Empress Sisi of Austria had a turbulent life from the time she was 15 until she passed away at age 60. She's been compared to the likes of Princess Diana due to her love for the people of Hungary and how she was so unfairly treated by the monachry. She suffered from depression, eating disorders, and addiction, but that didn't stop her from bringing Austria and Hungary together to form the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the Dual Monarchy. She was obsessed with looks, so much so that she didn't allow any photographs of her face once she was in her 30s. Her children, her freedom, and her life were all taken from her.
