Publisher's Summary

Prize-winning historian and biographer, Carolly Erickson has created an eminently readable biography that recognizes the humanity of Great Catherine-Empress of Russia-with her majesty and immense capability. Dispelling some of the myths surrounding her voracious sexual appetite, the biographer portrays Catherine as a lonely woman far ahead of her time-achieving greatness in an era when women were executed on a husband's whim.

a truly dreadful book

boring, repetitive, reads like a collage of notes gathered from history books. The. reader: up jolly voice: oh here comes a happy bit: gloomy voice; oh, more misery.
