Elisabeth Marie was definitely Franz Joseph's favourite granddaughter, but I have never read anything about her being Elisabeth's favourite one. In fact Elisabeth didn't like to be a grandmother and I don't think that she was very close to any of her grandchildren. Maybe Elisabeth Marie was the grandchild Elisabeth had most contact with as Elisabeth Marie also lived in Vienna - but as we all know, the Empress prefered to stay away from the court, especially in her later years. But it is possible that Elisabeth liked Elisabeth Marie because she was the only child of Rudolf.

die weiten weissen Schwingen,
Und kehr' ins Feenreich nach Haus -
Nichts soll mich wieder bringen.

But Sissi hadn't really a closer and warmer relationship with Erzsi, just that was living near to her

i didnt see sissi liking the fact of being a grandmother myself. i mean, to be a grandmother, it makes one feel, well old...i dont think sissi would have liked that feeling.  :-\

If you ask about the all her grandchildren - ask at the proper thread about Empress Elisabeth. Also this question had been discussed many times.
