Exclusive podcast in the RTL+ music appAbout the plot: In season two, Sisi gifts her Franz with an heir to the throne. The birth of their son should make the happiness of the imperial couple perfect. Instead, it sparks power struggles in Europe. Bismarck threatens to drive Austria into a new war. Sisi tries with all her strength to be there for her husband and her people. Personal happiness, however, does not seem to be granted to the empress, for Sisi’s life remains that of a bird in a golden cage.
The freshly launched podcast channel in the “RTL+ Music” app is featuring the exclusive podcast “Sisi – Ihrer Zeit voraus” (Sisi – Ahead of Her Time, in German), in which host Tim goes on a search for traces of Sisi’s past in Vienna and meets people who tell interesting stories about the empress.
