Storyline

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

Just another historic drama
27 December 2018 | by beormasSee all my reviews

First of all, this movie is not historically accurate, e.g. the real Karl VI. died from either mushroom poisoning or an unknown disease, in the movie he had a hunting accident. If you want to learn about history, better watch a documentary or read a book. This movie concentrates on the person of Maria Theresia, her personal experiences and her feelings. It is not easy to judge the mnovie as a drama. The story largely follows historic events, so there is little room for surprises or interesting side-plots. At the time, people at the court had to act stiff which didn't leave much room for the actors to show their skills. Whenever possible, they did a decent job.

Summary: Not a must see for those interested in the history or those who want to see a good drama, but it's not too bad either. Watch it when you are bored and there is nothing better on.
