"Realpolitik" is a style of politics that is amoral, considering only the circumstances, and maintaining and expanding power. It is often connected with the works of Machiavelli, who wrote a treatise on how rulers could maintain and expand power, disregarding the moral aspects of what to do with that power. The woman is drawn loosely on Catherine the Great, who came to power through extraordinary cunning and understanding of politics.
