Q = Queen
What does it take to be a Queen? Some may say you marry into the position or maybe you are born into the position. Others have taken it when they had the opportunity. And, with this position comes power, palaces, fine gowns, land, etc.
This post is a bit of a continuation from yesterday’s palaces, but I am going to focus on a series of buildings that were built and decorated for Russian Queens, or Empresses as was the correct title, and mainly on Catherine the Great who was able to grab power when she saw the opportunity. The legacy she left is on a grand scale – from the Hermitage to Peterhof to the palace known simply as Catherine’s Palace.
For the rest of us? Here is my challenge to you – find your inner power and surround your life with beauty! Become the Queen of your life.
