Rotterdam Giant

 

Rigardus Rijnhout (Rotterdam, 21 April 1922 - Leiden, 13 April 1959) was because of his height of 229.87 cm known as the giant of Rotterdam. He was the second tallest Dutchman ever, after Albert Jan Kramer. His weight was 230 kilo's and his shosize was 62 (European size). He suffered from acromegalie.

Rijnhout died at 36 years of age because of a pituitary tumor, which was also the cause of his enormous size. 4 years prior to his death he became disabled after an accident. Although famous during his lifetime he was often bullied.
