The oldest surviving woman comes from Turkey


Exactly 215.16 cm

24 years in the Guinness Book of Records

With a height of 215.16 centimeters, Ramisa Gilji is officially the tallest living woman in the world. The Guinness Book of Records awarded the 24-year-old Turkish woman the world record on Wednesday. One reason for their record size is what is known as Weaver’s syndrome, which leads to large growths.

The young woman mostly uses a wheelchair, but she can also walk with the help of a rolling machine.

Romesa Gilji, 24, entered the Guinness Book of Rocks as the tallest living woman in the world with a height of 215 centimeters.

Gilji has been in the Guinness Book of Records since 2014

Gilji from the northern Anatolian town of Safranbolu was listed in the Guinness Book of Records as early as 2014 – at that time as the world’s oldest surviving teenager. Since then, she has been using attention to advocate for other people with rare diseases. “You can turn any flaw into an advantage,” said the 24-year-old, “so you have to accept yourself as you are. Be aware of your potential and do your best.”

The greatest man alive is also from Turkey

The tallest living man in the world is also a Turk: according to Guinness, Sultan Kosen measured 251 cm in 2018. The height of the tallest woman who ever lived was 246.3 cm: Zeng Jinlian of China died in 1982.
