Catherine expanded the Russian empire, improved administration, pursued the policy of Westernization, and had the longest reign of a Russian woman.
Catherine the Great allowed people to rely on serfs, she overthrew Peter III of Russia, arrested Peter(her husband), and went along with revolts. Catherine was an awful lady, who took advantage of people and ruined people's life's. Ironically Catherine means purity. ALso she had many affairs.
