Mills Darden was an American who became famous as one of the largest men ever in human history. His enormous size both in terms of his body height and weight made him one of the biggest humans to have ever lived. He was officially confirmed to have stood at an incredible height of 7 feet 6 inches tall and weighed around 1,000 to 1,100 pounds, and possibly even more. His recorded approximate weight of 1,020 pounds would have given him a body mass index of 88.2. If the reported figures are correct, Darden was 30 percent taller than and about six times as heavy as the average American male of the 21st century. Mills Darden was born on October 7, 1799, near Rich Square, North Carolina, United States, to John and Mary Darden. He was married at least once and had several children. His wife Mary, who died in 1837 aged about 40, was 4 feet 11 inches tall and weighed 98 pounds, and the tallest of their sons reached 5 feet 11 inches. He died on January 23, 1857. He was buried in Lexington, Tennessee. His grave, and his wife's, have been restored by the local Development Authority. No known verifiable photo remains of him.
