The Romanovs: The Golden Age 1727-1825
February 9 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm$49
Lyndell O’Hara, PhD, history professor, Nyack College
Conspiracy, assassination, sexual intrigue and tremendous wealth and excess on the backs of the serfs are all central to the dramatic story of the Romanov Dynasty. The Romanovs, one of the most successful empire builders in history, ruled Russia for 304 years. In that time, they added an average of 20,000 square miles per year to Russia and by the late nineteenth century controlled 1/6th of the earth. Our continuing exploration of the Romanov Dynasty is set in the era of the eighteenth-century Enlightenment with Catherine the Great at the center of the drama. We will also delve into the reigns of the daughters of Peter the Great who preceded Catherine, and her own sons and grandsons who succeeded her.
