Angela Merkel has served as Germany's chancellor since 2005. In that long time she has worked with four US presidents, four French presidents and five British prime ministers, along with many other world leaders. She has maintained warm relations with several of her international counterparts, while with others the ties remained chilly. With her departure from the chancellery on the horizon, Merkel has received a considerable praise and recognition.
