Is Catherine II a good general in Evony?

Catherine II is a sub city development general. Her main focus is on improving troop training speed in the sub-city she is Mayor of. As such, she is of very little use in PvP. You should only appoint her Mayor when you are sure you won’t be taking part in PvP.
