"Eighteen years of boredom and solitude made her read plenty of books. Arrived on the throne of Russia she desired its good and sought to procure for her subjects happiness, liberty, and prosperity. She forgave easily and hated no one; indulgent, easy to live with, naturally cheerful, with a republican soul and a good heart, she had friends: she found work easy, she liked good society and the arts."
