Notes: ^a At the time of Manuel L. Quezon's birth, the town of Baler was a part of the military district of El Principe, governed under the province of Nueva Ecija. In 1902, the administration of Baler and other nearby coastal towns was transferred to the province of Tayabas, which was renamed Quezon in honor of the former president in 1946. The town of Baler now is the capital of the province of Aurora (named after Quezon's wife), which was a sub-province of Quezon from 1951 until it was made a separate province in 1973. ^b Metropolitan Manila (though not a province), is highlighted as the birthplace of Joseph Estrada, although at the time of his birth, Metro Manila as a geopolitical entity did not exist yet. ^c The city of Manila (birthplace of Joseph Estrada) was an independent city not under the administration of any province when they were born.
