How did Napoleon die?  We still don't know the exact answer.
Hey, this is great conspiracy stuff!

Napoleon in his later years both in Europe and in St. Helena was increasingly getting worse in terms of health.  When exiled on St. Helena, he was very bored and lethargic.  The damp weather was even a deeper burden to him.  The died, depressed, frustrated, ill, and full of dislike for his gaoler on the island, Sir Hudson Lowe.  There is good evidence that he was poisened with arsenic, introduced into the Emperor's wine supply.
There is another argument.  His father died at age 43 of a perforated stomach ulcer.  Which his grandfather died of too.  So maybe he died of this next to slowly being poisened by the arsenic.
