World War One - By Holly and Elly

  • Franz Ferdinand

    Franz Ferdinand
    Archduke Franz Ferdinand was visiting the city of Sarajevo in Bosnia. He and his wife were travelling in an open car with very little security to guard them. They travelled in this car along the main road when a Serbian nationalist called Nedjelko Cabrinovic threw a bomb at the car. It rolled off the back of the vehicle and missed the Archduke. They kept travelling long and archduke's procession took a wrong turn. Gavrilo Princip fired his gun into the car which ended up shooting Franz Ferdinand
