How will you feel that someone you know, who is very old and living a life with a name and later you find out that the person is not herself but her daughter?
As confusing as it sounds, it is also extremely bizarre to even think of such a situation but this seems to be a true story according to a few researchers in Russia.
The woman who lived 122 years 164 days and finally left the world in 1997 has been the woman to live the most. She has her name in the Guinness Books of World Records with the same claim. But looks like this was a fraud all this while.
The researchers have been claiming that Jeanne Calment was a French woman who holds the record of being the oldest person in history but the researchers are now in doubt that if the woman really was who she told she was?
The researchers have been claiming that the woman who lived so long was not Jeanne Calment but it was her daughter Yvonne Calment.
No one knows why would she do it but the researchers say that she did it to save herself from paying a large amount of tax on the inheritance she was supposed to receive after her mother was dead.
Nikolai Zak, who is a mathematician and gerontologist Valeri Novosselov interviewed on the same issues and say that they have found evidence that supports the statements beliefs they have developed for the circumstances.
Zak says that they have found evidence so closely related to the circumstances that surely give the signs of the theory we have created to be true.
Yvonne Calment, the daughter died in 1934 in the official records due to a lung infection. But Mr. Zak claims that the woman that died was not Yvonne but her mother Jeanne Calment who was 59 years old then. The daughter then took her mother’s id to carry on her life.
Mr. Zak has a copy of Jeanne’s id card according to which, her hair color, eye color, and her height all changed. He also said that most of the pictures of the two women were discarded and burned down so that no proofs are left. Only a very few pictures were available to them.
The mayor of Arles, the place where the oldest French woman lived said that all the acquisitions being made are just not true and that the woman was herself.
The doctors even said that they had doubt about the woman’s age because her muscles were not like of other people her age. She was stronger and fitter. She also never had any problem with dementia which made them all think.
If it was the daughter that died when she died at the age of 99 and not 122.
