No matter which date is accepted (June 13, June 25, July 13 or July 25), Princip was 19 when he shot the Archduke.
The Princip family were at the bottom of the pecking order.
They survived like medieval serfs, obliged to give almost all their meagre farming earnings to overlords.
Muddled theories, often as batty as they are unverifiable, have circulated ever since Princip fired his Browning 9mm pistol on June 28, 1914: he was working for the Freemasons, an agent of the Russian secret service, a diehard Serbian nationalist, an unwitting puppet of German warmongers.
Even the most famous photograph of Princip, showing him ‘‘under arrest’’ after the assassination, is problematic.
