John Tyler, The Three of Hearts
10th President of the United States, 1841—1845
John Tyler had a small chin, large ears and nose, and sunken cheeks, but he carried himself with dignity. He played the violin and fathered 14 children who lived to maturity, more than any other president. Tyler became president on Harrison’s death and served as president without a party. He relied on the advice of his famed “Kitchen Cabinet” of long time friends. When Tyler died, the government made no official notice of his passing.
