Love against all odds – fierce struggles for power, malevolence and intrigues. This is the unique love story of Archduke Johann and the love of his life, Anna Plochl. It was shot by Julian Poelsler for the 150th anniversary of Archduke Johann’s death. They emerge from different worlds: he, the emperor’s brother, she, the postmaster’s daughter. Many, including the emperor himself, wanted to end their liaison but their feelings for one another prevailed.

One of the 19th centuries’ greatest love stories.
