Point of Divergence

It is June 28, 1914. Franz Ferdinand, the expected heir to the throne of Austria-Hungary, was riding in a Graf & Stift automobile with his wife, Sophie in Sarajevo. Gavrilo Princip was sitting in a cafe. Approximately at 10:45 a.m., Princip ran out of the cafe, grabbed out his pistol, and started shooting at the car without looking. He ended up shooting 3 bullets, the first bullet shot one of the headlights of the car, the second bullet pierced Ferdinand in the right shoulder, and the last one grazed Sophie's left leg. The car quickly ran off to the hospital, and Princip ran off. Ferdinand and his came out of the hospital alive, but paralyzed in the right shoulder and left leg. Soon after, Gavrilo Princip is caught and sentenced to 15 years in prison. But just a month after his sentence, Princip escapes out of prison and illegally moves to Great Britain and changes his name to Richard Pensworth. On July 16, 1914 in Manchester, while King George V was giving a speech about how war is so close to being declared, Princip was in a stolen car. At exactly 3:41 p.m., Princip filed 5 bullets at the King. The first shot hit his left arm, the second hit his throat, the third hit his ear, the fourth hit his head, and the final one missed him due to the King already falling down. After the King is taken to the hospital, Princip is arrested. On August 1. 1914, while King Edward VIII was coronated, the country started to go into an ecomonic recession.
