Margaret Thatcher, the "Iron Lady" who transformed Britain and inspired conservatives around the world by radically rolling back the state during her 11 years in power, died on Monday following a stroke. She was 87.
Britain's only woman prime minister, the unyielding, outspoken Thatcher led the Conservatives to three election victories, governing from 1979 to 1990, the longest continuous period in office by a British premier since the early 19th century. A grocer's daughter with a steely resolve, she was loved and loathed in equal measure.
Thatcher had been in poor health for months and had declined into dementia in her final years. She is survived by her twin children Carol and Mark Thatcher.
