Manuela Fernández-Fojaco is a Spanish supercentenarian, born on 18 June 1895 and who died as the third-oldest Spanish to have ever lived on 6 January 2009, aged 113 years, 202 days. She held the title of oldest living European for 4 days between 2 and 6 January 2009, from the death of Maria de Jesus, 115, to her own. She, however, held the title of oldest living Spanish for 3 years and 218 days, following the death of Isacia Díez in 2005. Fernández-Fojaco died just a week short of equalling the age of Carmen Figueiroa Freiria, the oldest Spanish female ever. (The oldest Spanish ever is a male, Joan Riudavets-Moll, 114). Born in Llamas, in Aller, Asturias, Fernández-Fojaco was, as the fifth-oldest living person, about a year younger than Gertrude Baines, of the U.S., who was the oldest living person at that time. Following her death, Lucia Lauria became the oldest living European [Eugénie Blanchard, the current world's oldest person, technically is, but she lives in Saint Barthélemy, an overseas collectivity of France] In addition, after Fernández-Fojaco's death, Maria de la O-Soria became the new oldest living Spanish. Fernández-Fojaco is the 115th oldest person to have ever lived.
