Tanzilya Bisembeyeva, who lived in Russia, died at the age of 123
A woman who is considered by Russia to be the oldest in the world to die in 123 was announced today.
Tanzilya Bisembeyeva, born two months before the coronation of the tragic last tsar Nicholas II, had lived for three centuries, it is claimed.
"She died peacefully, buried in the family cemetery," said Nurgali Baitemirov, the senior official in her district in the Astrakhan region, Russian government newspaper Rossiyskaya Gazeta reported.
& # 39; The entire village saw her leave on her last trip. & # 39;
Her claim to be the oldest woman in her country was recognized by the Russian Book of Records and apparently the Russian government.
If that were true, it meant she was the oldest person on the planet.
The secret of her long life, the survival of the revolutions of the Russian revolution, when she was already 21, and the Soviet collapse, as well as the tyranny of Stalin, was & # 39; optimism and hard work & # 39; – together with drinking kefir or fermented milk.
Locals say she was over 100 before she went to a doctor.
Her family said her lifespan was due to her & # 39; never sitting still & # 39; and a & # 39; healthy lifestyle & # 39 ;.
She claimed to be born in 1896, just two months before the coronation of the tragic last tsar Nicholas II. Tanzilya is thought to have lived through the reign of Nicholas II, Kerensky, Lenin, Stalin, Khrushchev, Brezhnev, Andropov, Chernenko, Gorbachev, Yeltsin, Putin, and Medvedev
She did not smoke and only ate natural foods, and had endured decades of work for which Tanzilya received a labor prize.
& # 39; She worked in the field all the time & # 39 ;, one account said.
& # 39; My mother has seen a lot during her long life. She has lived from Rasputin to Putin, & # 39; said Shintas, her son, now in his & # 39; 70, a few years ago.
Grigory Rasputin was the & # 39; crazy monk & # 39; who controlled the Russian royal family, demonstrably accelerated the demise of the Romanov dynasty, while President Vladimir Putin was one of the twelve Kremlin rulers during her lifetime.

Officials say her birth certificate and internal Russian passport indicated her old age, but skeptics point out that this made her 53 when she first gave birth, and 59 when her third son was born.
In total, Tanzilya had three sons, ten grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, reports say.
An ethnic Kazakh and a Muslim, she was born the oldest of eight and raised her brothers and sisters, married after the revolution when she worked as a laborer on a Soviet collective farm.
She had three sons, ten grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren in her life and two great-grandchildren throughout her life.
She had no children before her first husband went missing during the Second World War.
Yet she found happiness during the last decade of Stalin in power, says her family, after marrying Musagali Bisembeev, her oldest 16 years old.
Son Shintas said: & # 39; My mother met my father in 1946.
& # 39; She was 50 and he was over 60, but he was a strong man, he worked on the collective farm and did as much as two men would.
& # 39; After the war, my parents lived in the shelter of a soldier and their first son died in his baby days.

& # 39; They were so poor that they could not afford a good house, and this is probably why their son died. You could not heat such a room well.
& # 39; But later they had three sons, think about it.
& # 39; I was born when my mother was 53 and the youngest brother was born when she was 59. It still sounds incredible.
The woman's family said her lifespan was due to her & # 39; never sitting still & # 39; and a & # 39; healthy lifestyle & # 39;
& # 39; Life wasn't easy and they were often hungry at the time.
& # 39; I still remember being five years old and already helping my parents with the hay. & # 39;
Although she is the oldest citizen of Russia, she barely spoke the language and preferred her mother tongue, Kazakh.
Neighbor Valentina Akbasova said three years ago: & she is so gentle. She will always hug and kiss you and ask how you feel, she was always eager to help. & # 39;
Tanzilya is thought to have lived through the reign of Nicholas II, Kerensky, Lenin, Stalin, Khrushchev, Brezhnev, Andropov, Chernenko, Gorbachev, Yeltsin, Putin, and Medvedev (again followed by Putin in 2012).

Two other Russian women Koku Istambulova, reportedly 129, and Nanu Shaova, listed as 128, both died earlier this year.
A problem with recognizing such claims is the lack of original documentation of their births, partly due to the turmoil of revolution and war in Russia.
The oldest documented human lifetime is Jeanne Calment, from France, who lived 122 years, 164 days and died in 1997.
As a girl she met Vincent van Gogh.
In March of this year, Kane Tanaka from Fukuoka, Japan, was officially confirmed as the oldest verified living person at 116 years.
