Catherine The Great

The court of Catherine, her lovers, her fascination with the ideas of Voltaire and the European Enlightenment, her flirtation with democracy and her later rejection of these ideas after the horrors of the French Revolution, are all described in the 'Catherine' chapter of RUSSKA, where the empress herself also makes a brief appearance.
