This list comprises verified Danish supercentenarians (people from Denmark who have attained the age of at least 110 years), according to the Gerontology Research Group (GRG). The GRG reports that there have been two verified supercentenarians from Denmark.[1] According to the GRG, the oldest person ever from Denmark was Anne Matthiesen, who died in 1996, aged 111 years 114 days, but Danish born Christian Mortensen, aged 115 years 252 days, died in the United States in 1998. As of 29 March 2015, the GRG reports no verified living supercentenarians in Denmark, but that the oldest person living is Signe Højer, age 109 years, 148 days.
