Allison Pataki Makes History Come To Life

Readers might not think that the Hungarian court is one of history’s more fascinating topics. But author Allison Pataki thinks otherwise. In her novel, The Accidental Empress, she captivates us with her story about a woman time seemed to forget, Sisi, the wife of Emperor Franz Joseph. 

I hope you enjoy my interview with Pataki, as she discusses why she turned to writing, when she became obsessed with Europe’s most powerful ruling family, how a young girl stole the heart of an Emperor, and why the House of Habsburg was such a treacherous place. Enjoy!
