Catherine the Great: Portrait of a Woman by Robert K. Massie
Catherine the Great: Portrait of a Woman

michael.g.coyne, January 3, 2012

GREAT bio on a historical figure who shaped the Russian monarchy. It tells the story of how Catherine worked her way from lower class nobility in Germany, to one of the greatest leader of her time.

Massie captures the reader's attention with his portrayal of this brilliant woman who was. You learn how Catherine cultivated relationships with the most enlightened luminaries to work her way to assume the title Catherine the Great to rule the Russian Empire.
