    13 world leaders ranked by how tall they are

    Abstract:From the tall Xi Jinping to the short Michael D Higgins to the mysterious height of Kim Jong-un, the height of world leaders varies wildly.

      World leaders vary hugely in height, though many try and project the image of being taller than they are.

      We often see them photographed together, allowing us to see just how much their heights can vary.

      Here's how they stack up, from the 6 feet 6 inch (198 centimeter) president of Serbia to the 5 feet 3 three (160 centimeter) tall president of Ireland.

      Studies have shown that voters lean towards taller politicians, viewing them as better suited to leadership.

      But the world's leaders fill the whole spectrum, with some topping six feet, and others closer to five feet tall.

      World leaders don't always publicize their height, which means that estimating often comes down to comparing them as they stand beside each other, or with other celebrities whose heights are public.

      Some world leaders even go out of their way to seem taller than they are, so their real height can be something of a surprise.
