Dying. His death (by assassination) was the event that started the war.
he was a heir to the Austrian throne!
It was the main cause of World War 1
They were a terrorist group, who killed Franz Ferdinand in the 1st World war. Ferdinand was the Archduke of Austria. The Black Hand was founded on May 9th 1911 in the Kingdom of Serbia. By 1914, there were several hundred members, perhaps as many as 2500.
The Black Hand was the name of the group of men that conspired to murder Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife. This assassination triggered the political crisis that resulted in World War I.
Franz Ferdinand was dead during the war, his role in WWI is that he was the spark, the event that set off the war when he was assasinated.
Nationalism and imperialism directly caused WW1 as nations sought to protect their interests. The war was sparked off by the Assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand in 1914.
The killing of Archduke Ferdinand, the Zimmerman Note, and the sinking of the RMS Lusitania may have played a role in starting World War I.
The three things that played a role in starting the WWI were the killing of Archduke Ferdinand, the Zimmerman Note and the sinking of the Lusitania.
The murder of Archduke Franz Ferdinand was very very important. There was also the balkan problem Then there was the tangier crisis and the agadir crisis. Also the different countries kept on making different alliences which made the other countries feel threatened.
The Serbian government provided the weapons that the Black Hand used to attempt to assassinate Ferdinand/the gun that Princip used to kill Ferdinand.
the sinking of the Lusitania was the biggest for the united states...the killing of archduke Ferdinand, as well as the Zimmerman note are two others as well
Serbian nationalism triggered the war! BEcause Serbian nationalists believed in Pan - Slavism, they antagonized Austria - Hungary for taking Bosnia, a slavic country. Soon later, Gavrilo Princip, Serbian nationalist, killed Archduke Franz Ferdinand while triggering the war! Serbian nationalism triggered the war!

Tensions throughout Europe carried over from country to country intensifying as time passed. Archduke Ferdinand was assassinated which pushed an angry continent into the first World War. Here is an article I found that helps explain the event. http://www.lib.byu.edu/~rdh/wwi/1914/ferddead.html
The assassination on 28 June 1914 of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, the heir to the throne of Austria-Hungary, is seen as the immediate trigger of the war. Long-term causes, such as imperialistic foreign policies of the great powers of Europe, such as the German Empire, the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the Ottoman Empire, the Russian Empire, the British Empire, France, and Italy, played a major role.
The role secret alliances played were the treaty of versailles and also the 14 points and the assassination of Franz Ferdinand, thts only 3 of the roles the secret alliances had.
This was a role of nationalism as in men wanted to fight for their countries and show their loyalty. Nationalism in WW1 was mainly in the Austria-Hungary empire. They ruled over 11 different nationalities, all of whom wanted their freedom to be their own country, no more so than Serbia, who had just defeated the Turks. A serbian nationalist named Princip shot Archduke Franz Ferdinand (the heir to the throne) and his pregnant wife Sophie. This is thought to be the match that lit the dynamite for WW1.
Alliances played a key role in the war, because they are what brought war to such a global scale. When Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated by a Serbian, Austria-Hungary declared war. Germany was allied with Austria-Hungary and thus were obligated to go to war aswell. Alliances also played a role in Britians joining the war, because they joined as an ally of Belgium when Belgium was invaded by Germany.
hes the trigger. his death pisses off i think the austrians? i dont know exactly. but it pisses off the nation and they attack the serbs which in turn make other countries jump into all the fun
In World War One, Britain was the defensive force who backed up Belgium when the Germans invaded after the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand. In World War Two, they were the leading power against the Nazi's, Britain was the nation who faught the Nazi's longer than anyone else, becoming the back-bone of the defensive front. With Spitfires, Hurricains, and of course the navy they were one of the most overwhelming forces that Germany had to face, also the only force that Germany never truely beat.
The Balkan state that played a great role in the outbreak of World War 1 was Serbia. It was under the control of the Austro-Hungarian Empire at the time, and a group of separatists murdered Archduke Ferdinand of Austria-Hungary while he was visiting Sarajevo. This sparked a chain of events that culminated in the outbreak of World War 1.
He shot Arch Duke Ferdinand in Sarajevo, and started the War
None. WWII was about fascism and dictators. WWI was when Archduke was assassinated by a Chezch and the alliance system kicked in.
Courtesy of wikipedia "World War I": The assassination on 28 June 1914 of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, the heir to the throne of Austria-Hungary, is seen as the immediate trigger of the war, though long-term causes, such as imperialistic foreign policy, played a major role. Ferdinand's assassination at the hands of Serbian nationalist Gavrilo Princip resulted in demands against the Kingdom of Serbia. Several alliances that had been formed over the past decades were invoked, so within weeks the major powers were at war; with all having colonies, the conflict soon spread around the world.
Nationalism was the first and foremost cause of World War One. Without Nationalism, Austria-hungary would not have been in Serbia, thus the Archduke Franz Ferdinand would not have been assassinated. Without him being assassinated, war would not have been declared on Serbia, Russia would not have come to Serbia's aid, and Germany would not have come to Austria-hungary's aid. A long time before the beginning of World War One, armies had begun to expand their armies, and their domains. This had made smaller countries afraid, and these countries had gone to bigger countries for alliances. These factors also assisted in bringing about World War One.
he played the leader
