Hugo Chavez's death rocked the world. Since being elected President of Venezuela 14 years ago he has been one of the most controversial leaders of this century. He was beloved and detested by many and his influence was felt well beyond Venezuela's borders, from Ecuador to Iran, as he revived the leftist movement in Latin America.

He died after a long battle with cancer on March 5, 2013.

Chavez tended to make headlines. He was quoted, reviewed and analyzed constantly by foreign media and he was even portrayed on an episode of CBS's "The Good Wife." Yet his death will probably be the most documented moment of his reign.
