Could This German Royal Drama on Netflix Be the Next ‘The Crown’?

It set the tone for the next 40 years of Elisabeth’s life, defined by adulating praise (“It is the Empress who attracts them all,” Sophie wrote of her daughter-in-law’s internationally famous beauty. “For she is their joy, their idol.”) and moments of resistance against the strictures of court, worlds away from her Bavarian childhood. Making matters worse: Elisabeth’s fraught relationship with Archduchess Sophie—who, until Sisi’s marriage, had been the highest-ranking female member of the Viennese court—and Franz’s reckless younger brother Maximilian, who was by no means content playing the spare to Franz’s heir.

Who is in the cast of The Empress?

The German series has cast newcomers Devrim Lingnau and Philip Froissant as Sisi and Franz, respectively. Melika Foroutan, Johannes Nussbaum, Elisa Schlott, Jördis Triebel, Wiebke Puls, and Almila Bagriacik will also appear in yet-to-be-disclosed roles.

Why are there so many comparisons between Sisi and Diana, Princess of Wales?

Much like the Princess of Wales, Sisi inspired almost manic devotion amongst the public from her wedding onwards, becoming the first celebrity royal in Europe. Naturally, her famous beauty helped. Her chestnut hair reached past her waist, with Elisabeth spending three hours having her locks tended to each day (she also swore by washing her hair with a mixture of eggs and cognac). As she aged, a fear of losing her beauty consumed her. She refused to be photographed over the age of 30, developing special anti-aging creams made from wax, almonds, and rosewater to preserve her youth and—according to reports—dying her hair with indigo.
