Former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher, the "Iron Lady" who shaped a generation of British politics, died following a stroke on Monday at the age of 87. The Iron Lady, who led Britain from 1979 to 1990, suffered from dementia and has appeared rarely in public in recent years. She was the only woman to hold this position in Great Britain and the first woman to become Prime-Minister in a European country. The Iron Lady had been in her position for the longest period in the 20th century.
