The news magazine has named German Chancellor Merkel its Person of the Year for 2015. She is the third post-war Chancellor to be named, after Konrad Adenauer (1953) and Willy Brandt (1970).
“For asking more of her country than most politicians would dare, for standing firm against tyranny as well as expedience and for providing steadfast moral leadership in a world where it is in short supply, Angela Merkel is TIME’s Person of the Year.” -Time Editor Nancy Gibbs
