Much has been made of assessing the contribution of political leaders to making their place in history. This article examines leaders from Europe including Britain, Germany and France and makes a judgement on whether the expansion of the European Union and its processes has begun to take away the contribution made by politicians of individual countries. The paper also draws upon European Integration theory in order to show how the European Integration process is influencing politics in the member states.
