A Georgian woman who claimed to be 132-years-old - making her the world's oldest human being ever - has died,a spokeswoman for the former Soviet republic's Justice Ministry said.
Antisa Khvichava claimed to be 132 years old, making her not only the oldest woman, but also the oldest person in the world.
Georgian authorities have said they hold Khvichava's Soviet-era passport registration, which shows her date of birth as July 8, 1880, and her pension book issued in the 1960s.Khvicheva's age was never officially proven.
She was said to have had 12 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren, and four great-great grandchildren .
If Mrs Khvichava really was 132 when she died it would mean that her now 72-year-old son Mikhail was born when his mother was 60
When asked what kept her going for such a long time.She said a daily shot of chacha, a strong spirit known as Georgian vodka or wine vodka. She said she drank a tot every morning after breakfast.
If her claim about age is accepted then Khvichava was just 10 years younger than Russia's first communist leader Vladimir Lenin and was born one year before the death of celebrated Russian novelist Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Britain's The Independent reported.
Besse Cooper, officially recognised as the world’s oldest person, was 116 in July, who was born in Tennessee, now lives in the U.S. state of Georgia.Frenchwoman Jeanne Louise Calment, who died in a nursing home in Ales aged 122 years and 164 days in 1997, has the oldest-ever age verified by Guinness.
