The Marseilles murder was one of the most notorious crimes of the twentieth century. According to the basic and most common version, the initiator of the assassination of the king of Yugoslavia was the Macedonian-Bulgarian terrorist organisation VMRO (Internal Macedonian-Odrin revolutionary organization), supported the emigration of the Croatian "Ustasha" ("Rebel" – the Croatian Nazi movement) and also by the authorities of Hungary and Italy.

There is also a version that the murder was Nazi Germany ("the conspiracy of the Teutonic sword"), but this is not sufficient evidence. However, a large share of responsibility for the Marseilles murder lies with the authorities of the French national security.
