Elisabeth Amalie Eugenie („Sisi“)

Empress of Austria and Apostolic Queen of Hungary
(Munich 1837 – Geneva 1898)


»Was I a victim of the imperial court in Vienna? No, I don’t think so. I created and maintained my magnificent hair and my well- trained body, and I was able to establish a new ideal of beauty, one, however, that increasingly frightened me. I was afraid of growing old. Independent and freedom-loving, eccentric and provocative, I sympathised with rebellious minds.«
