Benito Mussolini Height

Inactivity is death.

~ Benito Mussolini

There was Hitler in Germany and then there was Mussolini in Italy -- a big dictator of the world war 2 era -- and like all dictators Benito Mussolini was short. We are just saying this for effect, actually like Hitler and Stalin (5'6" or 167.6 cm), Mussolini was more or less average tall for his time and country.

Benito Mussolini's height is listed as either 5'6" or 5'7" on most of the websites on the internet. Our own opinion is that he looked close to the 5'6" range -- a couple inches shorter than his pal Hitler who was 5'8½".

But there is no need for guesswork as there is official documentation available on his height. In Benito Mussolini's arrest sheet his height is listed as 169.2 cm (5 ft 6.6 in). Such a precise listing could be anything but incorrect.

The height of Benito Mussolini was

5'6½" or 169 cm

There are many twisted people in the world -- Mussolini was one of them. Here are a few of his quotes which prove this:

Benito Mussolini on not trusting others.

It's good to trust others but, not doing so is much better.

Benito Mussolini on what war is to men.

War is to a man what maternity is to a woman. From a philosophical and doctrinal viewpoint, I do not believe in perpetual peace.

Benito Mussolini on the state.

All within the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state.

Benito Mussolini on liberty.

The truth is that men are tired of liberty.

Benito Mussolini on democracy.

Democracy is beautiful in theory; in practice, it is a fallacy.

Benito Mussolini on making others fight.

It is humiliating to remain with our hands folded while others write history. It matters little who wins. To make a people great it is necessary to send them to battle even if you have to kick them in the pants. That is what I shall do.
