1st June 2001, was a black day in Nepali history when King Birendra, Queen Aishwarya, Prince Dipendra and 6 others were massacred inside the royal palace, Narayanhity.
Right after the royal massacre, Dipendra was proclaimed King of Nepal while in a coma. He died in the hospital three days after the slaughter without reacquiring consciousness.
The dark royal massacre is still an unsolved mystery.
