Elisabeth of Austria (5 July 1554 – 22 January 1592) was a German princess, daughter of Holy Roman Emperor Maximilian II, by birth Archduchess of Austria and by marriage Queen of France. The King, Charles IX of France, curious about his future wife, dressed himself as a soldier and went to Sedan to observe her incognito while she was walking in the palace of Sedan's garden with Henry: he was reportedly happy about what he saw.
