The "spark" that ignited WWI was the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand, heir of Austro-Hungarian Empire. The assassins that killed the royal couple was known as The Black Hand, but the man behind the trigger was Gavrilo Princip. This group did this task because they were Serbs who wanted to be a free nation (this is an act of nationalism). ~Cause: These terrorists caused Austria-Hungary to start a war with Serbia, which both alliances, Germany and Russia, then stepped in and began the domino effect of a total war.
