Doris Schröder-Köpf (born 5 August 1963) is a German journalist and the former and fourth wife of the former German chancellor Gerhard Schröder. She has worked for Bild and Focus, among the others.

Personal life[edit]

Köpf accompanied her then partner Sven Kuntze to New York City in 1990. They had a daughter named Klara (born 1991 in New York City) together, but separated very soon after her birth and Köpf moved back to Bavaria with her daughter. In 1997, Köpf married then Minister-President of Lower Saxony, Gerhard Schröder; they divorced in 2016.

In 2004, the couple adopted a three year old girl, Viktoria from Saint Petersburg, and a boy named Gregor in 2006.

Political career[edit]

Köpf currently holds the position of Director of Migration and Immigration issues for the State of Lower Saxony. Although this is an official state position, Köpf fulfills her duties in a voluntary role.
