Catherine II, a Great Russian Queen
by Maria Galkina
My hero is Catherine II. She was a great queen in Russian history so she is also called Catherine the Great. She was clever and strong. Catherine was an independent person and always did everything herself. She studied philosophy, policy and different languages so she became a brilliant politician. She wasn't Russian but she spoke Russian very well and tried hard to develop Russia. During her reign, Catherine the Great expanded Russia's borders to the Black Sea and into central Europe. Catherine II knew Russian history. She was a great diplomat. I want to be like Catherine II.
