"Oh my lord, what a beauteous dream" - Sisi and Vienna
At the tender age of 16 the Bavarian Princess Elizabeth, better known under her nickname Sisi, married her cousin, Austrian Emperor Francis Joseph I. The newlyweds were considered a dream couple. Yet the reality was much different. When Elizabeth married the Emperor she hardly knew what fate awaited her. Struggling with court life Elizabeth withdrew more and more from the public eye living a restless life until her tragic death, when she was murdered by an Italian anarchist in 1898. Together we follow her traces through ViennaĹs city center and discover one of the most illustrious members of the Habsburg dynasty.
