* The Banquet of Nyköping in 1317. The Swedish king Birger had invited his younger brothers, dukes Valdemar and Erik, to Castle Nyköping to feast at Christmas. After everyone had gotten drunk, king Birger imprisoned his brothers, put them in the oubliette of the castle and (so tradition says) threw the key into the nearby river. The dukes died from starvation. A large medieval key was found near the castle in 1847.

* In 1929, UsefulNotes/AlCapone learned that three men intended to betray him. He invited them to a lavish banquet, and once they'd eaten and drunk their fill ordered his bodyguards to tie the men to their chairs. Capone worked all three over with a [[BatterUp baseball bat]], before finally ordering his guards to shoot the would-be betrayers and dump the remains.

* One of these triggered the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gothic_War_(376-382) Gothic War of 376-382]]. The Goths, who were living in what amounted to a giant refugee camp in Thrace after fleeing across the Danube from the Huns, were badly mistreated by the Roman officials, chief among whom was the local ''comes'' (military commander) Lupercinus. Eventually, Lupercinus invited the Gothic chieftains to a banquet at his headquarters, ostensibly to discuss approaches to improving the situation. Instead, Lupercinus had the chieftains arrested as soon as they all felt safe, selected a few to keep as hostages, and executed the rest. Upon hearing what had happened, the Gothic tribes out in the camp rose in revolt. This might not have gone anywhere, but one of the hostages, Fritigern, the influential (and known Romanophile) chieftain of the Therevingi tribe, volunteered to talk the people down, to which Lupercinus agreed...but then Fritigern did nothing of the kind, instead encouraging the people to attack the Roman garrison. The Goths overwhelmed the Danube legions and proceeded to wage war against the Romans in their own back yard for six years.

** Later in the same book, Lady Tyrell (probably, the culprit is not explicit) murders Joffrey at his own wedding, framing Tyrion for the act. She was motivated as Joffrey was a {{Sadist}}ic [[TheCaligula King]] who was marrying her granddaughter and his death means his kinder and weaker-willed brother Tommen succeeds. Fans have [[FanNickname nicknamed]] this "The Purple Wedding".
** There is also the Dothraki Party in Vaes Dothrak. Viserys turns up drunk and threatens his pregnant sister Daenerys, telling her husband Khal Drogo he was promised an army to take back the Seven Kingdoms, and mocking them as they can't use weapons or shed blood in the city. Drogo promises Viserys a crown of gold and pours molten gold over his head.

* Two dubious medieval sources, ''De Instructione Principus'' by Gerald of Wales and the anonymous ''Prophecy of Berchán'', claim that Kenneth [=MacAlpin=], quasi-legendary first King of Scotland, disposed of the remnants of the Pictish royalty and nobility in this manner, using booby-trapped benches that dumped the sitters into spiked pits.
