This paper discusses Isabel De Madariaga's book, "Catherine the Great: A Short History" and shows that sometimes in history, events occur that are so out of the ordinary that they actually alter events that have not changed their course in decades or even generations. The paper explains that this is what took place when Catherine the Great, a woman and non-Russian, unexpectedly became Tsarina of Russia in 1762 without any claim to the throne, and goes on to tell her life story as De Madariaga described it. The paper notes that Catherine went unnoticed for many years until Isabel De Madariaga reintroduced Catherine in her book.
