Today we’ll be discussing a woman who set the world on fire several years ago by having a tremendous body. Her entrance into the world was unexpected, shocking the world when she came in with four legs and two private parts.
Her date of birth was May 12, 1868, and her date of death was May 6, 1928. Josephine Myrtle Corbin had the intriguing name of Myrtle. She was an American sideshow performer who was born with dipygus. She had two pelvises: one in front and one in back, side by side from the waist down.
Her outer leg was paired with an inner leg of the same size. She was said to have the strength to drive but not the durability to walk.
While the condition was still developing, Dr. Lewis Whaley, the doctor who discovered her condition, discovered that her reproductive organs had mirror image duplications on the outside as well as the inside.
