Schneider's breakthrough came with her portrayal of Elisabeth, Empress Consort of Austria, in the romantic biopic Sissi (1955) and its two sequels, Sissi-The Young Empress (1956) and Sissi-Fateful Years of an Empress (1957).

Less stereot ypical films during this busy period include Robinson soll nicht sterben (The Legend of Robinson Crusoe) (1957) putting her among a stellar cast and opposite a young Horst Buchholz, and Monpti (1957).

Few of her well known French movies are Les choses de la vie, Max et les ferrailleurs, Cesar et Rosalie and Le vieux fusil. She was awarded César Award an equivalent of Oscar awards. Germany launched a postage stamp on her.

In July 1966, Romy married Harry Meyen a German actor and director, who later committed suicide. The couple had a son by name David Christopher. In 1975, Romy married her secretary Daniel Biasini, who later separated in 1981.

They have a daughter Sarah Baisini, who is also an actress. Romy's son David Christopher died in an accident in 1981. This led to Romy taking alcohol in excess. On 29th May 1982, Romy Schneider died due to a cardiac arrest at her apartment in Paris.
