Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher died Monday at the age of 87, leaving behind -- among many things -- memories of one of the more notable special relationships between leaders of the United Kingdom and United States.

Thatcher served as prime minister for all eight years of Ronald Reagan's presidency. Together they cooperated closely on issues ranging from international war to conservative domestic policies, and while doing so, they formed a close personal friendship. While that relationship reportedly had its share of rough patches, the strong bond between two politicians, sometimes called ideological soul-mates, was often evident through photographs.

Below, pictures of the two world leaders:
