Born into the House of Romanov to the all-powerful Peter the Great and his wife, Catherine, Tsarevna Elizabeth is the envy of the Russian empire. Her life is turned upside down, however, when her father dies, her only brother has been executed, and her mother takes the throne of Russia. When the Imperial Crown is left to an infant, Elizabeth finds herself in mortal danger and must confront a terrible dilemma: seize the reins of power and harm an innocent child, or risk her own life.
