A great love, a crown and an entire kingdom to admire her: but intrigue, palace rules and taboos hinder Elisabeth (Devrim Lingnau’s) path to Franz (Philip Froissant) in this new version of Princess Sissi’s thrilling tale of Austria. The Empress takes the throne from September 29, only on Netflix: here’s the official trailer.
When rebellious Elizabeth (“Sisi”) meets Austrian Emperor Franz Joseph, the young couple’s intoxicating love completely disrupts the hierarchy of power at the Viennese court. After the wedding, the young empress must assert herself not only against her mother-in-law Sofia, a power-hungry sovereign, but also against her brother-in-law Maxi, who wants the throne (and also against Sisi). As the enemy troops gather on the border of the Habsburg Empire, the Viennese revolt against the Emperor. Elizabeth must find out who she can trust and the price she must pay to be a true Empress and an example of hope for the people.
