Correct response: Who is Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart?
More information about Final Jeopardy:
When Mozart died in 1791, he was buried in an unmarked grave, his remains lost. The more fanciful theories surrounding his death included that he was poisoned by a student who was upset that Mozart had been philandering (namely, with the student’s wife), but 21st century researchers decided to match the symptoms Mozart had been reporting shortly before his death (swelling, back pain) to other disease outbreaks in Vienna between 1790 and 1792. It was discovered that there was a severe outbreak of strep throat in a nearby military hospital near the time of Mozart’s 1791 death, and it has since been surmised that Mozart died from complications from that outbreak.
