Fans of The Crown can fall in love with a brand new royal in the upcoming Netflix series

The Empress has a rich history of characters to draw inspiration from. The description for the show on Netflix’s website reveals: “In Austria in the 1800s, the passionate and rebellious Sisi and Emperor Franz Joseph face the pressure of love, intrigue and power struggles at the Viennese court.”

According to, Duchess Elisabeth Amalie Eugenie, affectionately known as Sisi, was born in Munich, Germany, in 1837. The 23-year-old Emperor of Austria was due to marry Sisi’s older, more sophisticated sister, but instead he found himself infatuated with the shy young Duchess. Only 16 at the time, Sisi was shy and depressed, which prompted her not to marry and carry out her public duties as royal. Her in-laws also made life difficult for her, and she spent her days being courted by the press, eager to catch a glimpse of the young bride. As a result, she often found herself isolated at the palace, where she developed an eating disorder and further sunk into depression. However, she ruled over the largest European empire next to Russia for 44 years until she was assassinated.

Only time will tell how closely the series will resemble these historical facts. The Empress is slated to hit Netflix on September 29, nearly two months before The Crown Season 5 is expected to release in November 2022.
