She was one of 16 children (twelve of whom survived), but had only one child herself, a son who predeceased her.

She died on her 88th birthday, 8th April 2002.

She is considered Mexico’s greatest screen diva for three reasons: she never played supporting roles, she preferred the film to television, and she always took great care of her beauty.

Her most recognizable role was in the 1943 film Doña Bárbara as the title character, which led her to be known simply as “La Doña.”

The iconic Mexican movie star’s beauty inspired famous artists, but her independence and toughness made her legendary and an inspirational figure.
