The French woman documented as the world's oldest person at 122 may be a fraud, according to Russian researchers.

A 2018 study suggests that the woman known as Jeanne Calment was actually Jeanne's daughter, Yvonne, who allegedly assumed her mother's identity after her death in 1934 in order to not have to pay the inheritance tax.

When "Jeanne" died in 1997 at the supposed age of 122 and 164 days, she was actually thought to have been just 99, the researchers claim.

Irish mother died in airport fall on surprise visit home

Irish mother died in airport fall on surprise visit home A young Irish mother who fell to her death in a Spanish airport was on her way to surprise her father with a Christmas visit when the tragedy occurred. Judith Coughlan (28) was on a walkway in Alicante-Elche airport when she fell over a railing and dropped around 18 metres to the ground below on Sunday. The mother of two was killed instantly. Her partner had dropped her at the airport minutes earlier and was not aware of the tragedy until the authorities contacted him. "Judith was on her way to surprise me with a visit home for Christmas. I had no idea she was coming," her father Brian said from his home in Arklow, Co Wicklow.

The ‘ world ’ s oldest woman’ was 122 when she died. A researcher says she was lying about her age.: Richard Overton, America' s oldest World War II A Russian mathematician is casting doubt on the age of Jeanne Calment, who has been celebrated as the world ' s oldest documented person for years.

He points to photos where the mother and daughter appear to resemble one another more closely He also says that her abilities and the condition of her skin in photos did not correspond with what If Jeanne is unseated as the world ’ s oldest woman, the title will pass to American Sarah Knauss from

Gerontologist Valery Novoselov, who initially called for the investigation into Jeanne's age, said he first became suspicious because Jeanne didn't fit typical data trends.

"Jeanne is a dot away from the main trend," Novoselov told the Life Extension Advocacy Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to extending the human lifespan, in an interview. "... Whenever a new record is set, the person dies several days or several weeks later, very rarely several months later. However, we are never speaking about years apart, definitely not several years."

Officially, it's said that Jeanne's daughter died in 1934, but both Novoselov and the mathematician who helped analyze the data on supercentenarians for the study, Nikolai Zak, believe things are reversed.

Was oldest ever woman a fraud? Russian researchers claim 122-year-old was actually her 99-year-old daughter

Was oldest ever woman a fraud? Russian researchers claim 122-year-old was actually her 99-year-old daughter Jeanne Calment, from Arles, France, died in 1997, at the age of 122 years and 164 days, making her the oldest officially recognised person in history. However, Russian researchers claim she was in fact Yvonne Calment, Jeanne's daughter, and had assumed her mother's identity to avoid paying inheritance tax. © Provided by Associated Newspapers Limited Mathematician Nikolai Zak and gerontologist Valeri Novosselov studied biographies, interviews and contemporary photos, and claim their circumstantial evidence supports their theory.

Jeanne Calment was once the oldest officially documented living person in history. Now Russian researcher Nikolay Zak has published a paper posing the theory that Calment actually died in 1934, and her daughter Yvonne then took her identity !

"We think that in reality it was Jeanne who had died, aged almost 59, and her daughter took her name and personality," Novoselov said.

But why would she do that, if that is, in fact, the case? As is often the answer to life's mysteries, Novoselov believes money may have played a role.

"The 1930s were dire years for the family. Her mother-in-law and her father both died in 1931, and the family had to pay huge inheritance taxes in each case," Novoselov said. "... If Jeanne had died, her daughter Yvonne and her husband would have to pay a lot of money.

"However, if it were Yvonne who died," he added. "the family wouldn’t have to pay any taxes, as she didn’t own the homestead."

Ultimately, the only way to determine if the record is a fraud is to exhume both bodies to determine how old they truly are.

Should the Russian researchers' theory prove true, the record will pass to American Sarah Knauss, who died in 1999 when she 119.
