(FOX NEWS) -

Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has died after suffering a stroke.

"It is with great sadness that Mark and Carol Thatcher announced that their mother Baroness Thatcher died peacefully following a stroke this morning," Thatcher spokesperson Lord Bell said in a statement.

Thatcher, an outspoken woman known to many as "The Iron Lady," was 87. She led Britain's Conservatives to three election victories from 1979 to 1990, the longest continuous period in office by a British prime minister since the early 19th century.

"We have lost a great leader, a great prime minister and a great Briton,'' British Prime Minister David Cameron said in a statement.
