On June 28, 1914, Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria, heir to the throne of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, was assassinated, thus starting the so-called Great War. This assassination attempt by the Bosnian Serb Gavrilo Princip was the trigger, and resulted in the Habsburg ultimatum to the Kingdom of Serbia. Immediately afterwards the old alliances of the 19th century were invoked, and a few weeks later, the carousel of declarations of war began. European colonial domination in Africa and Asia-Pacific meant the extension of the conflict on a global scale.
