The average height of men is 175.4 centimeters. We can safely say that this is an absolute “middle peasant”. Not high and not low. Therefore, we consider tall people to be guys with a height of 180 - 185. And those who are taller are completely giants. But even people with a height of two meters will be simply midgets in comparison with these giants. Let's take a look at the tallest people in history.
Height: 228 centimeters
Ella Williams, known in 19th and 20th century show business as Madame Aboma, was one of the tallest girls of the time. For many years she took part in various entertainment shows and the circus.
Height: 249 centimeters
Jinnat Ali was the tallest man from Bangladesh.

The Finnish giant weighed more than 170 kilograms. Even after he turned 40, he still continued to grow.
Height: 255 centimeters
Treintje was only 17 years old at the time of his death. It is quite possible that it could become even higher. However, the life of the young girl was cut short by an insidious disease, which in those days (1616-1633) they did not yet know how to treat.
Height: 256 centimeters
It is reported that at the age of 14 his height was already 194 centimeters. Koch's femurs were the longest ever measured at 76 centimeters, and his hands were 37.6 centimeters long.

Franz Winkelmeier was born an ordinary child, but after suffering an infectious disease at the age of 14, he began to grow rapidly, reaching an incredibly tall height.
John F. Carroll
Height: 264 centimeters
John William "Bud" Rogan
Height: 267 centimeters
Rogan began to grow very quickly at the age of 13, which led to the appearance of ankolosis (stiffness of the joints). As a result, he had to move on crutches, and then on a special cart, which he designed for himself. Curiously, the giant continued to grow until his death.
Height: 272 centimeters
Robert was born an ordinary boy. However, already at the age of 4 years he began to grow very quickly. At the age of 8, the guy was already significantly taller than his father, and his body weight reached 90 kilograms. Robert's peculiarity was due to a rare disease. A tumor developed in the boy’s pituitary gland, which caused abnormal growth. Robert was also diagnosed with acromegaly, a pathology in which a person’s skull bones expand.
Height: 285 centimeters
Fyodor Makhnov is considered the tallest man ever known in history. However, his exact height and weight are not confirmed. Some historical sources are confident in the veracity of these characteristics. Others claim that the giant’s height did not exceed 240 centimeters. Perhaps the exaggeration was explained by the fact that he wore a huge Cossack fur hat and high boots, which added to his height.
