died a violent death over 2000 years ago: stabbed in the chest, decapitated, and severed at the torso. Tossed in a bog in Ireland, his remains were preserved until his discovery in 2003. His manicured nails suggest he led a life of leisure.
His nipples were cut off. Sucking a king's nipples was an act of submission in Iron Age Ireland, so this insult may have been to prevent him from ruling. It's thought he was killed in a ritual sacrifice, perhaps after poor weather or harvests. He was in his early 20's.
