The oldest person in the world - and last living person born in the 1800s - has reportedly died in Italy.

The post An alleged world's oldest person dies in Italy appeared first on Vanguard News. "And cookies. But I do not eat much because I have no teeth", she told her interviewer.

Emma Martina Luigia Morano was born on 29 November 1899 in Civiasco, Vercelli, Piedmont, Italy. It was a habit she picked up at the age of 20, when a doctor advised her that consuming these three daily eggs would help treat her anemia.

Morano became the world's oldest living person a year ago after American Susannah Mushatt Jones died at age 116.

During her life, Morano had witnessed three Italian kings and lived through a dozen different presidents.

She was married in 1926, but the marriage was not a happy one, and she drove her husband out of the house in 1938.

"'Either you agree to marry me or I will kill you'", Ms Morano said, recalling his proposal.

Emma Morano thrived on an unorthodox, unbalanced diet. From 2015 she remained bedridden and needed a nurse assistant for 24 hours. Devastatingly, she never saw him again and assumed he had died. Morano was unable to attend as she had been bed-bound for four years at the time, instead receiving visitors at her home.

Morano was the oldest of eight siblings, all of whom she has outlived.

Emma Morano, who was named the oldest person in the world, has died at the age of 117. She consumes raw eggs daily along with small amounts of meat and pasta but drinks only milk for dinner.

In an interview with AFP news agency past year, Morano put her longevity down to her diet.

BBC News reports that according to the US-based Gerontology Research Group (GRG), the world's oldest registered human is now Jamaica's Violet Brown, who was born on 10 March 1900.
