Shortest Man In World History
- Year Set: 2012
- Who Set It: Chandra Bahadur Dangi
- Nationality: Nepal
Chandra Bahadur Dangi is an interesting case. There are many short people in the world today and in history, but his look was quite different compared to most. Dangi was a primordial dwarf, meaning he will have a smaller body size in all facets of his life, unlike a normal dwarf that could grow more in some stages. He measured in at 54.6cm or 1 foot, 9 and a half inches in height. This beat the previous record held by Gul Muhammad who was 57cm tall. We are also pretty sure Dangi is the shortest person to have ever lived as well. Unlike other smaller people, Dangi also lived for a long time. He passed in 2015, at age 76.
