At the time, Richard Gutteridge, director of Savills' Sloane Street office, said, "If only the walls could speak, one could almost imagine Ronald Reagan and other heads of state sitting in their dining room with Baroness Thatcher."

Thatcher was Prime Minister from 1979 to 1990. During this time she campaigned for the neoliberal economy and started the sales law, which encourages people to buy their social housing.

Margaret Thatcher: A Life After Prime Minister

Margaret Thatcher was the UK's first female Prime Minister and served from 1979 to 1990. During her tenure as prime minister, she reduced the influence of the trade unions and reduced public services.

She was referred to as the "Iron Lady" by a Soviet journalist – a term that persisted after it was associated with her uncompromising politics and leadership style.

Lady Thatcher defied communism and launched the Falklands War to maintain control of the islands in the region.

She was pressured by members of her own Conservative Party to resign after her government cut income tax rates to post-war lows.

She pushed for an unpopular “community tax” (also known as a survey tax) that set a flat rate for every person in the country. There were numerous street protests and many people simply refused to pay. It was abolished in 1993 and replaced by the council tax.

She officially resigned on November 28, 1990 after trying to ensure John Major, not Heseltine, would replace her.

Lady Thatcher remained in Parliament until 1992. At this point, she entered the House of Lords and started writing her memoir.

In July 1992 she was hired by the large tobacco company Philip Morris as a "geopolitical advisor" for $ 250,000 per year and an annual contribution of $ 250,000 to their foundation. Thatcher made $ 50,000 for every speech she gave.

After Tony Blair was elected in 1994, she praised him as "probably the most formidable Labor leader since Hugh Gaitskell".

She stopped performing in public after suffering a series of minor strokes in the early 2000s and began suffering from dementia.

In 2002 she was asked what her greatest legacy was and replied, 'Tony Blair and New Labor. We forced our opponents to change their minds. & # 39;

Later that year, she was ranked 16th in the BBC's poll of the 100 greatest Britons.

In 2011 she became the subject of an award-winning biographical film, "The Iron Lady," which portrayed her rise and fall in politics.

She died on April 8, 2013, at the age of 87, after another stroke.

She received a solemn funeral with full military honors and a service in St. Paul's Cathedral.
