    Do you have a link? But no, I've never heard of anyone live beyond like 130, let alone 197, so it is almost certainly untrue.

    Yes, he died after being burnt to death by a dragon in Atlantis.

    Inductively there is actually no sound reason why a man could not exist to such an age; since we have only observed a finite amount of people and medical issues it is certainly possible. Likely? No.
