In the final act of The Empress, Elisabeth is locked up inside the palace gates for violating royal protocol. Elisabeth finds out she is pregnant, just as Franz tells her to leave. The Empress, watched by Franz and Sophia, announces her pregnancy to the throng Are the people going to accept her after what she does? If she were to forgive Franz? Sophie is expecting; what are her future plans?
We do know, provided the drama stays close to the historical record, that the Archduchess will continue to make Elisabeth’s life inside the palace gates a living hell. About ten months after her marriage to the Duke, the Empress gave birth to a daughter whom she named Archduchess Sophie of Austria.
The older Archduchess named the infant after herself and took full custody of the child, prohibiting Elisabeth from caring for or breastfeeding her own kid. Another daughter was born to Elisabeth a year later, and rumor has it that Sophie wrote a vicious pamphlet condemning her son-in-law for failing to sire a male heir. According to sources, these topics are expected in season two.
