Upon succeeding office, Tyler was nicknamed "His Accidency" by his detractors. He was a longtime Democratic-Republican who was elected to the Vice Presidency on the Whig ticket, so he was rather unpopular and had several disagreements with his former political supporters and had a tenuous relationship with his predecessor during his short Vice Presidency. Tyler declared that he was now the President rather than the ''Acting'' President. He vetoed several of the bills brought to the White House and, as a result, most of his Cabinet resigned and Tyler was eventually expelled from the party because he couldn't cooperate with them. In fact, the first presidential veto to be overriden by Congress was one of his. He's also the first president to have an impeachment attempt directed against him -- on the somewhat thin reasoning that actually ''using'' his veto counted as an abuse of power, even though over half of the previous presidents had vetoed at least one bill[[note]]specifically, five out of nine used it -- John Adams, Jefferson and John Quincy Adams could have but never did, and Harrison never even had the ''chance'' to approve or veto any bills, due to Congress not being in session during his four weeks in office[[/note]], and UsefulNotes/AndrewJackson had vetoed more by the same point of his presidency -- but the initial vote failed 83-127, so that's probably why you never heard of it. However, he was responsible for the annexation of UsefulNotes/{{Texas}}, which is something noteworthy. He signed the Webster-Ashburton Treaty with the United Kingdom (which resolved border issues between the U.S. and British Canada in the northeast, between Maine and New Brunswick), the Treaty of Wanghia with China (which gave America the same trade rights that the European powers were starting to get in China), and added Florida to the Union on the last full day of his presidency. After [[UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar the South seceded]], Tyler was elected to the Confederate House of Representatives but died before taking office. He was buried with his coffin draped in the Confederate flag, making him the only president buried under a "foreign" flag, and the only one whose death was not officially recognised in Washington.

He fathered eight children with his first wife, who died while he was in office, and remarried while he was president, making him the first President to get married during his Presidency, fathering seven more children with his second wife (whom he married after [[ParentalAbandonment her father was killed in front of both of them]] by [[ExplosiveOverclocking an exploding experimental cannon]] and she [[{{Fainting}} fainted]] [[CrashIntoHello into his arms]]).

President. He is not helped in this sense by having a relatively bland name, unlike, for example, UsefulNotes/MillardFillmore.


->''"As Vice President, Tyler drowned [[UsefulNotes/WilliamHenryHarrison President Harrison]] in an Executives Only bathing pond. Everyone suspected a Savage assassin, and Tyler assumed the throne of America, along with the empty husband/father position in Harrison's grieving family. Tyler's achievements were overshadowed by his apparent disbelief in witches, which lead to his transformation into one of the rare breeds of horse that Congress then had deemed fuckable by law.
