Alimihan Seyiti (born June 25, 1886?) is a supercentenarian claimant. She lives in the Chinese city of Kashgar, near the border with Kyrgyzstan.[1] On August 15, 2013, the Xinjiang Daily reported that she was born on June 25, 1886, which, if true, would make her the oldest person in recorded history.[2] Chinese birth records before and into the 20th century are generally unreliable, however, so substantiating her claim has been difficult.[1]

Longevity[edit | hide all | hide | edit source]

Seyiti attributes longevity to dressing herself up. She said that she never been to hospital. She still does chores like feeding chickens.[1]
