She is the only female leader at the G8 summit and is well used to high-powered meetings with men in suits.
But on Monday night, German Chancellor Angela Merkel took on a new role - the lady of the lake.
Mrs Merkel took a boat trip across Lough Erne, in County Fermanagh, as she cruised from the hotel hosting the G8 to speak to German media at the Manor House Hotel, near the village of Killadeas. Julie McCullugh reports.
