The oldest person in the world, a 116-year-old French woman, has died, her family confirmed to AFP on Saturday.

Born on August 4, 1902, in the town of Saint-Maur-des-Fosses, she was the last known person born in the 19th century.

Her death was announced by her great-nephew, Francois D’Aubert.

“She died overnight, peacefully,” he told AFP.

The oldest person in the world was a supercentenarian, meaning she lived to or beyond the age of 110.

There are only around 50 supercentenarians alive today.

The title of oldest person in the world now goes to a 115-year-old Japanese woman, Nabi Tajima.

The world’s oldest person has died at age 116, leaving behind a long and storied life.

Born in 1902, she was the last living person born in the 19th century.

Over her 116 years, she witnessed two world wars, the invention of the automobile, the rise of the internet, and humans landing on the moon.

In her final years, she was celebrated as a national treasure in her native France.

supercentenarians are an increasingly rare phenomenon. In the early 1900s, there were an estimated 35,000 supercentenarians alive.

Today, there are only around 50.

The majority of supercentenarians are women.

This is likely because women have a longer life expectancy than men.

The oldest person ever to have lived was a French woman named Jeanne Calment.

She died in 1997 at the age of 122.

The record for the oldest man ever is held by Jiroemon Kimura, a Japanese man who died in 2013 at the age of 116.
