Born 1933.
Philippine political leader. After the assassination of her husband, Benigno S. Aquino, Jr. (1932-1983), on his return to the Philippines from political exile, she ran for president (1986) against 20-year incumbent Ferdinand Marcos. Following the apparently fraudulent election, Marcos fled the country and Aquino became president (1986-1992).
