7 sh. I m always been fascinated by the what ifs surrounding the family of the last tsar of Russia not so much what was going on in Austria Hungary that helped precipitate the fall of the Romanovs I decided to read this book on the strength of some of Greg King s other works and was not disappointed He paints a very human picture of Franz Ferdinand and Sophie and perhaps most movingly the struggles of their three children Discussion of the Habsburg court slights and injuries and intrigues do become repetitive That doesn t outweigh this book s overall excellence

 The Assassination of the Archduke: Sarajevo 1914 and the Murder That Changed the World

124. This is an excellent book that fills a major gap in the story of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Countess Sophie namely what happened to their children and grandchildren after they were assassinated So much of their lives had been spent trying to plan for their future after the Archduke was forced to essentially disinherit their heirs from their imperial entitlements that even they could hardly have imagined how history would inflict even greater hardships and deprivations on their progeny in the decades ahead largely unrelated to the circumstances of their deaths I strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in the era or for that matter in a too often overlooked real life romance that outshines most of the recent legends that rarely live up to their billings La bondad de los extraños is an excellent book that fills a major gap Willy the Wizard in the story of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Countess Sophie namely what happened to their children and grandchildren after they were assassinated So much of their lives had been spent trying to plan for their future after the Archduke was forced to essentially disinherit their heirs from their Off-side imperial entitlements that even they could hardly have Enséñame más inflict even greater hardships and deprivations on their progeny Wonder (The Books of Marvella, in the decades ahead largely unrelated to the circumstances of their deaths I strongly recommend this book to anyone Chicago Billionaires - Contemporary Romance Series Boxed Set interested The Valhalla Prophecy (Nina Wilde & Eddie Chase in the era or for that matter The Tunnel in a too often overlooked real life romance that outshines most of the recent legends that rarely live up to their billings

Ippi. I really enjoyed this book The fate of Archduke Franz Ferdinand is probably one of the most famous events in modern history yet for most of us so little is known about him his family and the circumstances surrounding his death While the tragedy of Czar Nicholas II and his family is well known and much has been written about it the tragedy of Franz Ferdinand has been mostly ignored This is unfortunate because had he lived and succeeded to the throne there might never have been a WW1 and by extension a WW2 a Soviet Union or Cold War Franz Ferdinand was a forward looking man and his plans for the empire may have stabilized Europe and even Russia The Romanovs were a dieing dynasty and not much could have saved them but Franz Ferdinand may have changed history And the fate of his family is no less a tragedy than that of the Romanovs Franz Ferdinand and Sophie were truly a love story and the children lost their entire world after the deaths of their parents And the repercussions of their death continued to follow them their whole lives just as it did for the rest of the worldWas there a conspiracy to kill him in Serbia According to the authors it seems the answer is yes and the Prime Minister knew it Did it include Russia Did the conspiracy reach all the way to Emperor Franz Joseph The world may never know but it is certainly possible The book is really fascinating and I would highly recommend it Definitely worth five stars

    This is my first book on Archduke Ferdinand, and I found it incredibly engaging.

This book fit the third category fo

    While most people know that the murder of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie in Sarajevo on 28th June 1914 was the spark that ignited the First World War, few know little or anything about the Archduke himself and the life he lived before that fateful day. As we approach the 100th anniversary of his murder this highly topical book by Greg King and Sue Woolmans provides an interesting and detailed account of the lives of Franz Ferd
