mediumaevum:

During a feast in 1410, King Martin of Aragon (c. 1356-1410) died under very unfortunate circumstances.  
The combination of severe indigestion and uncontrollable laughter caused Martin to collapse at the dinner table.  It is speculated that he first gorged himself on either eel or goose, causing heartburn, but it was a joke that did him in. As John Doran reported in his book, “The History of Court Fools,” when Martin asked his jester where he had been recently, “the jester replied with: ‘Out of the next vineyard, where I saw a young deer hanging by his tail from a tree, as if someone had so punished him for stealing figs’.”  Perhaps the king was a little bit drunk too…
And other nine ways to die during the Middle Ages.
