Asano committed seppuku due to his failed attempt to murder a court official named Yoshinaka Kira. The forty-seven samurai serving under Asano became ronin, or masterless samurai, after his death. Roughly two years later, the forty-seven ronin avenged him by killing Kira. They committed seppuku afterwards.
