Paul never marched his army to Catherine's palace to prove to her his desire to fight the Turks. She did allow him to participate in the Russo-Swedish War (1788-1790), but not in actual combat. See more »

User Reviews

almost, a decent end
14 October 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

Maybe, not the best end but a decent one. As result of inspired performances of Helen Mirren and Jason Clarke. Short, a final like a reconciliation with its viewers. Romance, power, fall of an empress, a son and his frustrations. All not so far by real facts. A good point of serie - the mad man . The worst- few words of the final text :"...he was deposed and assassinated in a coup ordered by his son Alexander". This last words are pure and infamous lie and the motif for not ignore the too many sins of the serie.
