How Old Are Leviathan's Children?

A fragment of a bomb lance from the late 1800s was found embedded in the neck of a bowhead whale hunted near Alaska. This gives the creature an estimated age of 115 to 130, and some say they can live to 200. I wonder how many times this one contested with whalers over the years.
