Ceylon politician, the first female Prime Minister of Ceylon. She was elected to the post in 1960, following her husband's assassination, and served until 1977. Born to a wealthy and aristocratic family, she married Bandaranaike and had three kids. When her husband was killed on 9/25/1959, she entered the political ring, working with the Party until 1964. The following year, her Party had a political split and she was defeated, but she was re-elected in 1970 and 1975.

Bandaranaike, 84, died of a heart attack 10/10/2000 shortly after casting her ballot in the parliamentary election that saw her daughter, President Chandrika Kumaratunga, gain enough seats to form a new coalition government. She was buried in state at Colombo, Sri Lanka.
