Heinrich Karl Friedrich Wedeking (10 October 1862 – 5 May 1973) was the first German supercentenarian. He was born in Blomberg and died in Dortmund.[1]

He was the world's oldest validated man from the death of John Mosely Turner on 21 March, 1968 until his own death (however, data from the 1968-1973 period remains woefully incomplete and this may reflect a "placeholder" value at the start of his "title reign" at age only 105 in 1968).
