‘The Empress’ Poster and Trailer

The new German series The Empress tells the story of Bavarian princess turned Austrian empress Elisabeth, affectionately known as Sisi, who struggled to adjust to life in the stifling 1800s Habsburg royal court. She became a beloved figure as she battled tradition and fought for her individuality and freedom.

Created by Katharina Eyssen, the series stars Devrim Lingnau as 16-year-old Elisabeth and Philip Froissant as 23-year-old ruler Franz Joseph, who fall in love and marry under extraordinary circumstances.

The Empress premieres Sept. 29 on Netflix. Check out the new poster and trailer below:
