On Sunday June 28, 1914 Archduke Franz Franz Ferdinand and his wife, Sophie visited the town of Sarajevo in Bosnia.
I demand to visit the victims of the bombing in the hospital .
A group of assassins named "The Black Hand" had sworn to assassinate the archduke becuase he'd made it clear when he became archduke there were going to be changes made
Now's my chance, it's now or never
to be continued . . .
The assassins attempt at bombing Fran Ferdninand's car was a failure, instead they injured his soilders
After the the failed attempt of the bombing, Ferdinand and Sophie were driven to the Town Hall and he demanded that he be taken to see the victims in the hospital , so they took a new route and proceeded to the hospital .
Gavrilo Princip then fired two shots , one landing in Sophie's stomach killing her and her newborn baby instantly, the second shot landing in Franz Ferdinand's neck.
This single incident managed to trigger and entire war, this assassination along with military problems and alliances was the start of the very first World War also known as the "Great War"
