Tallest Man In Recorded History

Many religions and mythologies speak of giants, with some offering vague descriptions and others offering very specific measurements. The Holy Bible referenced Goliah’s height, six cubits, but since he comes from a period where science cannot document his existence, others get more attention. The real-life Goliath happens to be the tallest man in recorded history as well as the tallest person overall. His name was Robert Pershing Wadlow. He never stopped growing in his sadly short life, allowing him to reach the height of 8 feet, 11 inches. It is impossible for anyone will ever reach this type of height ever again.
