I am very fascinated by Russia and the Romanovs, but by watching the trailers here in the thread, I am afraid, Catherine the Great will be depicted as some super autocrat or as we would say today: Putin. But with love affairs...

And I have already my doubts about the omnipotence of Putin! And Putin has the Internet and Telephone and the Secret Service and the Police and the National Guard to direct the vast country Russia.

Then how could Catherine the Great be so allmighty? Without all that!

Imho the Great Empress was more of an enabler and picker of good men. Something she could do, because she liked men... - and threw them away, if they became useless.

But she came into her position, because she was the best agreement of the Russian nobles! And she had to stay that...
