In time of absolute monarchies, political intrigue and diplomacy through marriage love is not a word associated with marriage. And a ruling Empress? Not even imaginable. But there is a bright little girl growing up at the Hofburg palace: Not only does beautiful Maria Theresa study books she isn't supposed to read. She also has a crush on dashing Francis Stephen of Lorraine, whom her father Charles VI eventually allows her to marry. When Charles VI dies, an edict paves his daughter's way to the throne. The new Habsburg ruler is only 23 years old - and expecting her fourth child. Maria Theresa eagerly responds to her realm's need for reform and handles the state of affairs while her husband spends much of his time with their children. But Austria seems to be on the verge of collapse and European rulers soon attack the Habsburg Empire. It takes a diplomatic masterpiece for Maria Theresa to win allies and, eventually, revitalize an empire that influenced the rest of Europe for almost 150 ... Written by Happy_Evil_Dude

motivational and witty, with honesty and justice comes stability
2 June 2018 | by ostryrohacSee all my reviews

Excellent motivational movie, great actors and great music. If you wish to know what was it that held together the Austrian Empire in the period 1740 - 1918, well you can find the answer in the legacy of Maria Theresia: her faith, courage, honesty, sense of justice, hard work and humanity of Maria Theresia. And the business spirit of her husband, the Duke of Toscany. This movie is a celebration of life and blessings that follow from a pure heart. Watched it already five times. Very witty as well: Maria Theresia "Nobody has asked for my hand yet", the butler in response "Ah, they'll wed you in the end, don't warry your Highness. The red carpet is a bigger problem. It's too short..."
