Description
Two retired general practitioners—one now a medical journalist, the other a medical historian—here unearth and examine some of history's most intriguing maladies and the great persons who were shaped by them. Was Winston Churchill fit to rule? Why was Marie Antoinette's wedding night a letdown? What really cost Napoleon his victory at Waterloo? Why did Mary Tudor have phantom pregnancies and a deep voice? Why was Elizabeth I so terrified of going to the dentist? And what really killed Jane Austen? These and other medical mysteries are all explained in this fascinating romp through the medical notes of history.
