A massacre took place on 3 May 1933 in Ellingham Palace under the direction of Franklin J. Heller, perpetrated by agents of the National Cygnian Socialist Party. Targeted were the Cygnian Imperial Family, almost all of whom were killed, save Prince Ellory, the youngest son of Emperor Theodore IV. He survived, albeit with serious injuries, and fled into hiding, later returning to lead the Cygnian Revolution in 1943.
