This book is based on a single quote by Empress Elisabeth describing pretty much how confinement feels.

”A fully equipped lunatic asylum would please me most.” —Empress Elisabeth (of Austria) / Sisi / Elisabeth Amalie Eugenie in Beieren

“Oh, had I but never left the path that would have led me to freedom. Oh, that on the broad avenues of vanity I had never strayed. I have awakened in a dungeon with chains on my hands.” —Elisabeth
