Photographer's Note

But what is this fuzz about Sissy? Empress Elisabeth of Austria (nicked Sissy) was the beloved empress of Hungary in the 19th century. Why? Because for her empathy towards Hungarian people. Her husband was Emperor Franz Joseph I, the man responsible for defeating the Hungarian Revolution and War of Independence of 1848-49. The emperor was mad at my people for a long time, but according to the legends Sissy, who developed friendship with the Hungarian people (according to some gossips a very close friendship ín case of a certain noble man), persuaded her husband that he must reach a compromise with the Hungarians. Of course other factors too, played a role in the emperor's decision, whose claim for the Hungarian throne was recognised in return. The Hungarian crown was put to his head by the prince-bishop of Esztergom (who was traditionally entitled to inaguarate kings) ín 1867.
When Sissy was murdered in 1898 by an anarchist, parks and squares were named or renamed after her. A statue of her can be found in the biggest park of my town as well. Please find it in WS!
