Who Was the Imam of Fatima Al-Zahra?

How did Lady Fatima Al-Zahra (peace be upon her), the daughter of the Holy Prophet, die at such a young age? Why did she order her husband, Imam Ali, to bury her at night and in secret? Why, to this day, do we not know the exact location of her grave? Why does Sahih Al-Bukhari and Sahih Muslim report that she died angry at Abu Bakr? Why did she forbid Abu Bakr and Umar from praying over her body?
We all know the famous Hadith of Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him and his family): "Whoever dies without recognising the Imam of their time, dies the death of Jahiliyya (ignorance)." 
So who was the Imam of Lady Fatima (peace be upon her)? 
We know that she definitely did recognise an Imam, or else she - God forbid - died the death of ignorance. But we know that it was not Abu Bakr, as she died angry with Abu Bakr. So who was her Imam? If it was Imam Ali (peace be upon him), then what does that say about Abu Bakr's self-proclaimed, political leadership?
These are questions that our brothers and sisters who call themselves "Ahlus-Sunnah" must seek answers for.
