Camille Blanche Loiseau Chadal (13 February 1892 – 12 August 2006) was the oldest living person in France for
more than a year, until her death at age 114. Loiseau was ranked fifth in the world in the 2007 edition of Guinness World Records. She achieved the position of France's oldest woman, known in France as the Doyenne de France, on the death of Anne Primout on 26 March 2005, who also died at age 114.
She was the oldest verified person living in Europe since the 28 December 2005 death of again 114-year-old Italian Virginia Dighero, and became the fifth oldest verified living person in the world on the death of 115-year-old American Susie Gibson on 16 February 2006. Madame Loiseau was succeeded as doyenne of France by Marie-Simone Capony, aged 112 at the time, though the title was first given to fellow 112-year-old Marie Mornet Robin who lived in the western town of Poitou-Charentes, but was three weeks younger than Capony.
