François Hollande was born into the middle-class family of Nicole Frédérique Marguerite Tribert, a social worker, and Georges Gustave Hollande, a physician. At the age of 13, his family moved to Paris where he attended a series of schools including Saint-Jean-Baptiste-de-la-Salle and Lycée Pasteur, before obtaining his law diploma from Panthéon-Assas University. He continued his education at École des Hautes Etudes Commerciales de Paris (HEC Paris) from which he graduated in 1975. In 1980, François Hollande graduated from the elite École Nationale d’Administration.
In 1979, while still a student François Hollande joined the Socialist Party, and soon afterwards started serving in the administration of François Mitterrand – the president of France at that time – as a junior economic advisor. Subsequently, in 1980 François Hollande entered the prestigious quasi-judicial body of the French government – Cour des comptes (Court of Audit). These initial engagements provided the basis for François Hollande’s net worth.
Prior to becoming the member of the National Assembly for Corrèze in 1988, Hollande was a municipal councilor for Ussel in 1983. In 1997, François Hollande was named as the First Secretary of the Socialist Party. Although after the 2002 presidential elections he became the public face of the Socialists, his authority was in decline. After the Socialist candidate lost the 2007 presidential elections to Nicolas Sarkozy, François Hollande publically announced that he would no longer be at the head of the Socialist Party, and resigned in 2008. Regardless, he was still adding sums to his overall net worth.
Before he was elected as the President of France in 2012, François Hollande served as the Mayor of Tulle between 2001 and 2008 which was immediately followed by the position of the President of the General Council of Corrèze. At the presidential function, Hollande succeeded Nicolas Sarkozy and also inherited the title of the Prince of Andorra, as the President of France is one of the two rulers of the Principality of Andorra along with the King Of Spain. Among the first measures that he took as the president, was decreasing the income of the president, the prime minister and all other government members by 30%. This decision has certainly impacted the overall wealth of François Hollande adversely.
When it comes to his personal life, François Hollande was married to a colleague and fellow Socialist politician, Ségolène Royal from 1978, and with whom he has four children. However, in 2007, the couple separated after Royal was defeated at the presidential election.
Several months after divorce, it was acknowledged that François Hollande is dating journalist Valérie Trierweiler, after she started following him on official journeys and moved in the presidential residence, Élysée Palace, with him. After the French tabloid discovered Hollande’s affair with an actress Julie Gaynet, he announced his official separation from Trierweiler in 2014.
