This list includes only the first top 100 oldest validated people ever, for more see Oldest validated supercentenarians All-Time.
This is a list of the 100 oldest verified people in world history. In order to be included on this list, an age claim must have been verified by an international, rather than a national, body. The title of oldest verified person in history belongs to French woman Jeanne Calment (1875–1997), who lived to be 122 years, 164 days, and the title of oldest verified man in history belongs to Japanese Jiroemon Kimura (1897–2013), who lived 116 years, 54 days.

A supercentenarian is considered "verified" if his or her claim has been accepted by an international body that specifically engages in longevity research, such as the Gerontology Research Group or the Guinness Book of World Records.
