  • Philippe Pétain was the Marshal of France and eventually the Chief of State of Vichy France from 1940 to 1944. Pétain was 80 years-old in 1940, making him the oldest head of state that France has ever had. In his old age, he became extremely senile and suffered dementia. He required round-the-clock care until he died at the age of 95 in 1951. In 1973, his coffin was stolen, and was found in a garage. He was given another ceremonial funeral after it was recovered.
