I thought I said it in my previous post :) June 12th is the Russian Unity day, or simply the day of Russia. And that`s what we are going to celebrate online :)

russian history

Postby russian_guy » February 27th, 2010 9:54 am

ok here is something i think we could talk on here

catherine the great:
one of the greatest rulers of all time. taken from her home in germans and brought to breed in russia she let people used her but made allies and ended up take the throne right infront of peters eyes. what do you think was this a good thing or bad? what do you think of her?

Hi russianguy,

If you're interested in Catherine the Great, I can recommend this book - a very informative but readable biography of her life.

Catherine the Great

I heard a horse dropped on her, killed her...but, I guess I better read Eddie's book to verify if that was true or not. :wink:

OK, googled Catherine the great's death and this is what...

Postby Miiszhah » March 9th, 2010 12:00 pm

http://europeanhistory.about.com/od/cat ... myths1.htm

The Myths:
1. Catherine was crushed to death by a horse whilst attempting to have sex with it (usually the collapse of a harness/lifting mechanism is blamed).
2. Catherine died on the toilet.
The Truth (1):
Catherine died in bed of illness; there were no equines involved and a Catherine/horse nexus was never attempted.

Indeed, that horse incident is not true. Perhaps it happened to Catherine 1st, who became ruler after her husband Peter the Great died.
