In the last will and testament, which is his final will, made in 1982, President Marcos wished to be buried at the Libingan ng mga Bayani contrary to rumors that he wanted instead to be buried beside his mother, Dona Josefa Edralin Marcos in Batac, Ilocos Norte.

The last will and testament did not actually categorically said that President Ferdinand Marcos wanted to be buried in the Libingan ng mga Bayani: "I desire that my remains be buried according to the rites established by law and with dignity suitable to my position and other personal circumstances."
