empress Sisi as Netflix is shooting six part series THE EMPRESS as one of their new German originals and today I have first photos for you from the production that started earlier this month. The series will depict Sisi’s life from her teenage years onwards, when she first met Emperor Franz Joseph of Austria Hungary, and Devrim Lingnau and Philip Froissant will play the imperial couple. When the rebellious Elisabeth meets Franz, the Emperor of Austria, in 1853 the young couple's intoxicating love completely upsets the power structure at the Viennese court. After the wedding, the young empress must assert herself not only against her mother in law, the sovereign, power hungry Sophie, but also against Franz's brother Maxi, who himself

true empress and a figure of hope for the people. While her contemporaries considered her kitschy and vain, Sisi got a whole cult of fans after she was stabbed to death in Geneva in 1898. Kinda like today's rock stars.

    1. I've never actually seen any of the classic versions, there is one on YouTube but geoblocked for anyone not in Deutchland. But I know she was a proper biyatch LOL

    2. Sissi was my idol when I was six year old, but having spent half a century watching everything on her and even writing papers about her, I had enough with the subject because, yes, she was a mega bitch.

  3. The dresses in Sisi are certainly full! I have to wonder how difficult it was for the actors to get around in them.

    1. Maybe they had midgets who fanned them underneath LOL I remember that King Louis' wife in Versailles had a black midget who did more than just fanning her down there.... thus the scandal when she gave him a black heir LOL

    1. No, she was a cunt and deserved it LOL Most Austrian royalty deserved it LOL We stabbed a few ourselves LOL One of our boys stabbed that nasty prick Franz Ferdinand of Austria when he took Bosnia from us and it then lead to WW1, but it was the prick's fault, not ours.

    2. I usually am lost with your history lessons b/c it's all knew information to me. But we were all taught about Archduke Ferdinand and how his death was the trigger for WWI. It was beaten into our heads so much, that 15 years later, I still remember it quite vividly.

    3. It was a trigger but not the reason, the reason was Austria's imperialistic tendencies towards the Balkans, they wanted to occupy us whole, and the allies just would not have it. When our Gavrilo Princip killed their emperor Franz, Austria demanded from us to open our borders to their police and that is against any sovereignty so we sad fuck off and then Russia told them to piss off and England too and that is how the war started because they wanted to spread through half a Europe.
