Empress, Novembre 1801
Copyright 2009 Stuart Koblentz
At some point we all have inner doubts. Do we measure up to our own high standards? Do we measure up to their standards? Such was the theme of the self-esteem issue of Empress Magazine in November 1801. Its one thing to be the Empress, its something all together different to fabulous in the esteemed halls of hallowed history. So this issue looked at one Catherine II, a mousy little courtesan who went on to be the biggest thing that ever happened to sex until Xaviera took London! And what made Catherine so "Great"? Well according to the magazine, it was all in the careful selection of her lovers. All 1,001 of them.
