And today's topic is the lovers of Catherine the Great. We already catherine about her husband in previous episodes. I don't know if you remember, sex the she deposed and then sort of had killed.
And he was pretty awful, and yet her son had him dug up and buried next to her. Spending eternity next to someone you despise has to be it's own kind of life.
So who would she rather be next too. Great going the be taking a list of a whole list of fellows in fact.
And the fist is Sergei Saltykov. We mentioned him in a previous episode, in this three-part Catherine the Great series. It was possibly by him that she had her son, although possibly also by her husband.
