He was never buried. On July 4, 1914 the bodies of Franz Ferdinand and his beloved wife Sophie were placed in sarcophagi in the family crypt at their home, Artstetten Castle, about 70 miles from Vienna, Austria. They had been embalmed after the shooting and placed in coffins, and they are in the sarcophagi inside the coffins. See related link below for a photo of their last resting place.

How long did franz Ferdinand reign?

Franz Ferdinand never reigned. His father's brother, Franz Joseph, was the Emperor for sixty-eight years. The Emperor's only son, the cousin of Franz Ferdinand, committed suicide when the Emperor refused him permission to marry the girl he loved (see the movie "Mayerling"). With that suicide the old Emperor had no heir, and tried to make his brother, Franz Ferdinand's father, the heir to the throne, but the brother did not want it. So that left Franz Ferdinand to be the heir to the throne when his old uncle might die, but he just lived on and on and on. Franz Ferdinand was heir for more than fifteen years, but when he was murdered his uncle was still alive. The old Emperor outlived Franz Ferdinand by two years, dying in 1916.
