Best Answer

George Washington met the requirements for the office, having been born in what became American territory (Virginia), living his whole life in American territory (the minimum is fourteen years), and being over thirty-five at the time of the first election. Martin Van Buren was the first President to be born after the Declaration of Independence. John Tyler was the first President to be born after the ratification of the US Constitution in 1788.
