Arthur James Caley or Routh Goshen (May 5, 1837 - February 12, 1889) was most commonly known as Colonel Routh Goshen, but this was a stage name that was created by Phineas Taylor Barnum. He was billed as the tallest man in the world at 7&nbsp;ft, 11&nbsp;inches (2.41 m) and 620 pounds (280&nbsp;kg) but was most likely no more than 7&nbsp;ft, 5&nbsp;inches (2.26 m) and 400 pounds (180&nbsp;kg). While his birth name and date of birth were kept a secret, a letter that surfaced indicated that his birth name was Arthur James Caley and he was born on the Isle of Man in 1827. Other sources said he was born in Jerusalem on May 5, 1837. His true origins are still obscured by the many apocryphal biographies that were created to publicize him.
