Stephan Bibrowsky was born in Poland in 1890 to normal parents. He suffered from hypertrichosia.Six-inch-long hair covered his body. He was discovered by a German man named Meyer when he was four years old and became famous throughout Europe where he gained the nickname of Lionel the Lion-Faced Man. When her mother was pregnant, said the story, she saw her husband lacerated by a lion. He then traveled to America where he was a featured attraction with Barnum and Bailey. He died in 1932 in Italy. Far from being exhibited as a beast, he wore often the best clothes to show that under his hairs he was a litterate and enjoyable person that spoke five languages.
