Marie Brémont (1886–2001) was the second oldest Frenchwoman ever. Pictured in 1910, aged 23–24.

French supercentenarians are citizens, residents or emigrants from France who have attained or surpassed 110 years of age. As of January 2015, the Gerontology Research Group (GRG) had validated the longevity claims of 161 French supercentenarians.[1] The oldest French person currently alive is Lucile Randon, born 11 February 1904, aged 114 years, 310 days.[2] France was also home to the oldest human being ever whose longevity was well documented, Jeanne Calment, who lived in Arles and remembered meeting Vincent Van Gogh when she was a teenager.[3] She was born on 21 February 1875, and died on 4 August 1997, aged 122 years and 164 days. Nevertheless, a November 2018 study advanced the hypothesis that Calment's daughter Yvonne usurped her identity in 1934; Yvonne was born on 19 January 1898, which would have made her 99 years old upon her death in 1997.[4] The verified oldest French man ever was Maurice Floquet, a veteran of World War I who lived 111 years and 320 days across three centuries (1894–2006).[5]

Biographies[edit]

Marie Brémont[edit]

Marie Marthe Augustine Lemaitre Brémont (née Mesange; 25 April 1886 – 6 June 2001)[51] was the oldest recognized person in the world from November 2000 until her death at age 115 years 42 days.[52] Brémont is the second oldest French person to have ever lived, after longevity world record holder Jeanne Calment.[53]

She was born in Noëllet,[52] Western France on April 25, 1886 to a lumberjack. Her first husband, railroad worker Constant Lemaitre, was killed in the First World War. She married again to a taxi driver, Florentin Brémont, who died in 1967. She had no children.[51] Over the course of her life, she worked as a farmer, as well as in a pharmaceutical factory, as a nanny and as a seamstress. At 103, she was hit by a car and broke her arm as a result.[54] She died at her retirement home in Candé, Maine-et-Loire.

Germaine Haye[edit]

Germaine Haye (née Germain; 10 October 1888 – 18 April 2002)[55] was France's oldest living person for about a year, following the death of Marie Brémont on 6 June 2001 until her own death at age 113 years 190 days.[56] She was also the oldest living person in Europe and 4th oldest in the world.[57]

Haye lived in the town of Mortagne-au-Perche in Orne, Normandy, western France, since she was 19 years old. She worked as a babysitter and teacher until her three daughters grew up and left home. She then devoted herself to literature, publishing poems under the pseudonym Anne Moranget.[29] In 2000, following a femoral fracture, she became a full-time wheelchair user, and went to live in the Mortagne-au-Perche retirement home for the last two years of her life. She died in her sleep.[55][56]

Camille Loiseau[edit]

Camille Blanche Loiseau Chadal (13 February 1892 – 12 August 2006) was the oldest living person in France until her death aged 114 years 180 days. Loiseau was ranked fifth in the world in the 2007 edition of Guinness World Records. She achieved the position of France's oldest woman, known in France as the Doyenne de France, on the death of Anne Primout on 26 March 2005, who also died at age 114.

She was the oldest verified person living in Europe since the death of 114-year-old Italian Virginia Dighero 28 December 2005, and became the fifth oldest verified living person in the world on the death of 115-year-old American Susie Gibson on 16 February 2006. Madame Loiseau was succeeded as doyenne of France by Marie-Simone Capony, aged 112 at the time, though the title was first given to fellow 112-year-old Marie Mornet Robin who lived in the western town of Poitou-Charentes, but was three weeks younger than Capony.[58] She and Japanese supercentenarian Toyo Endo were recognised by Guinness World Records as the oldest people to share a birthday.[59]

She was born in Paris and did not move out of the city until her hospitalization in 1998 due to a fall. She was the youngest of nine children, four boys and five girls. On 13 August 1910 she married René Frédéric Chadal, although their marriage lasted only 15 days.[60] As is common in France, Camille Loiseau chose not to use her husband's last name.

She celebrated her last birthday "with a little champagne". She died in the Hôpital Paul-Brousse in Villejuif.[60]

Marie-Simone Capony[edit]

Marie-Simone Capony (14 March 1894 – 15 September 2007) was, at age 113, the oldest living person in France.[61] She became the French doyenne following the death of 114-year-old Camille Loiseau in August 2006. At the time of her death, aged 113 years and 185 days, due to heart failure, she ranked as the fifth-oldest person in the world. Capony was born in Charlieu (Loire), and lived in a retirement facility in Cannes. She never married (her fiancé was killed in action at the beginning of the First World War in 1914).[61] Capony had not been able to walk since she turned 100, after having an operation in order to fix a broken thighbone, but she still remained in fairly good health considering her very advanced age.[61]

Mathilde Aussant[edit]

Mathilde Aussant (27 February 1898 – 23 July 2011) was a French supercentenarian who was at the time of her death believed to be the oldest verified person in France.[2][62] However, the subsequent verification of Marie-Isabelle Diaz to have been born on 22 February 1898 meant that Aussant was in fact the second oldest.

She was born in Donges, France,[63] the fifth of eleven children born to François Gaudet and Hélène Halgand. Following the death of her mother, she left Donges for Paris in 1923. She worked as a housekeeper and babysitter. She married a railroad worker from Gare Saint-Lazare, who died in 1936. In 1946, she married another railroad worker, René Aussant, who died in 1961. Their only daughter died in 2007, leaving Aussant without any immediate family.[64] In 1999, she moved to a retirement home. In 2008 she was awarded the Medal of the city of Donges. She died at a hospital in Vendôme on Saturday, 23 July 2011.

Marie-Isabelle Diaz [edit]

Marie-Isabelle Diaz (née Rodriguez, 22 February 1898 – 29 October 2011) was posthumously recognized as the oldest living French person from the death of Eugénie Blanchard on 4 November 2010, until her own death a year later.[28] She is also the oldest person ever from the French possession of Réunion. She was born in Sidi Bel Abbès, Algeria, then an overseas territory of France. She was married and had three children. Her husband died at 60. After its independence she left the country in 1962. She then settled in Spain with one of her sons. Then she lived a few years in Rouen. She lived in Réunion from 1983 until her death. She was 113 years 249 days old when she died.[28][65]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ a b Disputed: a November 2018 study advanced the hypothesis that Calment's daughter Yvonne usurped her identity in 1934. Yvonne was born on 19 January 1898, which would have made her 99 years old upon her death in 1997.[4]

  3. ^ Rabenda was born in one of the Polish villages called Piekary, then part of the Russian Empire.
