King Carlos and Son Assassinated
Assassins killed King Carlos of Portugal as well as his son and heir, Prince Luis Filipe. The assassins also tried to kill the Queen. The assassins were led by a sergeant in the Portuguese Army. Their hope was to provoke a revolution. Although panic ensued, a revolution did not materialize and Prince Manuel (younger son of the King) succeeded his father.
