Usually occurring in a Medieval setting, a king, duke, or what-have-you invites all the nobles of the land over for a banquet. Then, in the middle of the festivities, he has them all executed. The trope is not limited to this setting, though. It can be applied to any occasion when someone invites people to an event with the purpose of killing them.
