Sisi Season 2: Plot
Actually, the birth of their son and heir to the throne should complete Sisi and Franz’s happiness.
Instead, that joyful moment serves as a catalyst for power struggles in Europe, as well as the start of numerous private challenges for the couple. Otto von Bismarck threatens to plunge Austria back into war.
Sisi makes every effort to be present for her husband and her people. Despite her deep affection for Franz and her diplomatic skill, the empress does not appear to find personal happiness. Sisi’s life will always be that of a bird in a golden cage.
When she has to travel to Hungary on a political mission, she encounters the wild expanses of the Puszta, the simple life of the people, and a man with whom one can steal horses: Count Andrássy. Sisi is forced to choose between her husband and the rebel leader.
