In 1844, in Lajore, India, the death of Raja Suchet Singh led to one of the greatest mass suicides of all time. When the Raja died, age old Hindu custom decreed that his widows be cremated with their husbands. The Raja had 10 wives and 300 concubines, and all of them sacrificed themselves on funeral pyres to be burnt along with their deceased husband.

And... not nearly as horrifying:
