A woman who claimed to be the world’s oldest died in the Georgian village of Sachino, it was reported Sunday.

Antisa Khvichava claimed to be 132 years old, making her not only the oldest woman, but also the oldest person in the world. Radio Free Europe, citing local reports, reported she was born on July 8, 1880, based on her official documents.

However, many experts have disputed her claims and said she probably was not that old, according to the broadcaster. They said her documents were forged or simply incorrect.

L. Stephen Coles of the Gerontology Research Group told The Wall Street Journal in 2007 that if Khvichava’s records were true, it means she would have given birth to her youngest son at the age of 60. At the time, Georgia’s justice ministry verified her claims.

Khvichava, who purportedly lived through both World War I and World War II, said she was able to live so long by consuming 50 grams of grape “chacha,” a type of local alcohol after breakfast every day. :huh:

She had 12 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren, along with four great-great grandchildren.

I don't see why she had any reason to fake her birth date.

My great great grandma died at 98. she had 7 husbands in her life and 8 kids. She was born in 1899. that is some crazy ****.

So why would this woman get a fake Birth Cert? maybe she was that old. and people have had babies at 60 before. VERY rare but it happened. Shouldn't the city have copies of the birth? I mean its the old Soviet Union so how can she have records but not the city?
