On June 28, 1914, Archduke Franz Ferdinand survived a bomb plot in Sarajevo. In our timeline, the assassins had a second chance to kill the heir apparent when his car took a wrong turn near conspirator Gavrilo Princip. In this timeline, Franz Ferdinand's car turned left onto Franz Josef Street, denying Princip the opportunity to carry out the plot.
