CATHERINE THE GREAT
 
The daughter of Christian Augustus,
Prince of Anhalt-Zerbst,
Catherine was born at Stettin in 1729.
 
Fifteen years later the young Princess
set out to fulfill her diplomatically-arranged marriage
with the Grand Duke Peter,
heir to the Russian throne-
a marriage which proved miserably unhappy,
for her husband was ignorant,
cold-hearted and repulsive.
 
He treated her with savage contempt
and on his accession, tried to divorce her.
But the army, the clergy and the nation as a whole
were devoted to Catherine,
and Peter lost his life as the result
of a revolt in 1762.
 
As sole ruler,
Catherine governed with wisdom and power.
She was a magnificent horsewoman,
and loved to command her army
in field marshall’s uniform.
Her soldiers adored her,
and her people trusted her implicitly-
a trust which she did not betray.
