Former British Prime Minister Margaret "The Iron Lady" Thatcher passed away the morning of April 8, 2013 at the age of 87 after suffering a stroke at the Ritz hotel in London.

Thatcher, who ruled for 11 years starting in 1979, was best known for her strong will -- breaking unions, triumphing in a far-off war, and selling off state industries at a record pace - and left a legacy admired by supporters and lambasted by critics.
