Always shotfrom a low angle & with his nose in the air, Mussolini's portraits make him look like giant. In these photos, he's less than imressive. How tall was he?

In the last photo, Mussolini is pictured with a number of senior Hungarian officers. The tall officer next to the Duce is Colonel-General Ferenc Szombathelyi, Chief of the Hungarian General Staff, and second right is the later Colonel-General János Vörös, who took over from Szombathelyi as CGS in April 1944.

According to the medical examination made by the Military District of Forlì when Mussolini was drafted into the Army, Mussolini was 1.69 m (about 5' 6.5") tall (source: http://www.larchivio.org/xoom/matricolare.htm). The average height of Italian males born in 1883 was about 1.64 m (5' 4.5") (source: page 20 of La statura degli italiani nati dal 1854 al 1890).

In the last photo posted in this thread, the fourth man from the right is Gen. (or Marshal: I don't know the date of the photo and I am unable to see the rank on the cap or the sleeves) Ugo Cavallero, Chief of General Staff.
