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.

The killing of Jumonville was an international incident, but he was a military officer not an ambassador.

Weren’t ambassadors selected as representatives of the government and thus usually friends or family of the leader because that’s the only person you could trust to speak for you?
