When Austria-Hungary's heir to the throne, Archduke Franz Ferdinand was assassinated by Gavrilo Princip, a member of the 'Black Hands', Austria-Hungary, who were feeling confident due to the support Germany had promised them, demanded Serbia to hand over the assassin together with the leaders of the 'Black Hands'. When Serbia failed to do so, Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia.
