Some countries have a title, official or unofficial, that is or can be translated as first lady. The title is not normally used for the wife of a head of government who is not also head of state.
First Gentleman is used where the head of state's spouse has been a man, such as the Philippines or Malta. While there has never been a male spouse of a U.S. President, "First Gentleman" is used in the United States for the husband of a governor.
