Chirac whose later years were clouded by corruption scandals served two terms as French president and took his country into a single European currency.

One of his major political reforms during his time as president was to cut the presidential term from seven to five years.

He opposed the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.

“President Jacques Chirac died this morning surrounded by his family, peacefully,” his son-in-law told AFP.
