Show: Catherine the Great
Airdate: 28 October 2019
Genre: Drama, Miniseries
The show “Catherine the Great” deals with the tale of Europes’ most powerful monarch who ruled about two hundred and sixty years ago. She wasn’t just a monarch; she was also a woman. This monarch ended up talking about the title of Catherine the Great because of all she achieved.
Catherine’s achievements are far too many; she was actually born a German princess, married off at the age of 15 to her second cousin Tsar Peter well. The self-taught woman Russian gave birth to a son and successfully staged a militant coup against her despotic husband, Peter. They say she may have had Peter murdered with the help of her lover. Catherine didn’t just stop there. She ruled the worlds’ largest empire for 34 years.
Catherine The Great is a 4 part miniseries that details the journey of Catherine in her war to consolidate power. She seized the throne in 1762. The previous episode gave us a glimpse of Catherine’s battle against her enemies; she is just beginning; her enemies saw her as an illegitimate usurper. Her son Paul (Joseph Quinn) wants to replace her; her secret lover (Grigory Orlov (Richard Roxburgh) is unhappy because she refuses to accept him in publics’ eyes. But Catherine will not stop; we know that because history tells us that.
Catherine the Great airs on HBO.
