The Russian Empresses

   The Russian Empresses

The history of Russia is exceedingly rich in dramatic characters. The story of no country is better stocked with material for the novelist and the playwright. In fact, there is an abundance of such literature, but, unfortunately, it is chiefly written in a language almost invariably ignored in the educational institutions of the English-speaking races and therefore is a sealed book. Take, for example, the career of Catherine I, which we are about to consider.
