The Nepalese Royal Massacre occurred on 1 June 2001, at a house in the grounds of the Narayanhity Royal Palace, the residence of the Nepalese monarchy. Prince Dipendra killed ten members of the family during a party or monthly reunion dinner of the royal family in the house. The dead included King Birendra of Nepal and Queen Aishwarya. Later, Prince Dipendra became de jure King of Nepal upon his father's death when in coma and died in hospital three days after the massacre without recovering from the coma. Birendra's brother Gyanendra became king after the massacre and the death of King Dipendra.
