      I seem to recall learning that the primary principle of the Divine Right of
      Monarchies was the idea that the monarch is ultimately the sole ruler of the
      country and is accountable only to God and, was it not Catherine the Great who
      advanced this philosophy within Russia and established a bureaucratic nobility?
      Also, did not the philosophy of the Divine Rights of Monarchies have as its
      primary intellectual advocate the French RC Bishop Jacques Bossuet [whom
      Catherine must have read]?
