Brigitte Marie-Claude Macron (French pronunciation: [bri.ʒit ma.ʁi klodə ma.kʁɔ᷉]; née Trogneux, pronounced: [tʁɔ.ɲø], previously Auzière, French pronunciation: [o.zjɛːʁ]; born 13 April 1953) is the wife and former high school teacher of Emmanuel Macron, the President of the French Republic.

In 2015, to help support her husband in his political career, she ended her career as a teacher of literature at the elite lycée Saint-Louis de Gonzague in Paris.

Macron ran for the city council of Truchtersheim in Bas-Rhin in 1989, but lost. It would be the only time she would run for office.

In 2017, Brigitte Macron played an active role in her husband's presidential campaign; a top adviser was quoted as saying that "her presence is essential for him". Emmanuel Macron stated that upon his winning of the French presidency, his wife "will have the role that she always had with me, she will not be hidden".
