The oldest daughter Helene for example was predestined to marry the emperor of Austria, Franz Joseph. When she wanted to tell her family, Sissi appreared dancing high above them on a rope... and she fell.

But soon she felt the big mistake. Franz' mother, Sophie, was the hell on earth, who treated the poor pessant princess as mean as possible.
