Actress | Soundtrack Magda Schneider was born on in Augsburg, Germany and a singer, stage and film actress. After her graduation at a monastery school, she studied stenography and office management at a business school, but also attended ballet lessons and art courses at the Augsburg School of Music. Nicknamed Sissi (Romy Schneider), Elisabeth possesses fairy tale beauty and charm, from her early days in her Austrian schlosse, where she raises dachshunds, doves, and pet deer, to her latter days as regal ambassador of love, honesty, and generosity. Archduchess Sophie is particular about strict etiquette at the court, and dislikes her niece Sissi, who is a free spirit, just as her father, Duke Max of Bavaria. To keep Sissi inactive, her room in Ischl is locked from outside, but Sissi escapes through a window. Schneider's breakthrough came with her portrayal of Empress Elisabeth of Austria, in the romantic biopic Sissi () and its two sequels, Sissi – The Young Empress (), and Sissi – Fateful Years of an Empress (), all with Karlheinz Böhm, who became a close friend.
An early movie about the life of the empress was The King Steps Out , a American light comedy film directed by Josef von Sternberg , starring Grace Moore.
Marischka then adapted the script based on the novel. Sissi was viewed by 20 to 25 million people in cinemas. It is one of the most successful German-language movies.
The movie was followed by The Young Empress in and Fateful Years of an Empress in In , a condensed version of the trilogy was released in English under the title Forever My Love.
The trilogy is a popular Christmas television special , and is shown on channels in German-speaking countries and Hungary. The success of the movie marked Empress Elisabeth's entrance to popular culture which made the historical figure even more legendary.
The popularity of the films attracted tourists to places which were associated with the Empress, specifically those in Austria.
The popularity also led to the creation of the musical Elisabeth , which became the most successful German-language musical of all time.
The trilogy was parodied in the animated film Lissi. Romy Schneider's role as Elisabeth is considered her acting breakthrough.
She became synonymous with her role in the film, even as she progressed in her acting career. Schneider reprised the role of Elisabeth in Luchino Visconti 's film Ludwig , this time portraying the Empress as a mature yet cynical woman.
The films have been dubbed in languages including French, Italian, English, Spanish, Japanese and Hungarian. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The young Emperor Franz Joseph is on his way to his summer residence at Ischl, where his birthday will be celebrated with a big party.
His mother, Archduchess Sophie, has decided that he shall marry her niece Princess Helene of Bayern, and that the engagement shall be proclaimed at the ball.
Franz Joseph doesn't know Helene yet, but his mother has already prepared everything. Archduchess Sophie is particular about strict etiquette at the court, and dislikes her niece Sissi, who is a free spirit, just as her father, Duke Max of Bavaria.
To keep Sissi inactive, her room in Ischl is locked from outside, but Sissi escapes through a window. She goes to the wood, and when she is fishing in a river, the Emperor Franz Joseph passes by in his royal carriage.
He is immediately enamored by In one of those fictional Mitteleuropean kingdoms that Victorian writers were so fond of -- Graustark, Ruritania, Scythia-Pannonia-Transbalkania, but here called Austria-Hungary -- the Emperor's mother arranges for her son to marry her sister's eldest daughter.
When he meets her second daughter wandering in the woods, however, they fall in love. The charming anti-Cinderella tale of Sissi is based on history, sort of, but it is brought to the screen in its fairy-tale glory with shots of Schonbrunn Castle, Bad Ischl, lavish sets and costumes and year-old Romy Schneider.
Its nostalgia for the dead glories of a lavish court life, stuffed-shirt bureaucrats -- Josef Meinrad has a very funny turn as the incompetent major in charge of security -- is certainly fun to look at, so long as we remember that it's just as unreal as any Disney feature cartoon, even if there are no singing mice.
