This question is ambiguous. It implies that the answerer is aware of the exact heights of each of the billions of human beings that lived before the 20th century, and that none of them ever surpassed the height of eight foot eleven! Marco Polo actually recorded meeting giants in South America. You don't suppose it could be possible that they were very tall as well?
