BW-03 Emmanuel Macron
- “I felt that we had always known each other.”
French president Emmanuel Macron is married to Brigitte Trogneux, who is 24 years his senior.
They first met when he was only 15 years old and took part in drama plays at the very respectable Jesuit school of 'La Providence' in the quiet, middle-class neighbourhood of Amiens (Northern France).

At the time, Trogneux was 39 years old, married, and the mother of three children.

"My first sexual experience was with a maid in the house when I was about 12 or 13. She seduced me. I knew everything that was to be known,
When Sardonicus later got some psychological problems which were in his view completely unrelated to his childhood experiences, a therapist tried to link this to the pedophile relationship he told her about.
