While Franz Ferdinand had no personal liking for the Serbs, he was not hostile to them: This alarmed the Serbs, who foresaw the creation of a third crown in the Austro-Hungarian empire with Zagreb the possible capital — if that happened the chances of creating Greater Serbia would vanish.
The targeting of the Archduke thus exemplified one abiding strand in the logic of terrorist movements, namely that reformers and moderates are more to be feared than outright enemies and hardliners. Among those inspired by his memory was Gavrilo Princip.

The conspirators installed Peter I as the new king. Planning now focused on the Archduke's visit to Sarajevo on June 28, rumours of which had circulated as early as autumn The three principal recruits were radicalised in the cafes of Belgrade by the Black Hand. He volunteered to join Serbian guerrillas fighting Ottoman Turks in the First Balkan War but was rejected as too weak and sickly.
I am a Yugoslav nationalist, aiming for the unification of all Yugoslavs, and I do not care what form of state, but it must be free from Austria. Gavrilo Princip at his trial. The pistols used by the assassins, now in a museum in Vienna. He had trained as a schoolteacher, and worked in Sarajevo as a proof-reader and the editor of a local paper. So a veiled warning was sent to Vienna, via Dr Leon von Bilinski.
Bilinski rather missed the point: It remained a day of profound significance to all Serb nationalists. It was also the 14th wedding anniversary of Franz Ferdinand and Sophie, a reminder of the day on which he had had to sign the Oath of Renunciation confirming that their children could not succeed to the imperial throne.
The day before had been cold and wet but the morning of June 28 was sunny. The couple had been staying outside Sarajevo at Ilidze for three days. So relaxed were they that they had come into Sarajevo two days before for a shopping trip, during which they were shadowed by Princip. You are wrong after all Everywhere we have gone here, we have been treated with so much friendliness — and by every last Serb, too — with so much cordiality and warmth that we are very happy about it The Duchess to Dr Josip Sunaric, Bosnian Croat leader, the night before the assassination.
The Archduke and the Countess arrive in Sarajevo by train. The couple were to drive in the second of a six-car motorcade from the railway station along the river to the City Hall. Danic and the six other would-be assassins were stationed along the route. The numberplate was A III — in which those who believe such things can see a portent of the eventual Armistice date in The Archduke's car is now in a museum in Vienna. Next to the driver in the front was Count Franz von Harrach, in charge of their security.
The royal party in the car. He primed his bomb and threw it. The driver saw it coming and accelerated. Come on, that fellow is clearly insane, let us proceed with our programme. Franz Ferdinand reacts to the bomb. The remaining assassins lost their nerve. By the time the motorcade passed Princip it was moving too fast for him to shoot. Knowing that the party would return from City Hall later, he moved across to the right-hand side of Franz Joseph Street. At City Hall, the mayor of Sarajevo, Fehim Effendi Curcic, who had been in the first car, began a nervous speech of welcome. Franz Ferdinand interrupted, furiously: The mayor was allowed to continue, then the Archduke spoke, the paper he held bearing the bloodstains of one of the officers in the third car.
Having gathered himself, he praised the cheers of the people of Sarajevo, which he took to be an expression of relief at the failure of the assassination. The couple leave City Hall. The change of plan: But now the museum visit was cancelled; the route would be straight back back down Appel Quay. Potiorek yelled that this was the wrong the way. The car was stopped and — without a reverse gear — it had to be pushed backwards. Now he ran forward, his pistol drawn. He paused on seeing the Duchess but fired twice at point-blank range.
Whether he was lucky or whether his firearms training in Belgrade had paid off, both bullets hit their targets.
