Abstract: The aim of this article is to deconstruct images of empresses (archduchesses) from the Habsburg- Lorraine dynasty, currently present in the pop culture. The author makes her own psychological and sociological analyses (including a gender studies viewpoint) of these historical heroines, using contemporary historical studies as well as pop cultural and popular science publications from the turn of the 19th and 20th century. The main focus here lies on the biographies of two women – Maria Theresa of Habsburg and Elizabeth of Austria (Elizabeth Amalie Eugenie von Wittelsbach) who made an (un)conscious effort to achieve independence, perceived here in the context of regaining – even if to a limited extent – a sense of control and agency.
