How did nationalism kill archduke Franz Ferdinand?

Nationalism allows the people of the country to govern and design their government structure. Monarchism has a royal family that rules a nation or many nations. The Monarch has the right to do whatever he or she feels to the people of his or her nation or nations. The people of Europe were fed up with the way they were treated by the aristocracy and the Monarchs of Austria/Hungary and Germany. They wanted their own self rule and government design. Some Serbians, who the Monarchs of Austria and Hungry treated like dirt (and some Bosnians I think), plotted together to kill the Archduke Ferdinand of Hungary. They wanted the monarchs gone and no longer able to rule and harm them. This his how nationalism killed Archduke Ferdinand. It was also the spark of the crazy war of World War 1.

What best explains the reasons Mark Antony offered the crown to Caesar three times?

It was a put up job to prove to the people that Caesar did not want to be a king. This meant that Caesar, as dictator-for-life, could have and exercise all the powers of a king, and the people of Rome (who had a history of anti-monarchism since the days of Tarquin) would not think of him as a king. As we see from later scenes with the Roman mob, they are indeed thick enough to fall for this kind of propaganda, and it is only a few (like Brutus and Cassius) who can see through it. Unfortunately, this kind of political machination is as effective now as it was then.
