The woman is said to have visited the 89-year-old’s house in Hamburg with a letter filled with sweets, and then again with a card.
When she approached the house for a third time, security officers stepped in and arrested her under new German stalking laws.
The woman is said to be a huge fan of Schmidt, and told people she was his daughter in order to get close to his house.
She was referred to a psychiatric service, and released after an assessment found she did not pose a danger.
