Gavril Princip actually killed Franz Ferdinand but i dont know who tried to kill him first
Gavrilo Princips assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdinand June 28th 1914
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.
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.
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.
Gavrillo Princip was one of six assassins involved in the plot to assassinate Archduke Franz Ferdinand. Ferdinand and his wife Sophie were shot dead, sparking the beginning of World War I.
They had a plan to execute him but they all failed until fait gave Gavrilo princip another chance when Franz Ferdinand's driver accidentaly took a wrong turn which took him straight to gavrilo so he shot him and his wife on the spot. his wife was pregnant and it was their anninversary. also was first time his wife sat with him in public.
Gavrilo Prinicp died in Prison, he murdered the archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophia, attempted to take a drug that was so out of date it only made him throw up rather than its initial purpose, to kill him. He wanted to do this as his last act before he died.
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.
Gavrilo Princip was a member of the Black Hand, a a Serbian underground resistance group opposed to Austro-Hungarian government and it's occupation of Serbia. They did not want to be part of the Austro-Hungarian empire, and they did not want to pay taxes to them. There is also some indication he had a personal dislike for the Archduke. Princip had tuberculosis and knew he was going to die soon. He assassinated the Archduke as a final act of "patriotism" believeing he would not live long enough to receive punishment.
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.
An Austrian Archduke named Franz Ferdinand was the subject of an assasination plot by a group called the Black Hand, a Slavic independance group. A member of the organization, Nedelijko Cabrinovic, threw a gernade at his passing motorcade, but it failed to kill Franz. He Nedelijko then killed himself. However, Franz wanted to go to the hospital where the victims of the gernade blast where staying. However, the driver did not where he was going, and happened to pass a cafe where Gavrilo Princip, a member of the Black Hand, just happened to be having a cheese sandwich. Gavrilo took the oppurtunity to kill Franz, which he did.
Gavrilo Princip who was a member of a gang called "The Black Hand." He plotted with other gang members to kill the Archduke but when plans failed he went to eats a sandwhich. Ironically the motor vehicle carrying the Archduke and his wife Sophie had passed the sandwhich shop where Gavrilo then pulled out a pistol and shot them both.
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
He was the next in line to be King for Austria-Hungary in World War one. The Serbians wanted to kill him, so Gavrilo Princip and the Black Hand gang attempted assassination, it was only until the plan failed, and by chance Ferdinand was passing by Gavrilo in his carriage with his wife. Gavrilo took out his gun and fired two shots, killing both Ferdinand and Sophie, his wife.
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.

He was shot by a teenage vagrant, Gavrilo Princip, an inadequate character who had been rejected by the army and several terrorist groups, and wanted to prove that he could kill. Some of his colleagues had also tried to kill the Archduke that day. One of them had thrown a bomb, which missed, and the angry Archduke told his aide to change the route. But the message did not reach the chauffeur, and in the confusion, the car stalled on a street-corner. Princip saw his chance, and shot the Archduke and Archduchess, who died within the hour.
28 June 1914 in Sarajevo, a man named Gavrilo Princip (a member of the Black Hand) wanders the street. He is just one of a number of young assassins who have come to kill Archduke Franz Ferdinand. They line the route along which the Archduke is to drive. They have bombs and pistols ready in their pockets. Gavrilo nervously fingers the pistols in his pocket as he waits.....he hears a sound of explosion. The dead is done.One of his compatriots must have killed the Archduke but there he is! the car and Franz next to him is his wife in a white dress who is dead, Gavrilo has no time to think. He take his pistol out from his pocket, aims on the car and pulls the trigger....he doesn't know how many bullets he shot before he is grabbed and pushed to the ground. Punches and kicks the rain down on him. It is over.
