This list comprises verified Danish supercentenarians (people from Denmark who have attained the age of at least 110 years), according to the Gerontology Research Group (GRG).[1] The GRG reports that there have been two validated supercentenarians from Denmark.[2] According to the GRG, the oldest person ever from Denmark was Anne Matthiesen, who died in 1996, aged 111 years, 114 days, but Danish born Christian Mortensen, aged 115 years, 252 days, died in the United States in 1998.
As of 25 June 2017, the GRG reports no validated living supercentenarians in Denmark, but that the oldest person living, since the death of Signe Hoejer on 18 March 2016, is Ellen Brandenborg, aged 111 years, 169 days.
