In the 15th Century Russia, the last Byzantium Princess, Sophia
Palaiologina, moves from Rome to distant Moscow to marry Czar Ivan III.
Destined to become the first influential female figure of the Russian
Empire, Sophia overcomes court intrigue and betrayals, and helps Ivan
consolidate the fragmented country, push Mongolian invaders out, and
build the Kremlin, the most magnificent symbol of Russia.
