* One of these triggered the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gothic_War_(376%E2%80%93382) 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.

* 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.

* ''Stockholm's Bloodbath'' (Yes, it's actually called that). Three days of party. Three days of massacre. The Swedish nobility had surrendered Stockholm to king Kristian "[[WrittenByTheWinners The Tyrant]]" II of Denmark in exchange for amnesty. His coronation was celebrated at the castle of three nights. On the third the gates where shut. Then they where all accused of heresy and decapitaded in the square outside. [[KickTheDog Along with 50 other people]].

** A different version of this story happens in the ''Literature/TheSagaOfTheVolsungs''. Here Atli, the Hun King, is the one who plots the murder of his wife's brothers. They suspect a trap but go and both die. Gudrun then murders her two sons by Atli and feeds him their hearts. She then stabs Atli dead and burns the Hall down.
** Earlier in the Saga, a similar event happens. King Siggeir marries Signy, daughter of King Volsung, but is jealous of her twin Sigmund getting a sword he wanted. Signy lures King Volsung and his ten sons to him with claims of celebration, but murders Volsung and has his ten sons chained at a forest to be devoured by a wolf.

* History books in the TabletopGame/{{Ravenloft}} D&D setting record that Lord Leo Dilisnya engineered a massacre at the wedding of Sergei von Zarovich, attempting to depose the Von Zaroviches as the reigning noble house of Barovia. Only those in-the-know are aware that the bridal couple and many others really died thanks to Sergei's jealous elder brother, Strahd, who went berserk after his murder of Sergei drove the bride, Tatyana, to suicide rather than into his arms. As the murder also cursed Strahd as a nigh-unstoppable vampire, he probably killed as many or more than Leo's assassins in his rage.
