• Tom Canty is just a character in a novel, Mark Twain's "The Prince and the Pauper". As for Edward's death, we don't always know the causes of death of prominent people in the past, because the doctors at the time knew so little and weren't always able to tell what was going on inside their patients' bodies. They could even make things worse by using dangerous treatments. Edward's symptoms suggest that tuberculosis was the cause of death, and that's what was reported at the time.
