Portraits of the Emperess Elisabeth (Sissi) of Austria (1837 – 1898)

She was the wife of Franz Joseph I, and therefore both Empress of Austria and Queen of Hungary. From an early age, she was called Sisi by family and friends.
The Empress is now thought to have been a non-conformist who abhorred conventional court protocol, as well as a free spirit, who valued an individual sense of freedom above anything else. She was murdered by an anarchist in Geneva, Switzerland in 1898.
