Becoming Catherine the Great
Ekaterina, the daughter of an impoverished Prussian prince, is about to marry the futur Tsar of Russia, Peter III.
While she dreams of love, the Tsar prefers war games and shows little interest in women. Her girlish innocence soon disappears and her tender nature is replaced by cold fury. She channels her loneliness into a lust for power.
The aggrieved young woman would go on to conquer both land and hearts, handpicking grenadiers to become her lovers, suppressing rebellions and conversing with prominent European philosophers.
She will become Catherine the Great.
