Christian Mortensen (August 16, 1882 – April 25, 1998) was a Danish-born American male supercentenarian, who is the second longest-lived validated man in history. (Although in 1998, when he died, Shigechiyo Izumi's age still not debunked.) He is also the oldest man ever who was born in Europe.

His final age was 115 years and 252 days. It was the highest male human lifespan record until 27 December 2012, when Jiroemon Kimura of Japan surpass his final age.

He was the world's oldest validated living man between January 20, 1994 and April 25, 1998.

The Post-Cresent, 5 August 1997.

Newspapers.com recently added 27 additional newspapers into their catalog, including some from California, so I wonder if this article was only just indexed.

I don't know if this would interest anyone here, but apparently according to this document (WWI draft registration card for him), his wife's name was Mamie:

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:K685-TD1

I don't know if this information was publicly known before, but Yeah, this should be the WWI draft registration card for the same man who died in 1998 due to the name, birth place, and birth date fully matching here.

Mortensen didn't have a very happy (or a very long, for that matter!) marriage and thus didn't want to talk about it later on in his life.

Mathew Beard's age is now debunked by the LongeviQuest, so Christian Mortensen is the first man who reaches the age of 114 and 115,  and also the second man to reach the age of 113. His feats were amazing!

He died on just 9 days after passing of Marie-Louise Meilleur and died on the day Fusa Tatsumi's 91st birthday. After Delphia Welford's validation, he was the 7th oldest validated person ever at the time of his death.

As implied by Record116 above, he smashed the record for the worlds oldest man, adding over two years to it.

And then no one got near him for nearly a decade until Emiliano reached 115.
