Killed in Sarajevo, Bosnia, by Serbian separatists (members of the terrorist group the Black Hand).

The murder precipitates international posturing that leads to the First World War a few weeks later.

Was he mad or just a patriot hoping to get independence for his country? Weren't the madmen the leaders of the various countries who could go to war over such a comparatively trivia act. Without trying to compromise.

A cowardly act of murder, regardless of the results he wanted.

Yes Bobgar he was mad . By killing the only Austrian Hungarian leader who wanted to compromises on home rule in the empire. Serbia was already a free country, he just wanted "Greater Serbia".

Gavrillo Princip and his co-conspirators were raised Orthodox, while the archduke and his wife were Catholics.
