LONDON - Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher is dead at age 87.

A former spokesman says Thatcher died this morning of a stroke.

During 11 bruising years as prime minister, Thatcher found a fellow believer in former U.S. President Ronald Reagan, transformed her country by a ruthless dedication to free markets and infuriated European allies.

Thatcher retired from public engagements in 2002 following a series of small strokes, and was only occasionally seen in public since then.
