Annotation:
In this comprehensive biography, noted historian Robert K. Massie turns his attention to one of the most storied figures in history, Empress Catherine, who deposed her own husband to rule over Russia for more than three decades. An expert horsewoman and military leader, devotee of the Enlightenment philosophers, and romantic partner of Gregory Potemkin (among several other paramours), Catherine provides more than ample fodder for her biographer. Massie is known for his biographies of major Russian figures, many of which have become bestsellers--including NICHOLAS AND ALEXANDRA.

Praise

"Massie delivers a fascinating account of dog-eat-dog politics in 18th-century Europe and the larger-than-life Russian empress who gave as good as she got." 10/01/2011

"Massie immerses the reader in Russian history and culture. The author . . . is clearly enraptured by his extraordinary heroine and by the end, so is the reader. Even bone-deep anti-monarchists will find themselves cheering on this absolute despot. What a woman, what a world, what a biography." - Deirdre Donahue 11/12/2011
