Hugo Chavez Net Worth $1 Billion

Hugo Chavez was not born into a rich family and had to work hard in order to achieve what he did. When Hugo was 17 years old, he started attending the Venezuelan Academy of Military Sciences. He was a very active teenager and was interested in many things, one of them being politics. After finishing military academy, Hugo began his military career. During this period of time Hugo was able to see even more problems in his country and wanted to do something in order to effect change. In 1977 Chavez founded a revolutionary movement, which was known as “ELPV”. Later he formed another unit, called “Bolivarian Revolutionary Army-200”. Although his intentions were only good ones, Hugo was imprisoned for two years for his actions in attempting a coup against the government.

Hugo soon became famous among the people of Venezuela. He began participating in politics even more intensively than before. In 1998 Hugo decided to participate in presidential elections, and this decision was really successful as Hugo was able to win the election and become the President of Venezuela. Later he was re-elected for three more presidential terms. This, of course, was the main source of Hugo Chavez’s net worth. During the time when he was the President of Venezuela, Hugo made a lot of changes in the country in order to improve the economics, social conditions, medical care and many other things. There is no surprise that he was re-elected for so many times as he had made changes which particularly helped the poorer people. Unfortunately, Hugo suffered from a serious cancer and died in 2013.

While talking about Hugo’s personal life, it can be said that he was married twice. His first wife was Nancy Colmenares with whom he had three children, and the second one Marisabel Rodriguez: they have a daughter. Both marriages ended in divorce, and in between Hugo had a nine year relationship with Herma Marksman.

All in all, it can be said that Hugo Chavez was one of the most interesting and active personalities. He has worked hard not only for himself, but for the people of his country and tried to give them a better life. It is sad that such an influential person had to die from cancer at quite a young age. Despite this fact, many will remember him as one of the most influential and acclaimed leaders.

Quotes

#Quote
1He [Jesus] accompanied me in difficult times, in crucial moments. So Jesus Christ is no doubt an historical figure - he was someone who rebelled, an anti-imperialist guy. He confronted the Roman Empire. Because who might think that Jesus was a capitalist? No. Judas was the capitalist, for taking the coins! Christ was a revolutionary. He confronted the religious hierarchies. He confronted the economic power of the time. He preferred death in the defense of his humanistic ideals, who fostered change. He is our Jesus Christ.
