A description of the Russian court life in the 18th century. Klyuchevski writes about Catherina the Great’s rise to power, her personal life and her (inter)national policies. The book is based on memoirs of Catherina herself and other writings from people who lived during her time. A colorful book for those interested in a less well-known part of the Russian history.
