A new photo of Sissi has appeared lately on tumblr (antique-royals.tumblr). On it we can see Empress Sissi, her sister, Helene aka "Nené" and a lady in waiting (Hunyady Windischgratz). ca. 1860.



But lately I found that it is just a detail of a larger picture...

Some kind of Hungarian WWI era propaganda depicting the late Empress Sissi



Sissi and Franz Joseph in the 1880's



Now on a carriage, 1860's



And even younger, in the 1850's... not much time after their marriage, I think
