Magdalena Hernandez de Gonzalez (Spanish: Hernández de González; 13 July 1900 – 20 July 2012) was a Colombian supercentenarian whose age is currently unvalidated by the Gerontology Research Group (GRG).


Hernandez claimed to have been born on 7 August 1901, but later research suggested she was a year and two months older. She was daughter of Benedicto Rodriguez and Rosenda Hernandez, but since they were single at the time, she only adapted the last name of her mother. She grew up with her maternal grandparents, Benevo Hernandez and Carmen Rincon. She married Esteban Gonzalez and had 9 children with him, 5 who were deceased at the time of her death.

Hernandez died in San Gil, Santader, Colombia on 20 July 2012 at the age of 112 years, 7 days (claimed 110 years, 348 days). She may have been the oldest living person in Colombia at the time of her death.
