Vespasian died from the shits. His last words were "Vae puto deus fio" allegedly.

It's not the most funniest death and it's not entirely sure what exactly caused it. But Alexander the motherfucking Great died of fever.

Also Frederick Barbarossa just drowned on his way to the holy land.

>Summoned to the Roman emperor by a Roman soldier during the capture of Sicily
It was the sacking of Syracuse and he wasn't being summoned, his house was being looted.

Beria's finest achievement.

>>300054

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lavrentiy_Beria#Stalin.27s_death\

"Khrushchev wrote in his memoirs that Beria had, immediately after Stalin's stroke, gone about "spewing hatred against [Stalin] and mocking him." When Stalin showed signs of consciousness, Beria dropped to his knees and kissed his hand. When Stalin fell unconscious again, Beria immediately stood and spat"


Aaahahhahahahhaahaha its just like my Saturday morning cartoons.

We don't know that. He could have been either fallen sick with typhus or have been poisoned. He was not popular with everyone.

Beria was stupendously wicked, he reminds me a little of Wormtongue.

My mistake.
The Roman commander had, however, ordered that Archimedes' not be injured. Archimedes was at this point infamous to the Romans for having defended Syracuse from the naval assault via catapults.The Roman soldier who did the killing obviously took no notice.

What are you doing are the history board?
>>

No that's not really what happened. Benjamin and his buddies were fleeing the Nazi occupation of France and made it to the Spanish border after a long and arduous journey. At the border they requested safe passage into Spain but the guards refused to let them in. Figuring he'd never make it to freedom and that he was about to be captured and killed by the Nazis, Benjamin took his cyanide pill that night.

In the morning the guards told them they could make their way into Spain and that everything was gonna be fine.

>whilst a young Thracian girl played the flute to him
Flute girls were usually used for sexual purposes as well, so he most likely died during sex

Barbarossa jumped into a river in full plate and his life guard was too stumped to save him.
They had all been travelling in the hot sun for days and Barbarossa was literally dying to get his sweat off.

That´s fucking sad, yo. Gaudí was awesome, he more or less invented Modernisme, which is basically catalonian Art Nouveau on LSD.

But yeah, pretty ironic death desu.
