Episode 159 - The Nepalese Royal Massacre
On 1 June 2001 a bloody massacre unfolded within the palace walls of the Nepalese royal family in Kathmandu. It left 10 members of the royal family dead - including the king, the queen and all 3 of their children.
These killings sparked dangerous conspiracy theories across the globe, started a civil war and set in motion a series of events that led directly to the fall of the entire royal dynasty of Nepal.
