1774. The rule of the great and mighty Ekaterina is threatened. The Russo-Turkish War continues, draining the Empire’s treasury. Numerous pretenders appear with claims to the throne. The Peasants’ War is in full swing – a war led by Yemelyan Pugachev, who passed himself off as Peter III. There is danger brewing inside the palace, too: the noblemen want to pass the throne on to her oldest son, Paul. Ekaterina’s personal life is troubled. She has lost hope of having a child with Prince Potemkin. She has new love interests, new favorites. But the biggest and most important love of the Empress is Russia itself. Ekaterina has to make decisions that determine the fate of her throne and her empire.
