Modern European Royal Murder Victims

The people on this list were not killed as punishment for a crime or for anything they had done. They were not killed in war. They were murdered, in some cases by crazy or disturbed people, but in most cases by evil thugs who hated them for who they were, because they were royalty. It is this kind of hatred that established the chilling principle that guided so much modern violence: the idea that innocent people could be killed if their deaths were deemed necessary in order to build a utopian society. But the violence that claimed these lives led only to more terror, to the deaths of millions of innocent people whose lives were deemed unnecessary by Jacobins, Communists, Nazis, and other totalitarians. It all began with Regicide. May these victims rest in peace.
