10 Most Evil Men in the History

Probably we all would have gotten bored about reading who is famous and who isn't these days, however, there is one thing which would have clicked the minds of very few people. Why not consider, looking briefly into the evil world and their minds. It sounds interesting doesn't it. Let us see why our top ten are famous for their evilness.

10. Attila The Hun

Attila The Hun considered as one of the history`s greatest villains was the emperor of the Huns Empire in the 5th century which stretched from the Ural River to the Rhine River and from the Danube River to the Baltic Sea. As it's said, Attila the Hun was made to life by the Holo-Shed on Nimbus after which he along with his friends caused a lot of destruction and mayhem.  In addition, he had an evil version of Amy`s favorite pony named as Spirit. His barbaric acts were uncountable and one of his quotes was very famous that is "Pay up or we`ll eat you", while destroying everything that came in his path with a fierce attitude during the barbaric invasions.

9. King John

King John was the king of England and during his reign, England lost duchy of Normandy. People until now have regarded him as "distasteful, even dangerous personality traits", which includes acts of pettiness, spitefulness and cruelty. A couple notable facts of his time were his treacherous behavior to his brother and forming of the legend of Robin Hood. History states that King John gave the head of ST Philip to reading Abbey, where pilgrims visited then. In addition, due to his poor law and order and high taxes, the Barons rebelled against him. King John broke all his promises after which the Barons asked the King of France to overthrow him which lead to King John's terrible death.

8. Gaius Caesar


Gaius Caesar was the real name of Caligula famous as "The Evil Emperor who proclaimed himself a god". The start of his reign was very much progressive in nature with economy boosting but after his ill self, he sustained injuries to his mind. This injury made him crush everyone with his cruelty. He was immensely brutal in nature that he fed the lions with common criminals and allowed the ringleaders of the rebellions to be sent in arenas with their tongues cut, who died fighting. He made the wealthiest citizens his priests, whilst the Romans worshiped him. The last massacre under him was to put to death the richest people and confiscating their property at Gaul.

7. Adolf Hitler

Adolf was a dictator who has marked the world history for the world leaders until now. Also named as "Fuhrer", he was appointed Chancellor of Germany in 1933. When the Second World War ended, his policies of racial subjugation and geographical conquest had brought death and mayhem to tens of millions of people, known as the Holocaust. In 1945, when the soviet troops spotted him near them, he committed suicide by shooting himself while having a cyanide capsule. The massacre, which he created, has changed the world map, as we know it.

6.Idi Amin Dada

Idi Amin Dada was a military leader and President of Uganda. Initially, he was in the British colonial regiment and then took power in the military sector, later ending up as the Field Marshal and Head of State. Amin's rule was notoriously famous for human rights abuse, along ethnic persecution, killings, corruption and political repression and gross economic mismanagement. Numerous people were killed under his regime, with an estimation of death by international observers and human rights groups to range from 100,000 to 500,000.






5.Ivan

Ivan was born to Vasili and after death of his father; he became the Grand Prince of Moscow. At that time, he was just 8 years old. Ivan was one of those violent rulers who became more brutal in his later years such that he killed his own son during a fit of rage. The translated meaning of his name is "Terrible" whereas his name originally meant "great" or "mighty". His tenure was embarked as being merciful even though he had a whole town of people killed. In addition, he beat  his pregnant daughter, which led to a miscarriage.               

4.Nero

The tenure of Nero was tranquilized by the worst crimes, the biggest of all was the Burning of Rome. In AD 64, a fire broke out in Rome and it lasted for six days which engulfed all the major parts of the city. As history revealed, Nero was the one who ordered this event to happen and that while Rome was burning he amused himself upon musical instruments. The worst part of this event was that he blamed the Christians for the acts, followed by severe form of punishments. The city was rebuilt and Nero occupied a bigger part of it for his palace named "Golden House".

3.Saloth Sar

Pol Patt with the real name of Saloth Sar lived in a village in Cambodia. After the war with Vietnamese and American bombing Pol Patt rose to power.  During his time, millions of people were displaced and many ended up starving to death. His four-year communist plan damaged the country so much that farmers actually collapsed on the fields and his export policies brought malnourishment to the country. He was responsible for the creation of interrogation center now named S-21 where more than 20000 men, women and children were tortured to death during lengthy interrogations, which was equal to psychological abuse.

2.Vlad

Vlad III was the prince of Wallachia and also known as Vlad the impeller. He was best known for resisting against the expansion of the Ottoman Empire and for the impaling of enemies. It is said that the Dracula tale was inspired from him. Even during his imprisonment, he enjoyed torturing insects. After this when he became Prince, the hate his father had for the Ottoman Empire made him conquer some parts of the Empire. Throughout his life from 30,000 to 320,000 people were found dead without reason. He never showed mercy and tortured his victims before killing them.

1.Joseph Stalin

Stalin was perhaps more ferocious than Hitler. He was General Secretary of the Communist party from 1922 until his death in 1953. Under his leadership, Ukraine suffered from a famine named Holodomor. It was with such a high intensity that the estimated deaths were from 2.5 to 10 million due to his direct political and administrative decisions. He refused foreign aid in the country.  He deported more than 850,000 people to frozen tundra's of Siberia, where many lost their lives. In his reign, statistic show that the total number of people murdered ranged from 10 to 60 million.

These folks are worst than any of those vicious women. I did report on Pol Patt in colleage - ugh did you see the pictures those pyramids made of the scalps of the victims of his regime?

I recommend to read "Children of the Arbat" by Anatoli Rybakov. The best anti-Stalinist novel I read.

"Гро́зный" means treatening, harsh, strict

So he should be Ivan The Treatening LOL

He was meantally sick, poisened by mercury, which was main ingrdient of his  treatment for syphilis.

He would get in killing rages, which would then followed by periods of religious mania, when he would confess of his sins, banging his head against floor before the icons to the point when he got bloody forehead.
