I remember reading something about George Washington traveling in the wilderness, returning from a French outpost, being in the company of the Kings' men and colonial militia, meeting and killing the French Ambassador, which ignited the French and Indian War in 1754. In the past the killing of an Ambassador often resulted in war.

(Going Galt as fast as I can.)
Genghis Khan sent a trade caravan and later ambassadors to the Khwarezmid Empire, modern day Iran, Afghanistan, parts of Central Asia, to propose diplomacy and trade. The governor of a province and the Shah himself humiliated and executed them. Genghis did not take too kindly to this and launched one of the most devastating invasions in human history. The Khwarezmid Empire was wiped off the face of the map and cities and their populations were obliterated.
