Anna Eleanor Roosevelt (/ ˈ ɛ l ɪ n ɔːr ˈ r oʊ z ə v ɛ l t /; Octo – November 7, ) was an American political figure, diplomat and activist. She served as the First Lady of the United States from March 4, , to Ap , during her husband President Franklin D. Roosevelt's four terms in office, making her the longest-serving First Lady of the United States.
