Napoleon Bonaparte, soldier, general and emperor, desired the European union. He abdicated twice and in 1814 was confined to Santa Helena island. From the biographic description of his last exile, we have extracted a description of the disease that lead him to die. We postulate that he had a gastric lymphoma.
