He ascended to the position after leading an army coup in 1954. His 35-year-long rule, marked by an uninterrupted period of repression in his country, is the longest in modern South American history. Stroessner's rule is ranked 21st-longest among other non-royal national leaders since 1900 and made him one of the world's longest-serving non-royal heads of state.
