1. Empress Sisi
Originally known as Elizabeth, Empress Sisi was the 16-year-old sister of Duchess Helene, whom Franz Josef was initially supposed to marry. But once he took one look at Sisi, he decided to propose to her on the spot, and the rest is history. Sisi was known for having ankle-length dark hair, which she maintained for almost an hour every single day. But she wasn’t just a looks queen. This empress took care of her body with lots of exercises, including horseback riding, fencing, and gymnastics rings. Many speculated, however, that she dealt with depression and an eating disorder, so despite being the Empress of Hungary, her life wasn’t all roses.
