Jane Austen’s Death – Could it have been Arsenic Poisoning? — 1 Comment

  1. It is not beyond the realms of possibility that our dearest Jane died of arsenic poisoning, albeit an accidental death due to the ignorance of the properties of arsenic that existed at the time and the medications that contained the dreaded substance. Nothing that we surmise in the present day can change the way that she died. We must remember that medicine was somewhat primitive at that time compared to today. We will forever celebrate her life and dwell not at length about her death. Long live Jane in our hearts and minds.
