* The House of Hohenstaufen, a clan of powerful, talented German nobles which produced seven kings and emperors of Germany between 1138 and 1254, was hunted to extinction by their arch-enemies, popes Urban IV and Clement IV, and the papacy's ally, Charles of Anjou. Holy Roman Emperor Friedrich II was in constant conflict with the papacy, and his sons and descendants paid the price. His favorite, but illegitimate, son, Enzo of Sardinia, was captured by his family's enemies the Guelphs (a faction sympathetic to the Pope) in 1249 and imprisoned for decades until his death. Friedrich II's only legitimate son, the last Hohenstaufen emperor Konrad IV, died under mysterious circumstances in 1254. In 1266, his half-brother Manfred was killed in battle by Charles of Anjou, who'd been promised Manfred's kingdom (Sicily) by the pope. Charles also captured and imprisoned all of Manfred's children. Two years later, Manfred's nephew (Konrad IV's son) sixteen-year-old Konradin attempted to seize his family's domains in Italy from Charles of Anjou. He was captured and publically executed. A few months later, Konradin's bastard half-brother, Corradino, was also captured and murdered by Charles of Anjou, finally extinguishing the Hohenstaufen in the male line. * UsefulNotes/{{Nero}}: The last Julio-Claudian emperor. The bloodline of UsefulNotes/{{Augustus}} and Creator/GaiusJuliusCaesar ended with him.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A5ecU2yGDpM This song]] about an old member of the Communist Party captures the sense of tragedy of being the last of a movement that seemed on the brink of changing the world for so many years. It also recognizes that the failure of that movement can be traced to a large degree to the sins of that movement (slavish devotion to Moscow, opportunistic betrayal of principle for quick popularity)
