It's canon all the official heights given to a select few Hetalia characters were chosen based on a study Himaruya found of average heights (by gender) in various countries.  Because I'm bored, I went ahead and decided to make a list of the heights the characters should be based on a study just like the one he looked at.  But because they seem to be slightly different (or it was updated), I'm keeping the official heights given to some characters and adding the probable heights to the ones not given a height.  So let's get started.

NOTICE: The height in meters was provided by the study along with the feet and inches.  For the official heights, the feet, inches, and centimeters are also official.  ALSO, ANY CHARACTERS NOT ON THIS LIST HAD A NON APPLICABLE HEIGHT.  I WILL NOT SEARCH AROUND TO FIND THEM FOR YOU.  IF YOU WANT TO KNOW, FIND OUT YOURSELF.

America: 5'9.6" (177 cm) - official
Australia: 5'8.75" (1.748 m)
Austria: 5'10.5" (1.792 m)
Belarus: 5'3" est. (over 160 cm) - official

It was confirmed, yeah. While Seborga's height isn't stated canonly, it is proven in artwork of the three brothers as well as him and Veneziano on their own that he's taller than Veneziano. Therefore, Seborga's taller than Romano, as well. Since Romano's height is not canonly stated, either, it's hard to judge just /how/ much taller Veneziano, but it's assumed to be anywhere from 1.27-3.81 (1/2-1 1/2 inches) difference. However, chart IS from 2013 and hasn't seemed to be edited recently so it's no big deal.

Hm... Sorry, but... How can England be only 2 cm shorter than America? And how can he have the same height as France (isn't France taller?)?

Fanart does marvelous things. Believe me.

And yep, those are the official heights, so now you understand why I cringe whenever some fanfiction writer states that England is as short as an oompa-loompa.

I'm now pretty sure that not so many people have read this.

Nah, in the anime, England is indeed a bit shorter than France and almost half a head shorter than America. It's the fanart that ups his height a bit : )

I'm starting to think that both anime and Himaruya himself didn't pay much attention to the height factor. When I read about the heights of the characters, I started to analize both the anime and the comic strips. And the height actually differs. There are some episodes where England is actually taller than France, and then France is taller than England... it's confusing. Same goes for the comic strips.

The new season actually made England look shorter... and younger. 

I don't know about the other characters, though, both England and France are my favorite and it somewhat irks me when the headcanons of some fans interfere with the canon. But well, I don't have a problem if fanartists are using that just as an artistic thing. I myself love some height difference in the pairings, so...

When I saw the Nordic height....

I was like "WHAAAAAAAAT? Noraway and Denmark taller than Sweden?"

For Finland and Sweden ok
but for the others....

I think that Ice is...like 175cm and for Denmark around 180
Norway is between..

Yeah, Norway is approximately five to ten cm taller than Iceland, Sweden is maybe an inch (2.54cm) taller than demark though..

Sweden is tall as Russia is

Officially
Finland is 170 centimeter (5ft7in)

Sweden taller than Finland over 12 cm so 182 centimeter like Russia (5ft12in)

Denmark is tall as Germany (I think) so around 180 centimeter (5ft11in)


So dat left Ice and Noru-kun
Finland is the smallest so Ice must be around 172 cm (5ft8in)

Noru-kun is 178cm (5ft10in)



I have a question though

Why Americans don't use international unity nor clock counting :?

I find that weird, too, that he canonically states that Russia is 5'11" while portraying him as being exceptionally tall compared to other characters. I think Himaruya underestimated the value of height...hahah. Who knows...

Romano is actually taller. He's the older brother, plus you can see the slight height difference between him and Italy.

It's canon in a recent strip for World Stars that Italy is slightly taller than Romano. I'm not exactly one that would try and spread false facts :l just because one is older does not make them automatically taller.
