MV#5.9 - Engraving of Novorossia map:



Prince Grigory Aleksandrovich Potemkin-Tavricheski (1739-1791) was a Russian military leader, statesman, nobleman and favourite of Catherine the Great. He died during negotiations over the Treaty of Jassy, which ended a war with the Ottoman Empire that he had overseen. Potemkin's defining achievements include the peaceful annexation of the Crimea (1783) and the successful second Russo-Turkish War (1787–1792).
