Konrad Adenauer 1876 -- 1967

Statesman in Germany. First chancellor of the Federal Republic from 1949-1963, a period which spans most of the preliminary phase of the Cold War.

In this period, West Germany was politically separated from East Germany, the DDR. Adenauer was a co-founder of the CDU party.

Adenauer got marriage proposals into his 80's. He used to tell his secretary, "Put them in the non-aggression pact file."
