Arsenic is the poison of choice for many murders in reality and fiction alike. In the 15th and 16th century, the notorious Borgias of Italy used arsenic for political assassinations. Some writers have suggested that Napoleon was poisoned by arsenic-tainted wine served to him while he lived in exile.

Symptoms of arsenic poisoning include a garlic smell to the victim's breath and bodily fluids. Ingestion of a large dose leads to vomiting and severe, bloody diarrhea, followed by weakening and eventual death.
