Giant from Russia: Tallest man ever

In the beginning of the twentieth century there was a real giant living in Russia.

He was 9.3 feet (2.85 m) tall! World leaders from all over the world invited him to have a look. He has visited Theodor Roosevelt and Pope of Rome, as well as many others in his world wide journey.

It's a pitty not much of good quality photos have been left since then.

    Actually he was only 7.1 feet (2.39 m) tall. But that’s still impressive!

    More about Machnow (you see the name on the postcards):

    It’s a photoshop – I can tell from the pixels.

    Did you know Stalin was 1.56 ? That’s why he was usually photographed seated or from a frog’s perspective.

  7. Alpha-Toxic says:

    slight correction:
    2.39m is 7 feet 10 inches, not 7.1 feet

    btw, looking at him compared to the furniture around him, he is tall, but he really can’t be 2.85. That would not fit in most rooms.

    LAst foto shows Russian invention of “World’s Tallest Man Hat Installation Machine”. Nation leaders was worried about how to make Fedor wear on a hat. Top Scientists labor in secret many year to invent this device so that Fedor could go into public with a hat. To this day no nation has machine equal to this. It is great acheivement. But no one has yet invented “World’s Tallest Man Hat Removal Machine”

      They did invent such a machine… however, unfortunately:

      1) He died before it was finished

      2) It only removes hats from Russian heads so it is kept in Lenins Tomb until the day another Russian becomes the tallest man in the world.

    Best you should change the page subject title English Russia » Fedor the Giant to more specific for your blog post you create. I liked the the writing all the same.

    This is a fake post, he was really only about 7′ tall. I dont know where this man got his info from, but the real tallest man was Robert Wadlow (8′ 11′) not fedor. 9′ 3″ ??? really? how do you get that form 7’0″

  18. Craig is correct. The tallest man who ever lived was Robert Wadlow at 8’11”. Feodor Machnow was 7’10” (239 cm) at his peak. You can find the medical articles to prove this here: http://www.thetallestman.com/feodormachnow.htm
