His death was significant because nobody knew what the heck happened to him. There are 5 or more different theories on how he died but they have so little evidence to prove anything Theories are that he had committed suicide due to his family. Another is that people think it was a homicide considering the ct scans and the damage to his leg. But most people believe that he had fallen backwards or accidentally hurt himself. I would be very mad if i accidentally killed myself and i was a king that had a great Life..
