This is what “The Empress” is about

When the rebellious Elisabeth (“Sisi”) meets Franz, the Emperor of Austria, the young couple’s intoxicating love completely upsets the power structure at the Viennese court. After the wedding, the young empress not only has to assert herself against her mother-in-law, the sovereign, power-hungry Sophie, but also against Franz’s brother Maxi, who himself longs for the throne (and for Sisi). When enemy troops form up on the borders of the Habsburg Empire, the people of Vienna rise up in protest against the emperor. Elisabeth must find out who she can trust and how high the price is to prove herself a true empress and the people’s hope.
