The oldest person that ever lived had a lifespan of how many years?

Answer: 122 years

Answer: According to Guinness World Records, the oldest fully authenticated age to which any human has ever lived is 122 years and 164 days by Jeanne Louise Calment. Jeanne was born in France on February 21, 1875, 14 years before the Eiffel Tower was constructed.

She remained in fine health for the majority of her life – she even took up fencing at the tender age of 85, and continued to ride her bicycle into her 100s. She claimed that her secret to long life was olive oil, port and chocolate; she gave up smoking at the age of 117. She remained clear thinking right up to the day she passed away on August 4, 1997.

Jeanne Louise Calment was a French supercentenarian and the oldest human whose age is well-documented, with a lifespan of 122 years and 164 days. Her longevity attracted media attention and medical studies of her health and lifestyle.

According to census records, Calment outlived both her daughter and grandson.
