The German chancellor told British MPs that she had heard several times there were "very special expectations of my speech here today".
But Angela Merkel said both sides of the argument on Europe would be disappointed by her speech as she delivered an historic address to both Houses of Parliament and spoke about Britain relations with the EU.
Most of her speech was in German, but part of it was in English.
