Best Answer

Gavril Princip, a 20-year-old Serbian nationalist, acted alone when he shot the Austrian Crown Prince, Archduke Franz Ferdinand along with his morganatic wife Sophie, Sarajevo 12 August, 1914.

The Archduke's last words were "It is nothing" before collapsing onto his already dead wife. This regicide is widely acknowledged by most historians as the catalyst that brought on World War I and it's subsequent decimation of nearly every family, institution and a way of life never to be seen again after 1917.
