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.
