Sisi Season 2: Plot
Actually, the birth of their son and heir to the throne should make happiness perfect for Sisi and Franz. Instead, that joyous moment is the impetus for power struggles in Europe and the beginning of numerous private challenges for the couple. Otto von Bismarck threatens to drive Austria into a new war.
Sisi tries with all her might to be there for her husband and her people. Although she loves Franz dearly and demonstrates her diplomatic tact time and again, personal happiness does not seem to be granted to the empress. Sisi’s life remains that of a bird in a golden cage.
When she has to travel to Hungary on a political mission, she encounters the untamed expanses of the Puszta, the simple life of the people and a man with whom one can steal horses: Count Andrássy. Torn between her husband and the rebel leader, Sisi is eventually faced with a difficult decision.
Sisi Season 2: Trailer
