Estelle Dupont was 100 years old in 2000. She was born near Bordeaux in France, where her father was a rich businessman. Today she lives in an old people's home in Paris. "My father was a rich businessman and we lived in a chateau about ten kilometres from Bordeaux. Our home was very comfortable. The house was very big - there were twenty bedrooms, beautiful gardens and lots of servants. But my childhood wasn't happy. I was an only child, and my mother was always ill. She died when I was eight, and my father died two years later when I was ten. It was a very bad time. I was a very unhappy child, but life is better now."
