Plot Summary | Add Synopsis


Did You Know?


Helena frequently refers to Sisi as a peasant. In fact, Sisi was the grand-daughter of the King of Bavaria and her mother Ludovika was actually the sister of Archduchess Sophie of Austria (Empress Sophia in the series). Therefore Sisi was the cousin of Franz and of much higher rank than the Viscountess Helena. See more »

Princess Sissi - Queen of hearts
21 December 2019 | by kmhf-25079See all my reviews

I'm very love this cartoon, remember as I fled from school, just to watch another series on TV. Beautiful, romantic and sincere, it is the love story of a simple girl from a noble Bavarian family Elizabeth and Prince Franz, future Franz-Joseph I of the Austrian Empire. Cartoon "Princess Sissi" is very kind, naive, but it's a fairy tale, and of course, already now, when I viewed it in adulthood, many things in it seems very naive and implausible. But I still love it and with warmth and nostalgia always keep my sweet rememberings about moments in the past, when I discovered wonderful world, where friendship, kindness and love surpasses malice, envy and cruelty.

The main character, Elizabeth, and to her friends "just Sissi" - she is charming, beautiful both externally and internally. She is sincere, kind, trouble-free, always ready to help everyone. And she always forgives all the villains who throughout the animated series did a lot of nasty things to her and her friends and loving ones. Very fond of animals, active, great rider, people are drawn to her and everyone in this cartoon is crazy about her. Actually as the audience of too, of course, because how can anyone not to love (or maybe adore) such a perfect Princess? A terrific role model, especially for young ladies.

Prince Franz, also probably a favourite of the audience, brunette with green eyes and on a white horse! In the cartoon he is presented as a real Prince, he is kind, brave, fair. However at some moments viewer wants to kick him, because he believes anyone who contacts with him, and can't see because of his frankness and straightheartednes, that not all of this people wish good to him, some of them just manipulated him in its vile and malevolent purposes. And because of it, I'm always very worried about Sissi and Franz, and very wanted, that they would be at last happy together.

Queen Sofia, Chansellor Zottornik, Helena and Count Arkas - they are villains of the cartoon, they constantly prevent the main characters to be together, plotting, weaving plots and intrigues, and it turns out they did it quite skillfully. In this cartoon, I love all the characters, even negative ones, because they are perfectly invented and made. Especially Zottornik and Arkas, I love them!

Sissi's family members and her many friends are just as well thought out and made. Franz's brother, Karl, is a nice and kind guy. Tommy, an orphan boy and Sissi's best friend, Hungarians, quite a cute and interesting characters.

Cartoon is adventureous, interesting, there are a lot of intrigues, secrets and conspiracies. Shown a long Elizabeth's way to the throne and many troubles and trials, that she must overcome to finally be with her beloved Franz. A stunning beautiful story filled with kindness and adventure.

I think all female viewers of all ages will love it (and probably some part of male audience, that who remember this miracle from childhood, and not toughened by years in heart and soul, just like me!)

P.S.: how sad, that real life-story of Princess Elizabeth of Bavaria, then Queen Elizabeth of Austrian-Hungarian Empire, was so tough, bitter and leads to tragedy in its end... This woman were just Awesome person, she fills the hearts of people with love, hope, misericordia and forgiveness, and people of Hungary, whose life energy and joyfulness Elizabeth so admires, and whose independent state of mind she respects so much, that she defends them beyond all Austrian government attacks to diminishing their political and civil rights, granted them equal rights and status of citizens of united Empire, they love and adore her now and then, forever and ever, they even built a bridge in Budapest that was named by her official name, and privately they are called her "Our Beloved Princess Sissi".
