Little Jacqueline Bouvier: 29 Adorable Photos of Jacqueline Kennedy When She Was a Child

Born 1929 in Southampton, New York, Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis was the wife of the 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy, and First Lady of the United States from 1961 until his assassination in 1963.

As a child, Onassis was  a bright, curious and occasionally mischievous child. One of her elementary school teachers described her as "a darling child, the prettiest little girl, very clever, very artistic, and full of the devil."

Onassis enjoyed a privileged childhood of ballet lessons at the Metropolitan Opera House and French lessons beginning at age of 12. Like her mother, Onassis loved riding and was highly skilled on horseback. She won a national junior horsemanship competition at the age of 11 in 1940.
