Plot summary

In 1745 in Saint Petersburg, Empress Elizabeth is childless, and she appoints her nephew Peter Fedorovich as the heir to Russian throne, but he is born in Prussia and can hardly speak Russian.

Elizabeth decides to marry him with a princess, and when he would have a son she plans to take the boy to educate him to become the future emperor. Elizabeth chooses a wife for her nephew, German Princess Sophie Friederike Auguste von Anhalt-Zerbst-Dornburg. Sophia Frederike is sent to a distant and foreign land hoping to find happiness, but faces with the intrigues and plots of the Russian Imperial yard, the indifference of the spouse and the diabolical plans of the Empress. The girl takes the name Catherine Alexeevna (Yekaterina) and takes everything into her own hands to save herself and her children from the deadly danger, as the emperor Peter III desires to send her from the palace.

Soon, in July 1762, barely six months after becoming emperor, Peter commits the political error of retiring with his Holstein-born courtiers and relatives to Oranienbaum, leaving his wife in Saint Petersburg. On July 8 and 9, the Leib Guard revolts, deposes Peter from power, and proclaims Catherine the new monarch. The bloodless coup d'├ętat succeeds and Catherine becomes the new empress, and thus the Catherinian Era and the Golden Age of the Russian Empire begins.
