Empress Elisabeth

Elisabeth Amalie Eugenie had an exciting life. As a Bavarian country girl, she married Emperor Franz Joseph at the age of 16 and moved to the Vienna Court. At 22, she was already a mother of 3 children, a fourth child followed 10 years later. As a counterbalance to the more conservative Viennese court ceremony, Sisi was traveling a lot and found a lot of strength in sports and literature. The Hungarian zest for life inspired you and so she spent a lot of time there and was very committed to the unification of Austria-Hungary. Sisi's body cult was legendary and a great role model for many. Its end was tragic, it was murdered by an anarchist in Geneva, it was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Sisi's life was filmed many times, the trilogy with Romy Schneider and Karl Heinz Böhm was a worldwide success.
