Catherine the Great or Catherine II was an inspirational figure behind the creation of this product. She was the Russian Empress and one of the most fascinating and powerful rulers ever. Despite her being an outsider, coming from the German city of Settin, she managed to reach the very top of the Russian Empire at the age of 33 when, with the guards’ support, she overthrew her husband, Peter III, and seized the power. The reign of Catherine the Great lasted for a period of 34 years and made her the longest-ruling female leader in the history of Russia. Her impact was so great that the period of her rule is known as the Catherinian Era, and is also called the Golden Age of the Russian Empire.
Catherine was beautiful and intelligent. Even though she seemed stately and imposing in some of her portraits, Catherine was barely five feet tall and described as friendly and approachable and had ‘a great desire to please’. She had a deep maternal instinct for ruling her country but she also believed that her people needed a firm hand. She was a powerful woman who was frequently the smartest person in the room, and she would downplay these traits for her own political survival. Apart from expanding and strengthening the Russian Empire, Catherine II implemented numerous important reforms in education and administration; and encouraged the development of economy, trade and the arts. One of Catherine’s efforts at social reform came in a form of the Nakaz, that outlined that capital punishment and torture is to be outlawed, and for every man to be declared equal.
After declaring herself the Sovereign ruler of the Russian Empire, Catherine successfully led Russia against the Ottoman Empire, securing Russia’s status as one of the most dominant countries in Europe. By the end of her reign, the Russian Empire had expanded by both conquest and diplomacy, adding about 200,000 square miles to its territory.
French philosopher Diderot described her as a woman ‘with the soul of Caesar and the seductiveness of Cleopatra’. Catherine once wrote, ‘My misfortune is that my heart cannot be happy, even for an hour, without love’. She reportedly gave herself totally to her lovers, who she worshiped. Catherine had between 10 and 20 official lovers. But contrary to the impression that she viewed them as mere boy toys, she in fact had fairly long term relations with them, ranging in length from one year to twelve years. She was always generous to them; gave them titles, land, and palaces, even after the affair had ended.
Catherine the Great treasured her roses in Tsarskoe Selo and had special guards assigned to protect them year-round from the harsh climate and accidents. Once an Imperial order had been given it was followed until rescinded. Over a century after Catherine died her successors have discovered a guard still stationed to protect a long vanished rose of Catherine's.
