Aztec emperor Montezuma II is killed on this day in the year 1520. Various sources ascribe his death to different parties: some assert that he was killed by other Aztecs who were pissed at him for selling out and not building a wall to keep the Spaniards out; others claimed he was stabbed by Spaniards in the party of Hernán Cortés.

For, on this day in 1934, Hitler ordered the killing of leaders of the S.A. storm troopers and others in what became known as the "Night of the Long Knives." Nazi head of propaganda Josef Goebbels claimed that Ernst Roehm and others were plotting to overthrow Hitler, and maybe they were.
