Angela Dorothea Merkel was a daughter of Herlind Jentzsch, a teacher of Latin and English, and Horst Kasner. Merkel moved to the Eastern Germany where she was a part of the Free German Youth (FDJ), the movement sponsored by the Socialist Unity Party. She went to the University of Leipzig, where she studied physics from 1973 to 1978, and later studied and subsequently worked at the Central Institute for Physical Chemistry of the Academy of Sciences in Berlin-Adlershof from 1978 to 1990.

Merkel started her career in politics in 1990, and was appointed the Minister for Women and Youth under Chancellor Helmut Kohl from 1991 to 1994. She was later promoted to Minister for the Environment during Kohl’s reign from 1994 to 1998, and in 2000 Angela became the Leader of the Christian Democratic Union, and after Helmut Kohl lost the election in 1998 to Gerhard Schroder, Merkel challenged for the coaltion leadership in 2002, but lost to Wolfgang Schrauble, hjowever, Angela Merkel won the 2005 national elections and succeeded Schroder as the new Chancellor, becoming the first woman Chancellor in Germany’s history.

She also won the 2009 and 2013 federal elections and is still the Chancellor of Germany. In 2007, Merkel was nominated the President of the European Council, and she became one of the most powerful people in the world. In fact, the famous Forbes Magazine’s List of The World’s Most Powerful People ranked her in the 2nd position right behind Vladimir Putin and ahead Barack Obama. In 2015, Merkel was named as the Person of the Year by Time magazine, and more recently, in May 2016, she was named the most powerful woman in the world, and is clearly the dominant figure in the European Union and the Euro Zone.

Angela Merkel has been pragmatic in both foreign and domestic policies, encouraging relationships based on trade with other countries, but insisting that Germany is a Christian country and immigrants should adapt accordingly. She showed support to Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko during the Crimea conflict in 2014, and subsequent rebellion in the eastern Ukraine.

Regarding her personal life, Angela Merkel married Ulrich Merkel in 1977 while both were studying physics; however, they divorced in 1982, but Angela kept Ulrich’s surname and is still using it today. Her second marriage was with quantum chemist, Professor Joachim Sauer. They met in the early 80’s and married in 1998. Merkel doesn’t have children, but she is the stepmother of Sauer’s two sons. She is a big football fan and is often in attendance when the German national team plays. Merkel suffered a fractured bone in the pelvis after an accident during cross-country skiing in Switzerland in early 2014. She has a fear of the dogs, as she was attacked by one in 1995.

#Quote
1 If the euro fails, Europe fails.
2 It certainly is dangerous that there are only a few clubs left in Europe that can afford to pay millions. At the end of the day however, the spectators decide the rates of pay - by watching the games and consuming the goods and services advertised on sports TV programmes.
3 Eurobonds are absolutely wrong. In order to bring about common interest rates, you need similar competitiveness levels, similar budget situations. You don't get them by collectivizing debts.
4 On the one hand, the financial projection is on the agenda - we will see if this problem can be resolved or not. I think it is a right idea to stage a special summit, which would deal with the question of priorities of European politics.
5 At this time - we're in a dramatic crisis - euro bonds are precisely the wrong answer. They lead us into a debt union, not a stability union. Each country has to take its own steps to reduce its debt.
6 I will not let anyone tell me we must spend more money. This crisis did not come about because we issued too little money but because we created economic growth with too much money and it was not sustainable growth.
7 Personally, I think that for example the chemical directive in its present form does too much damage to the chemical industry - especially the medium sized businesses - and will hurt our worldwide competitiveness.
8 That makes me think of the 2002 World Cup Final above all else. Nobody thought at the time that our team would get through to the Final against Brazil. We should remember that this summer.
9 So Europe needs to be competitive and we also need to be competitive if we wish to remain an interesting economic partner for the United States. This has to be done on the basis of strength, of competitiveness.
10 I think that the EU with the Lisbon agenda has put the right emphasis on growth and employment.
11 From this experience we have learned that in a big party it is important to have the necessary and often controversial discussions on policy issues such as the health system while in opposition.
12 It is a fact that, if I single out Germany, our rate of growth is too low and we have very high unemployment.
13 We're saying this to both countries: We want a two-state solution. We want a Jewish state of Israel and alongside a independent Palestinian state. Unilateral measures are not helping at all to bring about this cause, and we agree that we wish to cooperate very closely on this, because as we both say, time is of the essence.
14 I see nothing that points to a recession in Germany. But I see considerable long-term tasks ahead of us that have to do with markets regaining confidence in Europe and that have a lot to do with reducing debt.
15 In Europe it is particularly important that we build good relations to everyone who holds political responsibility because Europe can only be build together.
16 Herr Schroder has conducted two electoral campaigns, and he is doing it again now, by not telling people what is really necessary. He keeps avoiding the difficult and uncomfortable issues, those that imply changes and therefore provoke discussions.
17 The people in East Germany have lived through so many changes in the last 15 years like never before in the country, and they did this often with great enthusiasm. But in the West we also have a high degree of transformations.
18 The markets want to force us to do certain things. That we won't do. Politicians have to make sure that we're unassailable, that we can make policy for the people.
19 Thus, the focus on this main political goal must become more visible in EU politics and to achieve this, we need a political impulse. It must be clear what the priorities on the agenda are.
20 I am not an expert in this field but I do try to keep up to date with the Bundesliga. And I do follow World Cups and European Championships more closely.
21 I don't carry any early childhood trauma around with me, if that's what you're hinting at. The story of the bicycles - and there were three of them which were stolen from me - I've dealt with it well.
22 I felt really sorry for Oliver Kahn. Up to that point he had made lots of saves for the German team. Of course he could have caught the ball but it just happened. It was bad luck. In that situation, you need to be very strong psychologically to carry on.
23 For a few years, more people have been leaving our country than entering it. Wherever it is possible, we must lower the entry hurdles for those who bring the country forward.
24 It will not be possible to solve the current crisis with euro bonds.
25 In the German football team players from different clubs need to get on with each other both on and off the pitch. In the grand coalition Christian Democrats and Social Democrats sit in the same boat and need to pull in the same direction.
26 The euro is our common fate, and Europe is our common future.
27 If we remind ourselves of the fact that every fifth American today rightly points and perhaps also with a certain degree of pride to his German ancestry or her German ancestry, we can safely say that we, indeed, share common roots.
28 At the beginning of the 60's our country called the foreign workers to come to Germany and now they live in our country. We kidded ourselves a while, we said: 'They won't stay, sometime they will be gone.' But this isn't reality.
29 Let me say this on a personal note. Without the United States of America, I would in all probably not be able to stand here before you today.
30 We feel bound to the Christian image of humanity - that is what defines us. Those who do not accept this are in the wrong place here.
31 Today's Russia is not to be compared with the Soviet Union of back then.
32 I feel sorry sometimes for these sportsmen and women who put in just as much effort as the footballers. For example, athletes train at least as hard as footballers but have to be happy if they can earn enough to finance a decent education.
33 Politicians have to be committed to people in equal measures.
34 It is nonsense to say that Germans are unable to change.
35 The problem is, of course, that these interest groups are all asking for changes, but their enthusiasm for change rapidly disappears when it affects the core of their own interests.
36 Above all it is important to point out that we can only maintain our prosperity in Europe if we belong to the most innovative regions in the world.
37 Whoever decides to dedicate their life to politics knows that earning money isn't the top priority.
38 Spying among friends is never acceptable.
39 This multicultural approach, saying that we simply live side by side and live happily with each other has failed. Utterly failed.
40 I said, yet again, for Germany, Europe is not only indispensable, it is part and parcel of our identity. We've always said German unity, European unity and integration, that's two parts of one and the same coin. But we want, obviously, to boost our competitiveness.
41 That is why everyone in politics, and we do it, must make sure that they do not depend on one single interest group. A good compromise is one where everybody makes a contribution.
42 When it comes to human dignity, we cannot make compromises.
43 The question is not whether we are able to change but whether we are changing fats enough.
44 I have just explained my idea of how a constructive period of reflection, one that would send a clear message to the citizens of Europe: You should now what our priorities are. For Germany this means: Unemployment is one of one of our biggest problems.
45 Nobody in Europe will be abandoned. Nobody in Europe will be excluded. Europe only succeeds if we work together.
46 The willingness to learn new skills is very high.
47 Overcoming the Cold War required courage from the people of Central and Eastern Europe and what was then the German Democratic Republic, but it also required the steadfastness of Western partner over many decades when many had long lost hope of integration of the two Germanys and Europe.
48 As politicians we have to react to the fact that many people do not feel that they can relate to the EU.
49 [observation, 2014] The possibility of total digital surveillance touches the essence of our life. It is thus an ethical task that goes far beyond far beyond the politics of security. Millions of people who live in undemocratic states are watching very closely how the world's democracies react to threats to their security : whether they act circumspectly, in sovereign self-assurance, or undermine precisely what in the eyes of these millions of people makes them so attractive - freedom and the dignity of the individual
