In the fourth of the "Women Who Were Kings" series, we follow a German princess' travels to the vast, distant lands of Russia, where she would be joined in a loveless marriage to its future Emperor. Neglected by her husband and refusing to accept a barren future where she has no influence, the woman who became known to the world as Catherine the Great would seize the throne from her husband in a bloodless coup, and go on to lead Imperial Russia into its Golden Age.

Catherine always understood how to build alliances, and more than that, she was also a tireless reformer who lived to work. Steering her fellow countrymen into doing what she wanted was one of her best skills, but it was also an environment conducive to her and her methods despite her lack of a true Russian background. Still, what were her most deep-rooted personal fears, and her most glorious public achievements? What is her story?

Properly researched, lavishly illustrated, and with footnotes and a bibliography, this graphic novel biography is suited for anyone with an interest the Russian Empress who brought her country into the height of its European influence. For Ages 10+.
