Joseph ruled for amazing 68 years. There are some rumours that his marriage
with Sissi was never happy, because the empress never adapted to the court and
was in conflict with the royal family. Franz Joseph never got over her death:
»You will never know how much she meant to me. She will never know how much I
loved her. Nobody knows how much we loved each other.« The empress played an
important role in his life and they were together right here, in Rogaška Slatina,
which was really rare.. The emperor loved Sissi very much and was missing her.
Sometimes, when she was gone for a while, he was walking through her rooms,
softly touching the furniture covered with a white cover.
Kaiser praises the emperor’s endless love. Sissi and Franz never went on a
honeymoon because of their court duties and therefore this suite is a memory
and a reminder of a romantic life. It covers and
offers numerous halls for true self-indulgence and rest.
