This article does not claim to show definitively how Bram Stoker died. Its rather more modest aim is to analyze his death certificate, collate the data it offers with other known facts, and come to a reasonable hypothesis as to what actually killed him. A slightly more risky aim is to apply what we learn to the “mystery” illness he claimed to suffer from as a child, and see if any reasonable ideas emerge as to its nature. I emphasize the word “reasonable,” not as the opposite of “unreasonable,” but of “certain.” Any conclusions this article reaches are possible, but I make no claim that they are true.
