Which historical figures died the funniest, most unexpected or anti-climatic death?
>Stirner was killed due to an insect bite
Summoned to the Roman emperor by a Roman soldier during the capture of Sicily
Told the soldier to wait whilst he finished his geometry problem
Soldier didn't like the rudeness and killed him.
the death of Walter Benjamin is just the saddest thing ever, he was about to be freed but he thought they were arresting him so he took cyanide.
on the funny side, the legend says that Cavour died for a stroke after a turboblowjob
Death by beer tsunami count?
No one well known died there, but man, what a way to go.
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.
"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.
>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.
We don't know that. He could have been either fallen sick with typhus or have been poisoned. He was not popular with everyone.
Was receiving a meal from a gracious host, started shitting blood until he died.
You're forgetting the best part: he was ran over by a tram whose course HE DESIGNED HIMSELF when he was redesigning barcelona.
So essentialy the tracks he drafted succesfully took him to his 'final destination'
Talk about insane irony
Beria was stupendously wicked, he reminds me a little of Wormtongue.
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.
>A variety of sources have given accounts of Plato's death. One story, based on a mutilated manuscript, suggests Plato died in his bed, whilst a young Thracian girl played the flute to him.
>Plato was literally killed by music
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.
Holy shit please be bait
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.
Felix Faure, 7th president of France
Faure died suddenly from apoplexy in the Élysée Palace on 16 February 1899, at a critical juncture while engaged in sexual activities in his office with 30-year-old Marguerite Steinheil. It has been widely reported that Felix Faure had his fatal seizure while Steinheil was fellating him
