How it All Started

Serbia was mad at Austria-Hungary because they did not have their own country's rights. Austria-Hungry thought that they could rule over Serbia. A person that lived in Bosnia but was from Serbia murdered Franz Ferdinand, Archduke/Prince of Austria-Hungary and his wife Sophia, Duchess of Austria-Hungary. Then Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia.
