Summary:
This picture of the Russian ruler as a woman shows that Catherine was engulfed in such intrigue and conflict that she had to rule or to perish. The eventual murder of her husband, her dizzying succession of lovers were only the outward scandalous appurtenances of a court and an era that were still ... brutal and primitive.
