Adolf Hitler had a micro-penis, historians have claimed.
The former leader of the Third Reich has long been the subject of a playground rhyme about a missing testicle, but researchers now say he had a “tiny” penis too.
In their book, Hitler’s Last Day: Minute by Minute, historians Jonathan Mayo and Emma Craigie say they have found medical records which reveal Hitler had a rare condition called hypospadias.
They wrote: “Hitler himself is believed to have had two forms of genital abnormality: an undescended testicle and a rare condition called penile hypospadias in which the urethra opens on the under side of the penis.”
Sufferers of hypospadias have their urethra, which expels urine, on the shaft or the base of the penis instead of at the tip.
At the end of last year, a German historian, Professor Peter Fleischmann of Erlangen-Nuremberg University, claimed Hitler had an undescended testicle after studying newly discovered medical records.
It is believed Hitler’s personal doctor noted his condition and prescribed him hormones, amphetamines and cocaine to boost his sex drive with his wife Eva Braun.
