There isn’t a shortage of ancient texts and general evidence that supports the notion that giants existed on Earth. However, you’ve probably never encountered a story like this. Meet Kap Dwa, a two-headed, 3.5-meter-tall giant from Patagonia.
The story begins in 1673 when this massive two-headed giant was captured by Spanish sailors where he remained captive until he was killed while trying to escape from his captivators, as the Spaniards killed him with a pike through the chest.
“There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.” -Genesis 6:4
Kap-Dwa may have been real, and our planet is anything but uncommon when it comes to people with extraordinary height. The tallest man on Earth, when last measured on 27 June 1940, was found to be 2.72 m. The issue with the ‘two heads’ can also be explained as ‘conjoined twins’ are not that uncommon.
There is another virtually identical mummified Patagon (or was it the same one?), "King Mac-A-Dula", he was " nine feet high, had two heads, was as strong as an elephant, and a great warrior who led his tribe to many victories, and that after one great battle he disappeared and was never seen or heard of again".
His mummy (a natural process acording to the pamphlet we are quoting) "was found in a cave in Patagonia. South America, by a party of English miners, while prospecting for gold". Apparently it was exhibited by the Nelson Supply House at South Boston, Massachusetts, U.S. It was under lease from England, so perhaps it was the same being.
It seems however that Mr. Nelson made his fake mummies out of papier-maché and sold them to anyone willing to display them.
Two-headed creatures have existed as "curios" since time immemorial. See This image of some strange creatures, among which is a two-headed dwarf.
Patagonia also has myths about a condor with two heads and an enigmatic two-headed guanaco, which was a bad omen, a "forerunner of sickness"
