Ivana Trump played an integral role in the creation of Donald Trump’s real estate empire, according to the New York Times, working alongside the future President on some of his flashiest developments, including Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue and the defunct Trump Taj Mahal Casino in Atlantic City.

The power couple’s divorce was finalized in 1992.
