In 2021 an era is coming to an end. After more than 16 years in office, Angela Merkel is standing down as Chancellor. Olaf Scholz took her place.
This is a good occasion to take a look at the personalities who have represented Germany as heads of government in this politically most powerful office.
The visualization examines the history of the German Chancellors since 1949 and traces their lives from their birth through their political careers to their chancellorship.
Technically this visualization is built with Figma using the Google Sheets plugin to auto-generate the visual encodings based on the values in a Google sheet. Inspiration from James Round' "228 years of POTUS".
