It is rather pathetic, isn't it?
Intrigued by Prince of Poland's query, I began some research to see if there was any rumor about a child from the short-lived, unconsumated marriage, and found nothing.
So, what happened to the Czarina Catherine? She was married to the Czar, afterall--even though he died--but that wasn't her fault.
