Historical

New York Times bestselling author Allison Pataki follows up on her critically acclaimed debut novel, The Traitor‚Äôs Wife, with the little-known and tumultuous love story of ‚ÄúSisi‚ÄĚ the Austro-Hungarian Empress and captivating wife of Emperor Franz Joseph.

The year is 1853, and the Habsburgs are Europe’s most powerful ruling family. With his empire stretching from Austria to Russia, from Germany to Italy, Emperor Franz Joseph is young, rich, and ready to marry.

Fifteen-year-old Elisabeth, ‚ÄúSisi,‚ÄĚ Duchess of Bavaria, travels to the Habsburg Court with her older sister, who is betrothed to the young emperor. But shortly after her arrival at court, Sisi finds herself in an unexpected dilemma: she has inadvertently fallen for and won the heart of her sister‚Äôs groom. Franz Joseph reneges on his earlier proposal and declares his intention to marry Sisi instead.

Thrust onto the throne of Europe’s most treacherous imperial court, Sisi upsets political and familial loyalties in her quest to win, and keep, the love of her emperor, her people, and of the world.

With Pataki‚Äôs rich period detail and cast of complex, bewitching characters, The Accidental Empress offers a captivating glimpse into one of history‚Äôs most intriguing royal families, shedding new light on the glittering Hapsburg Empire and its most mesmerizing, most beloved ‚ÄúFairy Queen.‚ÄĚ
