Jeanne Calment at age 119. Considered the oldest person ever, she died in 1997 aged 122.

This is a list of the 100 verified oldest people in world history. In order to be included on this list, an age claim must have been verified by an international, rather than a national, body. As of its creation, this list contained only two living supercentenarians, including the oldest of them, Japanese man Jiroemon Kimura. The title of oldest verified person in history belongs to Frenchwoman Jeanne Calment (1875 - 1997), who lived to be 122 years and 164 days old.

Currently the oldest verified living person is Japanese supercentenarian Jiroemon Kimura.

Of the people on this list 5 are male and 95 are female.See note below the list for updates/corrections!


List

The following is the list of verified oldest people, arranged in descending order, based on each individual's age in years and days. A "year" typically refers to a calendar year, the time between two dates with the same name. However, years may be of different lengths due to the presence or absence of a leap day within the year, or to the conversion of dates from one calendar to another. A supercentenarian is considered "verified" if his or her claim has been accepted by an international body that specifically engages in longevity research, such as the Gerontology Research Group or the Guinness Book of World Records. This list automatically updates the ages of those still living to reflect the current date (today is 29 October 2020).
