Two versions of a painting showing Napoleone Buonaparte’s death:

• La morte di Napoleone.
La mort du Napoléon.

Two photos of death masks I wanted to make available.

What Napoléon I Bonaparte died from is written as debunking.  The main questions answered are:

• Did Napoléon die from cancer?
No, there is not enough evidence for that.
• Then what did he die from?
He was poisoned to death in such a way it was not obvious back then.

The questions of secondary importance debunked are:

• Did Napoléon die from hepatitis?
This explanation is insufficient.
• Did Napoléon die from drug abuse?
Contemporary eyewitness accounts don’t support this.
• Did Napoléon fall victim to environmental poisoning?
This hypothesis has been disproved since the points in time don’t mach.
• Did Napoléon live in poverty on Saint Helena?
He had nothing to complain of.
• Was Napoléon literary in jail?
It is metaphorical expressions taken literary.
• Could Napoléon have escaped from Saint Helena?
He was far too famous and supervised for that.
• Is it really Napoléon who is buried in the Invalids?
How the dead man was taken back to
Paris did not allow for any hoax.

If someone asks about a certain statement I can almost always specify the source to it.  (Yes, I have used Wiki­pedia as a source.  However, it is for the present name of the place where Napoléon was first buried.)  Turns it out that I have no source I am grateful for good sources.  If they contradict what I wave written I also change the text.
