During a violent storm on his first return voyage, Columbus, then approximately
41, suffered an attack of what was believed at the time to be gout. During later
years, he was plagued with influenza and other fevers, bleeding from the eyes,
and prolonged attacks of gout. The suspected attacks increased in duration
and severity, sometimes leaving Columbus bedridden for months at a time,
and culminated in his death 14 years later at age 54.
