March is Women's History Month.

Born on May 2, 1729 in Prussia, Sophie Friederike Auguste von Anhalt-Zerbst-Dornburg, later known as Catherine II, and Catherine the Great, became Empress of Russia in 1762, and was instrumental in revitalizing Russia, and establishing it as a great European power.

During Catherine the Great’s reign, Russia was expanding rapidly due to both diplomacy and conquest; as a result of this expansion, Russian borders spread as far as the Black Sea and Central Europe.

Catherine the Great strongly supported both modernization, and westernization, an endeavor started by her husband prior to his death. She was also a great proponent of the Enlightenment in Europe, and she promoted the education of Russian citizens.

During the reenactment, Alisa Dupuy will regale with stories of Catherine's life and reign. 

Alisa Dupuy reenacted the role of Queen Victoria in August 2019 at Bridgewater Library.
