I read a biography of Catherine the Great when I was younger that made me a lifetime fan - she was painted as the benevolent despot, of the mind that produced the American Revolution, but ruling with an eye toward conquest and what must have seemed to her to be pragmatism. I read many biographies of her when I was in high school.This book, unearthed at Recycled Books in Denton, Texas, laid out the backstory of three of her important female predecessors. Elizabeth had never been painted as anything more than a pathetic character in the biographies Id read before, so it was nice to see her more fleshed out as a person.It was well written enough.
