New Robert Massie book

Catherine The Great: First She Read, Then She Ruled : NPR

"How did a German princess from a minor noble family become the empress of Russia, and win the praise of Voltaire, Montesquieu, Diderot and other giants of The Enlightenment? In Catherine the Great: Portrait of a Woman, Robert Massie explains the story of Catherine II, who ruled Russia for 34 years.

So how does a German teenager become the empress of Russia?"

In 1785, Catherine II took up playwriting.
Her efforts were produced at the palace, albeit under a pseudonym.
The epithet "Great" was bestowed on Catherine II by her own nobility in the third year of her reign.
