Top Ten Most Evil Leaders in HistoryI want the worst of the worst, give me the most evil, heartless, inhumane leaders in history!!!
In my time reading about history, I've come up with the term "superdictator". What this means is that the dictator in question did so many atrocities that they earn a title above dictator. Besides Stalin, Hitler perfectly fits this term. Not only was he responsible for the humiliation, and later slaughter of 11 million innocent lives, he also started a pointless conflict driven by his own anger. I'm glad Germany has made a clean slate ever since the Third Reich, because they deserve it after such a horrific leader.
As evil and cruel as he was.. I kinda feel bad for him, because he was raised in shackles in cells, and was just once a happy boy who wanted to impress people with his art skills. Hitler reminds me of Darth Vader. Ya know..
I strongly agree with him the most evil person in the world. He started the Holocaust. He hated Jews, Gypsies, people with disabilities, homosexuality and many more. If I was in Germany at his time, I would be killed because I'm deaf. I'm absolutely disgusted by Hitler and his beliefs of "perfect Germans". He think that he can abuse his power. Over 6 millions of Jews were killed, thanks to Hitler.
This man was probably possessed by the Devil himself who would kill people based on religion, and would kill people if they disagreed to him, if they did do that it would be a one-way ticket to a concentration camp, finally who the hell would send children to the front lines.
Dude was one of the worst men, if not *the* worst man in history. He caused the deaths of millions in terror famines and in concentration camp-like gulags. He, like Hitler, hated jews.
This man is an absolute nightmare for killing 40 over millions of people. One may argue that Hitler literally wiped out the entire Jewish state but Stalin takes the cake for being one of the most brutal leaders to ever exist. His reign of terror doesn't only function on famine to make "USSR" great but also his paranoia and fear that people will murder him. Millions suffered under him. His inhumanity earns him a throne of skulls and an ocean filled with the blood of the innocent and even his own wife and son because he was unwilling to "negotiate with fascists."
Anyone who didn't agree with the communist ruling were sent to the Gulag or Tortured and executed. One survivor tells that a woman walked into a prison torture chamber and found her husband in a chair with his feet burned so the skin had been peeled off. Also his eyes had been gouged out and his lips had been cut off.
I do know that nazi scientists made experiments on twins in the concentration camps and tried to switch eye colour on prisoners.
After all I have read about world war 2 I have to say that Josef Stalin was the worst. Remember that he also did'nt like jews and sent them to the gulag. It didn't matter who you were if you didn't agree with the Soviet rule you would be tortured or killed. Stalin let the KGB kill people that he saw as a threat, because he wanted to rule Soviet.
When his wife died nobody could see any reaction from Stalin. He didn't cry, he didn't get angry. When his own son were captured by the germans he didn't even try to negotiate. He told the ...more
How is barrack obama worse than this man. Do you people know anything of history. Obama didn't kill twenty million people of his own country because he wanted to stay in power. Am I the only young person in this world that knows anything about history.
Mao Zedong was never a good leader at all. After his cultural revolution and great leap forward, he has murdered over 60 million Chinese people. Yet China still sees this guy as their godly hero, and many portraits of him are displayed throughout the country. Mao killed people through famine, labor camps, torture, or maybe even executions. He was a cunning and ruthless leader, who still has his name honored through China.
Historians argue on the number of deaths to attribute to Mao, but the number is most likely 70 million. Mao killed people just to solve China's problems. He did not talk bad about them or even care about them. On the other hand, Hitler was all about eliminating the less desirable people from his Germany. The world knew but did not really stop him. Mao just straight killed people through famine, labor, or execution. He was cunning. I wish more people would learn about him and see that he was just straight up evil.
Geeze, that dude is evil! Ignoring the fact that he killed a bunch of citizens, the people he killed are mostly university students and doctors, can you believe that? He actually sort of drugged the solders to turn them against their own people, he's darn crazy I tell u! And he's the dude who lets the students to object him in the first place, what?! Except that he totally ruined the country by causing a famine (killed ~20percent people off), destroying thousands of old articrafts, brainwashing the people to kill off scholars and famous artists and writers in the great cultural revolution. he's probably losing his touch as he gets older!
Hey Mao Zedong, here's my giant middle finger you shove up your anus for all of the people that you murdered. Send me a postcard and tell me what Hell is like.
This was not a terrible monster in the way most of these crazy, power hungry, people. This was a sad, sad man bent on revenge for his treatment after witnessing the atrocities of war and valorously saving his people from slaughter. Coming home crippled his battle torn mind. Think of this, we have solders today coming back from war scared for life without injury and we use weapons that either blow people up or tear through people from a distance. Now imagine having to go into battle with the weapons of that time and the damage that would cause after war with no morals. He also had as close to NO CRIME during his reign.
Hitler may have killed a lot of people but in terms of evil, vlad deserves number one. He would impale people by putting long wooden stakes up people's anus until the stake goes out of their mouths. Sometimes he'd impale them from the front or back. He chopped people's genitals off. He boiled infants and children and forced their parents to eat them. He drunk people's blood, he hammered two guys hat on each other's head where they could never take them off just because they didn't bow to him. He went in fields of rotten corpses and laughed and mocked them. It's probably true, Satan might not welcome this maniac to hell.
1) Vlad ate in the fields of impaled rotting corpses, dipping his bread in a bowl of their blood. He even had one of his guest's nose cut off and impaled the man for simply plugging his nose during dinner because of the rotting smell.
2) These fields were mix between people hanging on spikes, and those who received the round end. The round end was inserted in anally and were hung there for days until before dying from the weather or dehydration.
Think about it. A field of rotting corpses, hundreds of people screaming in agony, and this guy doesn't lose his appetite, it actually makes him hungry?
3) Most of the other evil people in history ordered mass killing for political gain or to exploit free labor. It got to the point where Vlad was taking innocent people to impale just b/c he gets off on it laugh out loud.
Well I saw a lot more Georg W Bush and Barack Obama, but there not evil there just morons now Vlad the Impaler is the real deal. He was so evil that it is rumored that not even Satin welcomed him to hell. Point number 1 he had a very homicidal character. Point number 2 he killed thousands of innocent people those who were not Catholic, he killed people for entertainment, he would literally roast little children and make there parents eat them (that is far worse than abortion), and for capital punishment he would impale his victims with a wooden pool by jabbing them from the groin or vagina all the way to the inside of the brain and harvest there blood for wine. Point number 3 it's because of his brutality that had inspire the story of Count Dracula.
Believed in communism and turned Cambodia back 200 years with his stupid Khmer Rouge and maniacal ideas. He led a genocide that ended in the deaths of 2 million innocent people, and didn't face any real punishment for it. Anyone who didn't comply with his communist-related laws would be sent to labor camps where they work their asses off at least 10 hours a day. But if they commit "political" crimes, they would either be sent to death camps, executed, or tortured. He spreads lies and propaganda around his country, isolated his people from the outside world, ensures them that they are the only "real" country, and that if they dare leave Cambodia they would suffer a fate worse than death. If this guy isn't worse than Min Aung Hlaing then I don't know who is.
Farmer in Cambodia with a vision. He was the leader of the communist revolution. Created a police state with the mission to return Cambodia to an agricultural state. Created death camps for all professional people (those who weren't farmers) and murdered over 3,000,000 people. Eventually, communist Vietnam came to help them because it was so bad there
After Obama? Are you people mental? Maybe the whole dam world is... Pol Pot, Amin, Somoza regime, come on... Now let's see what the new clown in office does. Sure Bush, Clintons, Roosevelts, blah blah blah. BUT until you live in a country where, its easier and cheaper to get a gun, versus 5lbs of rice. And the police tear loved ones from your arms... USA... is a nice place to be. If you don't like it. LEAVE
Pol pot was completly insane. He admittly killed 3 MILLION inonnocent cambodians to till soil with there bare hands. In his biggest jail, only 15 people emerged alive. His farms were known as the 'killing fields'. At least hitler gave a reason for the death of 6 million jews. It may have been a lie, but it will do (not saying that hitler was a good man)! His prison man holds the record of 'largest war criminal convicted in the 21st centruy'
Way more evil than his son. He had hundreds of innocent people executed to set a warning for those who he feared might revolt against his Jucheist ideas. Not to mention, he ruined the economy and did nothing about the Korean famine.
At least his nephew executed him so now there is one stupid baby instead of two.
I am from South Korea and I hate him. I always wondered why he is even trying to fight with the whole world. He is an idiot enough to try to fight 1 on 1000000.
This is ridiculous! Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was a loving, gentle man! If he was evil, do you think that millions of people around the world would be following the religion sent for him to preach by Allah? Just read this and decide whether or not you think that words like this would come out of an evil mans mouth: "You do not do evil to those who do evil to you, but you deal with them with forgiveness and kindness"
I am a fourteen year old girl, and even I know that an evil man would not have said such meaningful and beautiful words. I think you need to use your brain and redefine the meaning of "evil" in your naïve little world.
The creator of Islam, the most dangerous ideology ever, was a mass murderer, an assassin, a slaver, a sex slaver, a rapist and a pedophile, etc. The horrible Islamic law Sharia is so barbaric that orders cruel punishments for people who doesn't live their lives exactly as this man wanted them to live.
Molested his wife �" six-year-old Baby Aisha. One of Baby Aisha's wifely duties was to clean semen stains from the prophet's clothes. The prophet would take a bath with Baby Aisha and 'thigh' with Baby Aisha, meaning she was too small to be penetrated so he would take his penis and rub it up and down her thighs and against her vagina. Being a man of 'mercy' he did not penetrate Baby Aisha until she was nine.
How many holocausts have been carried out in the name of Allah because of the prophet Muhammad? The victims, numberless and forgotten. It is a sin to speak against him, though we do not even know his face. Truly the most evil of all time.
Now unlike the dum-dum's who voted Muhammad, THIS GUY deserves the hate
Killed thousands in 9/11
Hated by The west, even other muslims
Leader of Al-Qaeda, an evil terrorist organization
Thankfully he's dead
He started everything Americans, Middle Easterners and Europeans see today as terrorism, hate, and disaster. Without him, the likely hood a random girl in a Hijab is called a terrorist would be nearly incomprehensible. ISIS's creation wouldn't have come close to starting. Iconic parts of the U.S would still be here. And millions of People from around the globe would still be alive
I wonder why this one is seventh. Surely his evilness level is equal to if not more than Hitler? And why is Obama 3rd? He might not be a good president, but he's definitely not as evil as Hitler or bin Laden who were responsible for the deaths of millions of innocent people. A moron such as Laden should be in the top 3.
He leaves a bad impression on what Muslims and other Middle-Eastern people are actually like.
Destroyed his own economy, spreads propaganda around his country like it's hot news, executes defectors and people who make the slightest mistakes, forced people to cry at his father's funeral, assassinated his older brother in fear that he would take the heir instead of him, forced people to believe that he is god and can control everything based on his moods, made a "pleasure squad" where he forced 2000 attractive women to have _ _ _ with him and his top officials, made his people believe that the US is the poorest country in the world, named his country the "hermit kingdom," and much more...
Evil. Small. Fat. Stupid. How can the USA start thousands of problems in the Middle East and NOT blow out his brains. I think he deserves it most he's like Adolf Hitler 2.0... Anyone agree? How can anybody think putting a crazy maniac teletubby in control of anything is a good idea? I don't get it, I'm going to put him in the drawer that I put Osama, Adolf and Justin Bieber in...
The Most Evil Man alive who Kills People in Brutal Ways But He luckily can't do much with his as the Medic would put it SCHWEINHUND Hands on his Puny Red Button but just Yet.
Why is he lower than Bush? Also look below Obama, I think Attila the hun is a lot worse then semi socialist health care.
The worst leader of Russia. Unlike Stalin, Ivan actually killed people for no reason other than he was bored. As a child, he threw puppies off towers for fun. Now he is known as a terrible man, even by Russians. This just goes to show how sadistic this monster was.
He was terrible he beat his pregnant daughter in law causing a miscarriage when his son heard. of this he confronted him but ivan killed him. He also invaded the city called Novgorod and ordered 500 to 1000 people be tortured to death in front of him each day this included being skinned disembowled boiled fried and beaten to death. 60000 people were killed not to mention the thousands of people that were killed on other occasions. He forced hundreds of parents to watch their children be tortured and killed.
Ivan the Terrible. Ivan the Horrible. HIs nickname is absolutely correct.
Stranger: Hi, what's your name?
Ivan: *Pulls out sword.*
I shouldn't need to tell you what happens next.
He killed his son. I don't think more needs to be said.
Killed 10 million people
He eats people alive
Saddam may not have killed as many as Stalin or Hitler did, but when he kill people he asked his mercenaries in the most brutal ways, Burn, bury them alive, Acid pools, throw them off the third floor. Besides when you commit a "sin" against the great leader, not only that you will be executed by yourself but you father and uncles will suffer the same fate.
Actually, Saddam didn't have nukes. Read a newspaper, geez! While he didn't have WMD's, he did use gas attacks, under the guise of testing them, in an attempt to wipe out the Kurdish people who populate northern Iraq. He was a monster, and I'm glad he's dead.
He had chemical weapons
He was a good person
Why would bush or Obama be on this list. Pretty sure their not as bad as Attila or Stalin. Seriously people. If this is what our country has come down to, saying bush is a mass murderer or Obama is a terrorist because you don't like them or their political party then we're screwed. Your all acting like a bunch of children. Just grow up and stop saying that these two men are some of the worst in history. All the people that put Obama on this list just go home and vote for Donald Trump, and all the people who put Bush on this list just go back to jacking off to conspiracy theory video about how bush did 9/11. My god people.
I'm a die-hard democrat, bleeding heart liberal, etc., and can't stand any of the Bushes - in the context of being leaders - but they are not evil. He's stupid, they are all corrupt to some extent, but he did not kill the people who died in 9/11 anymore than Hillary killed the Benghazi victims. His incompetence was a factor in the "success" of the terrorist attack, but you don't know that he could have prevented it or that had he averted that particular plan, Osama woudn't have had another one ready and waiting. Dick Cheney is evil, W was just his dimwitted puppet. Regardless, you can't put him on the same list as Hitler. And whoever said Obama makes W look like Winston Churchill is an imbecile.
Under the Bush Administration, it was a good reason why people outside of the United States hated Americans. In addition to Dick Cheney who was given a significant role by encouraging war against the Iraqi's. George Bush is worse than Nixon, except Bush was waging war while Nixon ended the war. The War in Iraq was the biggest mistake in history, therefore it was a good reason why 9/11 happened because of this old man. A man who clearly doesn't know how to address issues in America. We supported Obama for a good reason because of the Financial Crisis.
Brought utter destruction upon a great nation. One of the worst ever. Worst on the economy, started a war based on lies (murder), brought cronyism to a new level, unprecedented tax breaks for the rich leading to the middle class starting to fade. Horrible failure as a communicator, spoke like a dimwitted fool. It will take a generation or more for the USA to recover from Bush. He should be jailed.
Executed people live and stored their bodies in fridges so he could laugh at them. Not to mention, he was also a cannibal, had no regards for the Ugandan people, and executed at least 500000 people during his brutal reign.
You don't know anything about this man. He the greatest nationalist the little nation of Uganda has had/will ever have! Some of you posting things you no nothing about! I lived there during his regime. If you want to compare see what the present regime that has been in power for 30 years is doing to the indigenous Ugandans. Did you see what they did in the North for 20 years! Probably you NEVER SAW THE MASSACRE IN KASESE! or how innocent people have been rounded up on pretext that they murdered Kawesi including imprisoning 2 year old!
This guy would chop up his enemies/people he'd punished, keep their remains in his fridge as trophies and laugh at them. If anything he should be up there next to Vlad the Impaler.
This man was truly Satanic. He even ate the meat of his victims. Can you just imagine the way those people were tormented by being treated as animals for food.
Genghis Khan was not an evil leader. He created the biggest empire known to man and because of this, united all of the people that he conquered. This helped spread religion and culture. And to all of the comments saying that he murdered everyone including the women and children, he gave the people a chance to join him and prosper under him and get the protection he was willing to give. He killed everyone only if they didn't take him on his offer. Hey, better than killing everyone because of there religion AKA Hitler.
He also became one of the first leaders to adopt free religion and created a set of laws that sound more like the commandments then evil murderous laws. Just go to the Genghis Khan exhibit that will help you see the real Genghis not the cruel monster every wants him to be
Genghis Khan was horrible, there is still to this day a large portion of his direct descendants due to how many women he rapped, not to mention he didn't even have a moral or reason for it he just came in F.S.U. and left.
He slaughtered more people than hitler. When he was attacking the shaw tribe their was a moat around there castle his horses could not get around so he made a bridge of his drowned captives
Vladimir Putin is an empire-building narcissist that needs to be taken out. He is a shining example of why the world suffers. Condemn his war on Ukraine and the suffering he has caused.
He orders the Russians to occupy countries (like Georgia) and threatens countries that Russia could conquer them in two days (I know he said this about Poland and Romania). Very terroristic state he rules.
Brutal dictator, pointlessly killing thousands of Ukrainian civilians in a war of vanity and choice.
He just soared up the list by invading Ukraine completely unprovoked.
Devastated the people of the Congo by enslaving and exploiting a free people. Easily as evil as Hitler and caused the death of millions. Cut off children's hands and tormented the women so that the men would work harder. King Leopold was brutal
This guy may have been even worse than Hitler. He killed unspeakable amounts of people.
He was the most evil person alive!
He killed over 10 million people!
This guy enslaved Cubans, lied to America every way possible, and was not a good ally to Nikita Krushchev either. He managed to fail a lot of Krushchev's tasks, and the FBI tried to assassinate him over 600 times! You know Castro's a monster if his assassination attempts are over 100.
Castro has to be one of the best liars in history, like Trump, but much more skilled at convincing others to ignore the evidence at hand. He killed some 18 percent of the population to take power (getting rid of another 4% in exiling them) and had any book that promoted freedom of thought burned. A true monster, based on his actions.
Same as many other latinamerican dictators but managed to stay in power by selling himself as a lefty leader for the poor. In reality under communist Cuba everybody became poor but he and his family
The real thing about the us is trying to assassinate him and the rest is because the baking system inside their government.
Father of a troubled nation, was a puppet for Stalin, tried to take over South Korea, and killed over a million people.
The one who started what's really wrong about the world.
His political ideology known as Communism is the reason why Communist countries killed millions of People like USSR, China, North Korea, Cuba and Eastern European countries during Cold War, it only ended in 1989 though China, North Korea, Vietnam, Laos and Cuba only remains.
Communism Sucks and that's the FACT!
He promoted Atheism, Mass starvation, Death to the Opposition and most of all anti-free Market!
Cult leader with his fantasy novel about equallity utopia that using as propagada by all evil dictators & politicians in human history.
Marx was never a leader, the man was a fantastic philosopher. pretty much exemplifying the phrase "All men are created equal" (even though he didn't say it) he wanted equal rights, and equal pay, for everyone...and for some reason, he's on a list with evil mothers like Caligula, Hitler, Zedong, Castro, Stalin, (and worst of all) MARGARET THATCHER
His idea of communism was actually beautiful. He would love that everyone got paid equally, had the same rights, etc. But he didn't think about the person who would make all the rules, the dictator. So it was a good idea but bad in real life.
He is the real leader of Japan. All the blame is put on the emperor but it was really the prime minister who gave all the orders to the soldiers like in the war against China
Fascist freak who eyed an invasion in Northern Africa, he was also an ally for Hitler, and created an ideology (Fascism) that doesn't even work!
Didn't know how to fight for Hitler and always disappointed Hitler in every way. Mussolini would be the worst ally to have in a global war as he doesn't know how to lead a army and even threw away the Italian fleet. He was greedy and started war with Greece who wanted to be neutral. Mussolini got what he deserved and died for cowardness in war
A very talented and efficient leader, but an ignoramus.
This guy was almost as bad as Caligula. He was ruthless and murderous. And you must be evil to kick your pregnant wife to death and try to kill your own mother. In fact, he was so evil that he crucified Christians and burned them alive. Now, that's just evil! He would not think twice about killing someone or beating them to a bloody pulp!
He killed innocent people! Mother flipper he was a no good, dirty bastard
That should have been burned at the stake, twice!
Why is he only #30? He's basically Hitler before the existence of the actual Hitler.
An efficient and effective administrator, but a buffoon and an ignoramus.
