The Empress Plot
According to Netflix, Elisabeth (“SISI”), a rebellious young woman, meets Franz, the Emperor of Austria. Their intoxicating love completely changes the power structure at the Viennese court. After they marry, Sisi must assert herself against her mother-in-law Sophie (who wants power) and Franz’s brother Maxi (who also secretly longs for the throne). Elisabeth’s life as Empress is chaotic when people in Vienna protest against the emperor and enemy troops form up on the borders of their empire. She must decide who she can trust and how much she will sacrifice to be a true leader for her people.
According to an official Netflix press release, “For now almost 200 years, fans and audiences across the globe have been fascinated by Elisabeth; by her passion, her beauty and her non-conformist lifestyle. In this six-part series, Netflix gives us a glimpse into the inner turmoil of a young woman far ahead of her time, battling tradition and state conventions and fighting for her individuality and freedom. The royal love story of Elisabeth (Devrim Lingnau) and young ruler Franz (Philip Froissant) is unique. It’s a story of two young people, battling with their own personal doubts, desires and inner conflicts as the weight of an entire empire rests on their shoulders.”
