 Josip Broz Tito - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Tito was the most prominent leader of the Anti-Fascist Council of National Liberation of Yugoslavia - AVNOJ, which convened in Bihać on November 26, 1942 and in Jajce on November 29, 1943.
Tito was just shy of his 59th birthday while she was 27 when they finally married in April 1952, with state security chief Aleksandar Rankovic as the groom's best man. Their eventual marriage came about somewhat unexpectedly since Tito actually rejected her some years earlier when his confidante Ivan Krajacic brought her in originally.
Though Tito was most likely born on May 7, he celebrated his birthday on May 25, after he became president of Yugoslavia, to mark the occasion of an unsuccessful attempt at his life by the Nazis in 1944.
