From the Internet Movie Database:

In this romanticized biography, a small German principality's unexperienced princess, Catherine, becomes the bride of czarevitch Peter, the mad and abusive nephew and heir of the Russian czarina Elisabeth, from whom she learns the cynical ropes of wielding absolute imperial power at any cost ... After Elisabeth's death, she quickly moves to seize power with military and courtier support and works to enlarge and modernize the empire... [ [ "Catherine the Great" ~] ]
