Victoria "Vicky" Syquia Quirino-Gonzalez (née Quirino; May 18, 1931 – November 29, 2006) was the second daughter of Philippine President Elpidio Quirino. Since her father was a widower, she served as First Lady of the Philippines, becoming the youngest bearer of the title at the age of 16.
She assumed the title in 1948 when President Manuel Roxas died and her father, then Vice-President of the Philippines succeeded him. When her father's term ended in 1953, she was succeeded by Luz Magsaysay.
Following tradition, Quirino-González became involved in socio-civic activities. She was the second Presidential daughter to have a debut in Malacañan Palace, and again made history as the first Presidential daughter to be wed in the Palace when she married her first husband, Luis "Chito" González.
Later years and death
She was silently but actively involved in supporting social causes in her later years. She died on 29 November 2006 at the age of 75.
Her grandchildren include Victoria Álvarez de Toledo y González, María Álvarez de Toledo y González and Lucía Álvarez de Toledo y González, daughters of her own daughter María Victoria González Quirino and Manuel Álvarez de Toledo y Mencos (the Marqués de Miraflores, V Duque de Zaragoza, XIII conde de los Arcos, three times a grandee of Spain)
