Interesting People # 124 - Ludwig Van Beethoven

Tests carried out in 2006 show that Beethoven died of severe lead poisoning.

(He had suffered ill health much of his life and visited many doctors in search of a cure. He wrote a letter to a friend before he died urging researchers to examine his body, so that other people would not have to suffer as he did.)
