Catherine the Great & Potemkin

This is a sweeping epic of sex, love, power, conquest and extravagance on a magnificent Russian scale. Not only was Catherine the Great and Potemkin's romance wildly passionate, but they were also probably the most successful political partnership of all, outstripping Antony and Cleopatra or Napoleon and Josephine. Their secret letters, which discuss other lovers, sex, wars, politics, arts, and health, are surely the most intimate and extraordinary ever written by an empress or politician.
