Angela Merkel

 

In 2005, Germans chose Angela Merkel as their first female Chancellor, or head of government, because they knew that they could rely on her steady hand. Merkel was a physicist before going on to a second career in politics. As Germany's leader, she has become a worldwide political force. (1954—present)
