  • "These annual pageants at the court of Catherine the Great always included at least half a dozen shepherdesses, one of whom was often the Empress herself. But on three separate occasions this form of costuming was banned, the first time, it was said, because one of her favorites, a certain Sergei, who had been particularly fond of such antics in the Empress's boudoir, had recently died and the Empress was thus secretly honoring his memory. But the other two shepherdesslessnesses remain unexplained."

    – Marianne deGroot, Court Affairs: The Whispered Lives of Catherine the Great (Durham, NC: Highwater Press, 1972), 317.
