Franz Joseph I or Francis Joseph I (1830 - 1916) was Emperor of Austria, King of Bohemia and Apostolic King of Hungary from 1848 until 1916.
Elisabeth of Bavaria (1837 - 1898) was Empress of Austria and Queen of Hungary as spouse of Francis Joseph I. As such, she held also the titles Queen of Bohemia, Queen of Croatia and others. From an early age, she was called "Sisi" by family and friends (not "Sissi" as in the film or in the animated series).
