    The World's Unofficial Oldest Woman Enjoys Eating Chocolate And Sleeping

    Leandra Becerra Lumreras is 127 years old, and was a freedom fighter in the Mexican Revolution.

    Say hello to 127-year-old Leandra Becerra Lumbreras – the unofficial oldest person on the planet!

    According to the New York Post, she was also something of a badass. She was a member of the “Adelitas", a group of women who fought in the Mexican Revolution.

    Lumbreras's 43-year-old granddaughter Miriam Alvear told the Mexican El Horizonte newspaper: "She is entirely lucid. She blows your mind with her stories from the revolution. She was always a woman who fought."

    Lumbreras' family has said that she enjoys eating chocolate, beans, tortillas, as well as sleeping for up to three days at a time.

    Lumbreras had five children – the oldest of which passed away at the age of 90 in 2013 – but never married.

    Interestingly, Patrick, the world's oldest wombat, has also remained single.
