Margaret Thatcher, Britain’s Iron Lady, Dead at 87

Margaret Thatcher, the first woman ever to serve as prime minister of Great Britain and the longest-serving British prime minister of the 20th century, has died at age 87.

“It is with great sadness that Mark and Carol Thatcher announced that their mother Baroness Thatcher died peacefully following a stroke this morning,” Lord Timothy Bell, her former adviser, said today. “A further statement will be made later.”

Thatcher had significant health problems in her later years, suffering several small strokes and, according to her daughter, struggling with dementia.
