Steiff Empress Elisabeth Teddy Bear

£237.15 Regular price £279.00

In honor of our founder Margarete Steiff, we proudly present our Famous Women of the World collection. Our first tribute is to Empress Elisabeth of Austria, who was also the Queen of Hungary and known for her free-spirited nature. Her life story reads like a romantic novel - a vibrant Bavarian princess, hailed as one of the most renowned and beautiful women of 19th century Europe, and affectionately nicknamed "Sisi". Emperor Franz Joseph was instantly infatuated with the stunning Elisabeth, and within just two days of meeting her, he proposed marriage. Their wedding took place eight months later in Vienna. Out of all the long-reigning Habsburgs, the imperial dynasty of Austria, none have garnered as much fame as Empress Elisabeth. Even 125 years after her passing, she continues to outshine all others. Little did she know that her fierce determination to defend her independence and spirit would become her destiny. This limited edition teddy
