Charles de Gaulle

How can you govern a country which has two hundred and forty-six varieties of cheese?

That's a very good question, mon général!  Charles de Gaulle was the leader of the Free French Forces in World War II, prime minister of the French provisional government after the liberation of France from the Nazis, and either the prime minister or president of France from 1958 to 1969.
