Publisher Description:
Moscow September 22, 1762: five hundred gleaming church bells rang out their message that an important historical event was taking place. Catherine was being crowned Catherine II, Empress of Russia. The imperial purple mantle was draped over her shoulders, the golden crown-used to crown Russian rulers for six centuries-was placed upon her head, and finally, she was handed the royal orb and scepter, investing her with power and leadership over Russia. As Catherine sat through the ceremony, her thoughts drifted back to the days when she was still known as Princess Sophia of Anhalt-Zerbst and spoke German. This was before she agreed to marry the heir to the Russian throne. Catherine's story is one of endurance and a determination to succeed. It is brilliantly told by Vargie Johnson. This sixth biographical novel in the series "What Made Them Famous?" impresses the reader with Catherine's steadfastness in reaching her goals.
