Former German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder Set To Wed 5th Wife::

Former German Chancellor Gerhard Schröder is to marry his South Korean girlfriend later in the year. Kim So-yeon is nearly three decades younger than Schröder, who has been married four times.

The 73-year-old former Chancellor Gerhard Schröder announced on Thursday that he was to marry his partner Kim So-yeon in a ceremony later this year.

The former Social Democratic Party (SPD) chancellor, who was in office from 1998 to 2005, has had a string of wives, most recently divorcing fourth spouse Doris Schröder-Köpf in 2016. He remains a divisive figure within the SPD.

- The relationship between Schröder and Kim came to light in September last year, when the former chancellor's fourth wife Doris Schröder-Köpf claimed the South Korean had played a role in the breakup.

- The couple created something of a stir last weekend when they were spotted dining out at a South Korean restaurant in Berlin's fashionable Kreuzberg district.

- Schröder had already been dubbed "Audi Man" on account of his four marriages and the auto maker's four-ring car badge, while "The Lord of the Rings" is an alternative moniker. Now he will have the full Olympic set.

- Kim (not to be confused with the actress of the same name) has a daughter from a previous marriage while Schröder has two adopted children with his last wife.

In a press conference announcing the engagement, Gerhard Schröder said most details of the wedding were yet to be decided.

"I've already met her family," he told a press conference in Seoul. "The wedding will probably be held in autumn and the exact venue and timing will be decided later."

Schröder said he and Kim planned to split their time between Germany and South Korea.

"I have tremendous interest in South Korea's history, culture and arts and ... would like to have more opportunities to learn more about South Koreans and the country's heritage," he said.

In an interview with German society magazine Bunte, Kim said "Gerhard Schröder and I will find a middle way to live in both cultures without ostentation," she said.

Schröder was married to Eva Schubach from 1969 to 1972 and Anne Taschenmacher from 1972 to 1984. Neither was a major public figure and they were married to Schröder before he came to real public prominence.

He was married to Hiltrud Schwetje, a committed anti-nuclear campaigner, from 1984 to 1997 during which time Schröder became state premier of Lower Saxony. Their breakup was extensively documented by the press.

Schröder's fourth marriage was to journalist and politician Doris Schröder-Köpf and the couple adopted two children, a son and daughter, from Russia.
