Author Barry Denenberg introduces us to a nineteenth-century Bavarian princess named Elisabeth who at age fifteen is engaged to the emperor of Austria and is swept into an unfamiliar world.

Author Barry Denenberg brings us into the whirlwind that is the life of Princess Elisabeth of Austria. A free and impetuous spirit, Elisabeth was chosen at the tender age of fifteen (over her older sister) to be the wife of Franz Joseph, Emperor of Austria. From that moment on, she is thrown into an intimidating world of restrictions and tremendous responsibilities. Feeling lonely and alienated, Elisabeth is forced to rely upon her own personal strength, which is what eventually leads her down the aisle and into an uncertain future.

I read alot of royal diaries books,just don't get why those princesses would love someone so easily.And usually they don't have a very good life together.

This series always has an epilogue at the end which summarizes the remainder of the princess's life. This one bothered me. It reads

"A truly caring person, [Elizabeth] developed a sincere concern for the poor and mentally ill. She became a symbol of hope to thousands of her subjects. But it was Elizabeth's extraordinary beauty that was her most noteworthy characteristic."

I really didn't find this a healthy message to tack on to the end of a book for young girls.
