Serbian Gavrilo Princip who was ally of a secret society Black Hand.

Gavrilo Princip was part of an underground resistance group that opposed Archduke Franz Ferdinand's rule, and the occupation of Serbia. He assassinated the Archduke as an act of patriotism and also because he did not like him.

Gavrilo Princip killed Archduke Ferdinand to advance the unification of his slavic people

The Archduke Ferdinand and his wife were shot by Gavrilo Princip using a FN Browning model 1910 pistol. The particular pistol he used is believed to be a .32 caliber.

Sarejevo, Bosnia. Bosnia had been highly contested territory before Austria-Hungary annexed it in 1905.

Gavrilo Princip was not hired to kill Archduke Ferdinand. He was a Serbian nationalist and separatist who was part of the organization known as the Black Hand.

A Browning M1910 .32 caliber automatic pistol

To kill Franz Ferdinand.

Yes the Archduke was shot. He was killed by Gavrilo Princip (check the spelling). He was a Serbian nationalist that was order by Germany to kill the Archduke. He was kiled at the Bosnian capital, Sarajevo.

The Black Hand, a terrorist group from Serbia knew Franz Ferdinand was coming to their country, and they knew of his route. They had three different spots where they had a member of their group waiting for Ferdinand to come so they could kill him. At the first location, the terrorist jumped out and pulled his pistol on Franz Ferdinand, but the pistol misfired and the crowd tackled him. The second person just didn't even show up. At the third station was Gavrilo Princip and a friend. His friend threw a Molotov cocktail, but it rolled too far and went under a car behind Ferdinands. It blew up and that man was captured. Princip fled and went to a coffee shop. Ferdinand went to a friends house and enjoyed a dinner. When he was leaving he passed by the coffee shop and out comes Princip at that same time. The car was stopped, and Princip just pulled his gun and killed Ferdinand and his wife. This is the truth.

Princip was a Serbian nationalist who believed the territory of Bosnia, which Austria had just annexed, should belong to Serbia's slavic empire. Killing the heir to Austria's throne might get Austria to hand over Bosnia, or at least make a statement.

Princip, from Serbia. The Black Hand gave 4 men weapons to kill Archduke Ferdinand.

The situation at the time was very bad. Franz Ferdinand, Prince of (FIND WHERE RULED), had been shot after visiting Bosnia troops. There was a gang who wanted to kill him but they failed, but as Gavrilo Princip walked out of a cafe, the car passed and he shot Franz Ferdinand. This is the start of the war.Hope this helps :) x

A sizable group planned the assassination, however only two made an attempt. One tried a bombing and when he failed, Gavrilo Princip shot the Archduke and his wife.

The first assassin threw a hand grenade and it bounced off of the Archduke and into the next car. The next day Princip used a semiautomatic pistol to kill the Archduke and his wife.

The black hand gang wanted to kill Franz Ferdinand because they wanted to get revenge; they always treated them wrong so they wanted to be free.

nahh it ain't princip, it was some guy from the bosinian government he sent the black hand gang all the equipment they needed, that guy was also responsible for the cyanide being in-effective when the gang tried to kill themselves. :) Rania thats nt even answering the question :L by bobbi leigh It was Gavrilo Princip that killed Archduke Franz Ferdinand but i don't think he was the leader. when Franz Ferdinand was on the way see injured soldiers the whole of the black hand gang were lined up on the street ready to strike but they all missed and some pulled out so Princip left but the driver of Franz Ferdinands car had took a wrong turn and was heading straight for Princip so he took his chance and killed the Archduke but princip had a disase anyway and was going to die anyway so he tried to comit suicide afterbut the police came first he died of the disease later though. By Georgia

The Serbian government provided the weapons that the Black Hand used to attempt to assassinate Ferdinand/the gun that Princip used to kill Ferdinand.

In Sarajevo, then in Serbia, now capital of Bosnia-Hercegovina.

As a protest against Habsburg rule in Bosnia.
