in 1567 the man with the worlds longest beard

In 1567, the man with the world’s longest beard, Hans Steininger, died from tripping over it when running away from a fire.

Or did he die from tripping over his beard and breaking his neck?  Regardless, he dead.  Do not confuse Steininger with Hans Langseth, who also had a world record length beard.
