The tallest man in history is Robert Wadlow. Born and raised in the United States, he was over 2 meters tall at the age of 10 and weighed 100 kilograms. An American citizen is not alive today, but no one has reached the size of his height at the time of his death.
Robert Wadlow grew up throughout his life. Since she did not have the right clothes and shoes, she had to make them to order.
According to the Guinness Book of Records, the tallest man in history – Robert Wadlow – is 272 centimeters tall. He was born in 1918. As a baby, his parents did not notice any differences. However, at the age of one year he weighed 13 kilograms and was examined by doctors.
When Wadlow was 7 years old, he started wearing clothes for teenagers 10 years older than him. At the age of 8 he reached a height of 187 centimeters.
At the age of 18, he entered law school and tried to live like his peers. However, because he is very tall, he has a lot of problems and feels uncomfortable. However, Robert Wadlow soon joined the Ringling Circus and began performing under the pseudonym “Giant of Alton.”
Before he became famous, the “kind giant” (as his colleagues called him because of his gentle nature) had a lot of problems. The clothes made to order cost a lot of money. He also ate a lot because of his size. His height also had a negative effect on his health. He suffered from heart problems, circulatory problems, and joint pain.
At the age of 20, Robert Wadlow was unable to walk on his own and had to walk on crutches. However, it was this crutch that caused the death. The crutch is very painful and the wound becomes infected. Doctors operated on his leg and tried to save him, but the medicine at the time was not enough.
The tallest man in history died at the age of 22. At that time he was 272 centimeters tall and weighed about 200 kilograms.
