Historical Misconceptions

Empress Catherine II had an astonishing number of lovers
Empress Catherine the Great (1729-1796), who came from an impoverished German ducal family, removed her dim-witted and unpopular husband, Peter III, by a bloodless coup. Surprising economic reforms, measures introducing Western culture and unhoped-for Russian territorial expansion, were realized by this seemingly weak woman in a male-dominated age.
Catherine was said to have been a nymphomaniac, who also fornicated with animals, and had a total of 300 lovers. We have knowledge of 12 lovers during her 67-year life, with all of whom, based on her letters, she conducted intimate affairs, and had no more than one lover at a time.
