2013: Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez dies at age 58 following a long battle with cancer. Chavez first announced his cancer diagnosis in June 2011, but the government never revealed details about his prognosis or specified what kind of cancer he had. He had served as an army officer before attempting to overthrow the country's government in 1992, for which he served two years in prison. He was elected president in 1999.
