About The Empress TV Show
When the rebellious Elisabeth met Franz, the Emperor of Austria, the intoxicating love of the young couple completely upset the power structure at the Viennese court.
After the wedding, the young empress not only has to assert herself against her power-hungry mother-in-law, Sophie, but also against Franz’s brother Maxi, who longs for the throne (and for Sisi) himself.
When enemy troops form 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 what the price is in order to prove herself as the true empress and the beacon of hope for the people.Keep track of the cancel/renew status of all your favorite shows.
