Dur­ing the 17th to 19th cen­tury, Hun­gary was gov­erned by the House of Hab­s­burg, which was one of the most in­flu­en­tial royal houses of Europe. Dur­ing the reign of Franz Joseph I (1830–1916), the rul­ing ter­ri­tory un­der­went a change from the Aus­trian Em­pire to the Aus­tro-Hun­gar­ian Em­pire. The awak­en­ing of the Hun­gar­ian na­tional con­scious­ness to­gether with the Hun­gar­ian in­de­pen­dence move­ment shook the regime of the na­tion. Hun­gary and the Hab­s­burg Monar­chy were in a hos­tile sit­u­a­tion. For­tu­nately, Queen El­iz­a­beth (Princess Sissy), the wife of Franz Joseph I, eased the ten­sion. The queen set her af­fec­tions on Hun­gary prob­a­bly be­cause she was wel­comed and com­fort­able when she stayed in Hun­gary. She tried her best to strive for the rights and in­ter­ests for Hun­gar­ian peo­ple.
