A Cranial Trauma was the Cause of Death of Charles VIII of France (1470-1498)



World Neurosurgery 105: 745-748



This article summarizes the reign, life and death, of Charles VIII of France. Also we intend to investigate current views on his cause of death, contradictions and opinions of his biographers. Poisoning, disease, and injury are the possible causes of his death but, according to the literature, cranial trauma was the most probable cause of death of the King Charles VIII of France.
