Top Ten Most Evil Leaders in History

I want the worst of the worst, give me the most evil, heartless, inhumane leaders in history!!!

The Top Ten

1 Adolf Hitler Adolf Hitler (April 20, 1889 - April 30, 1945) was a German politician who was the leader of the Nazi Party, Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945, and Führer of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. As dictator of Nazi Germany, he initiated World War II in Europe with the invasion of Poland in September ...read more.

He killed 6 million jews, started a second world war, tried to conquer the world, he even tried to create a nuclear bomb. He will go done in history as the greatest monster democracy stopped ever. People feared when the heard over a million people in Nuremburg shout HEIL ADOLF HITLER FUHRER OF GERMANY MASTER OF ALL GERMANS MARTYR FOR KILLING THE JEWISH ENEMY!

He was responsible for the death of over about 15 million people. His ideas were the ones of a maniac. He is the definition of monster.

He blamed the Jews for Germany's problems. He wanted revenge because the thought Germany was treated unfairly after the first world war. Hitler was a good leader in some ways but he lead his country the wrong way

This man was Satan, himself for killing millions of innocent people.

No, Satan = Stalin. Hitler had some good intentions which are just badly implemented.

2 Joseph Stalin Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin was a Georgian dictator, and was the leader of the Soviet Union from the mid-1920s until his death in 1953. Holding the post of the General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, he was effectively the dictator of the state.

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.

Hi killed much more person than Hitler, but "at least" they were goy peole.

HE IS THE WORST MAN ON EARTH!
cOMPARING HIM TO HITLER, HITLER IS A LITTLE BABY.
iT IS REALLY SAD THAT MANY PEOPLE LIKE HIM

3 Mao Zedong Mao Zedong, also transliterated as Mao Tse-tung and commonly referred to as Chairman Mao, was a Chinese communist revolutionary and founding father of the People's Republic of China, which he governed as Chairman of the Communist Party of China from its establishment in 1949, until his death in 1976. ...read more.

This guy killed 30 million to 100 million innocent people, what a devil from hell.

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.

No leader killed more of his own people than mao
Plus people in China think he is a hero because the lies they watch on T.V.

This bald evil and stupid leader commit the most murder then Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin. He should be number 1. Responsible for messing around either

4 Vlad the Impaler Vlad III (Known as "Vlad the Impaler" or "Vlad Dracula", born 1431) was a Romanian monarch. He was the ruler of Wallachia a total of three times before his death in 1476/7. He is most famous for his reputation as a dictator and his gruesome torture methods and executions, in which he has served as an ...read more.

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.

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.

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.

What a horrible man I'm even starting to think Satan is better than him and that in my case is very rare.Infact lets say extremely rare

5 Pol Pot Pol Pot, born Saloth Sar, was a Cambodian revolutionary who led the Khmer Rouge from 1963 until 1997. From 1963 to 1981, he served as the General Secretary of the Communist Party of Kampuchea.

First of all, we Vietnamese are not communists, but socialists. Second of all, THIS MF GUY SHOULD GO TO HELL!

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

He is stupid killed over 4, 000, 000 innocent people for power he has a had a huge prison with only 16 people emerged alive

He should be number 1. He literally did anything he could to stomp happiness and emotion out of society.

6 Muhammad Muhammad (570 AD - 632 AD) was an Arabian Prophet, best known as the central figure (and last prophet) of the Abrahamic religion of Islam and is amongst the most revered and important historical figures in the world.

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.

Muhammad was one of the worst and evil history fanatics he killed innocent Christian who would not become muslim he is the tyrant of the east go to hell and burn internally

how in the world is he one of the worst he was kind and gentle to all living things he even didn't step ant and said do not harm any living thing even a plant he always laughed and smiled and he had a soft voice all the time if he was evil then very less people will follow him and the religion islam will not be as today
he never showed anger to anyone even when prophet was tortured 7 years just telling people about islam and calling peace to the world
even historians say that without him there will be no peace

Prophet Muhammad is the best man in the world he is very loving man

7 Kim Jong-il Kim Jong-il was the supreme leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, commonly referred to as North Korea, from 1994 to 2011. By the early 1980s Kim had become the heir apparent for the leadership of the country and assumed important posts in the party and army organs.

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.

At least his nephew executed him so now there is one stupid baby instead of two.

Wasn't his nephew evil too

The worlds most evil tubby tubby

8 Ivan the Terrible Ivan IV Vasilyevich, commonly known as Ivan the Terrible or Ivan the Fearsome, was the Grand Prince of Moscow from 1533 to 1547, then Tsar of All Rus' until his death in 1584. The last title was used by all his successors.

No Wonder Why He Is Called Ivan The "Terrible"!

He killed people for entertainment

He killed his own son!

Ivan the Terrible. Ivan the Horrible. HIs nickname is absolutely correct.

Stranger: Hi, what's your name?
Ivan: *Pulls out sword.*
Stranger: Uh-oh.

I shouldn't need to tell you what happens next.

9 Kim Jong Un Kim Jong-un is the Chairman of the Workers' Party of Korea and supreme leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, commonly referred to as North Korea.

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...

He is a crimes against humanity and torture his own fellow north Korean.

The North Korean No1 Pig = Kim Jong Un

Why is he lower than Bush? Also look below Obama, I think Attila the hun is a lot worse then semi socialist health care.

10 Osama bin Laden Osama bin Mohammed bin Awad bin Laden was a Saudi Arabian-born stateless terrorist. He was a founder of al-Qaeda, the organization that claimed responsibility for the September 11 attacks on the United States, along with numerous other mass-casualty attacks against civilian and military targets worldwide. ...read more.

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 is definitely not more evil than Hitler, but I agree. Bush and Obama need to be much lower.

He leaves a bad impression on what Muslims and other Middle-Eastern people are actually like.

One of the most evil beings the world has ever known

A complete idiot. Hate him. He should at least be number 2

The Newcomers

? Mikhail Gorbachev

The Contenders

11 George W. Bush George Walker Bush is an American politician who served as the 43rd President of the United States from 2001 to 2009 and 46th Governor of Texas from 1995 to 2000. The eldest son of Barbara and George H. W.

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.

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.

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.

When people start throwing shoes at you, can't respect you much. better worry about judgment day after what you and Cheney did. Fire coming. all our innocent young military murdered for financial gain to your wallet. UNBELIEVABLE how anyone could value money that much.

12 Saddam Hussein Saddam Hussein Abd al-Majid al-Tikriti was the fifth President of Iraq, serving in this capacity from 16 July 1979 until 9 April 2003. A leading member of the revolutionary Arab Socialist Ba'ath Party, and later, the Baghdad-based Ba'ath Party and its regional organization Ba'ath Party – Iraq Region—which ...read more.

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.

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.

He used nuclear weapons on his own people to attack the army but it hardly did any thing apart from let every one see how much of a monster he was and he won on deadliest warrior so this guy is king of the monsters

He had chemical weapons

13 Attila the Hun Attila, frequently called Attila the Hun, was the ruler of the Huns from 434 until his death in March 453.

Killed 10 million people

He eats people alive

He's awesome

14 Idi Amin Idi Amin Dada was a Ugandan politician and military officer. He was the President of Uganda from 1971 to 1979. Amin was born either in Koboko or Kampala to a Kakwa father and Lugbara mother. In 1946 he joined the King's African Rifles of the British Colonial Army.

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.

I can only say that he was just evil. If he is to come back on this earth, even satan would repent.

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.

Very cute anime girl

15 Leopold II

Murdered 10 million people in the Congo and mutilated millions of innocent people

This guy may have been even worse than Hitler. He killed unspeakable amounts of people.

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

Basically Hitler but with an even higher body count

16 Fidel Castro Fidel Alejandro Castro Ruz, known as Fidel Castro (August 13, 1926 – November 25, 2016), was a Cuban politician and revolutionary who governed the Republic of Cuba as Prime Minister from 1959 to 1976 and then as President from 1976 to 2008. Politically a Marxist–Leninist and Cuban nationalist, he ...read more.

The real thing about the us is trying to assassinate him and the rest is because the baking system inside their government.

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

I mean he wanted to throw the presedent of Cuba overboard in a moving car.

He inspired many communist terrorist groups around the world to fight in this violent revoulotion including the ppk and F.A.R.C. sEARCH UP FARC COLUMBIA GET THIS EVIL TERRORIST GROUP KILLED AND SAVE COLUMBIA NOW. STOP EVIL COMMUNISM.

17 Bashar al-Assad Bashar Hafez al-Assad is the current President of Syria, holding the office since 17 July 2000. He is also commander-in-chief of the Syrian Armed Forces, General Secretary of the ruling Arab Socialist Ba'ath Party and Regional Secretary of the party's branch in Syria.

Why are Jesus, Muhammad, Obama, and Bush ABOVE the president of Syria?

18 Dick Cheney Richard Bruce Cheney, generally known as Dick Cheney is an American politician and businessman who was the 46th Vice President of the United States from 2001 to 2009, under President George W. Bush.

He pushed for war with his own agenda and let Bush take the heat for it. He manipulated Bush like a puppet, and made millions from selling arms to the US military.

Why would he be on the most evil leaders in history. Everybody who put Cheney on this list, grow up.

Yup what a dick

He should be in jail.

20 Kim il Sung Kim Il-sung was the first Supreme Leader of North Korea, from its establishment in 1948 until his death in 1994. He held the posts of Premier from 1948 to 1972 and President from 1972 to 1994.

He is just as evil as his son and grandson

He Was Terrible, But His Son And Grandson Are MUCH Worse

The one who started what's really wrong about the world.

21 Genghis Khan Genghis Khan c. 1162 – August 18 1227, born Temüjin, was the founder and Great Khan of the Mongol Empire, which became the largest contiguous empire in history after his death.

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 slaughtered (babies men women did not matter who) the entire population of a village but 1 person or 2 who he allowed to run away after burning down the entire city/village all so the next city would surrender with out fighting even if they where much stronger then the invading Mongolian army.

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

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.

22 Hideki Tojo Hideki Tōjō was a general of the Imperial Japanese Army, the leader of the Imperial Rule Assistance Association, and the 27th Prime Minister of Japan during much of World War II, from October 17, 1941, to July 22, 1944. As Prime Minister, he was responsible for ordering the attack on Pearl Harbor, ...read more.

I don't know who dis dude is

Horrible Man

Japanese ruler of WW2 killed millions of innocent for conquest killed and raped Chinese with his solders let his country stand alone in WW2 let his people get nuked and forced his army's onto crocodile invested islands

23 Karl Marx Karl Marx was a German philosopher, economist, historian, political theorist, sociologist, journalist and revolutionary socialist. Born in Trier to a middle-class family, Marx studied law and Hegelian philosophy.

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.

Lol that is so stupid that is like putting plato or aristotle on this list. He was literally just a writer/philosopher.

Marx was a Philosopher, not a leader...

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

24 Donald Trump Donald John Trump (born June 14, 1946) is an American businessman, television personality, politician, and the 45th President of the United States.

We all know that he is a comedian who doesn't deserve to be in the seat of the president

Worst US President

He should be number two kim is one for eating dog trump is two for removing laws that protect endangered animals cde hitler is third and stalin is fourth

Donald trump is the biggest douche in the universe

25 Barack Obama Barack Hussein Obama II served as the 44th president of the United States of America. He was elected in 2008 after serving in the Senate from 2005-08, beating John McCain and becoming the first African-American to be elected President of the United States. He was elected again in 2012, beating Mitt ...read more.

Blah. Blah. Blah. REALLY. One dude is really the bane of America? I thought the "top 10" list was cure until I saw GW Bush and Obama on the list. - get over it already. The both supported the military. They both presided over the Great Recession. They both sanctioned clandestine operations (just like every other President). They both took on a Congress lead by the other party (and blamed everything on them). They both were elected by a majority of citizens (well, except the whole 2000 Gore thing...).

If you're existence is so bad that the US President is individually responsible, maybe it's not him. Just say'n. Just keep waiting for a Government or President to show up and do exactly what you want. And while you're waiting notice the lights are still on, the grocery store is still stocked and there's a Starbucks on every corner.

What a joke some of these posts are!

Stupid bush should be on here since he ruined Iraq and Afghanistan by war and killed millions of people there

Almost ruined this country. I'm put him higher, like # 6. Worst American president...worse than Carter.

Yes, and you know what else? Ebola broke out when Obama was in power. The Seahawks crapped the end of their game, Millions of people starved to death in foreign countries, North Korea hacked sony and global warming started. He has managed to keep his identity secret despite being one of the most famous people in the US, but spies have informed us he is half martian and has a third nipple. OBAMA=AWFUL. OBAMA IS THE CAUSE OF ALL PAIN AND TROUBLES TO THE United States.

Just kidding. That's what you look like though, blaming one human being for your problems.

I mean, I don't really like him but that doesn't mean that he was an evil leader. He was a very poor excuse for what American stands for; like hard work, living the American dream, being a patriot, etc. He shunned our military, opened our borders to illegal immigrants before helping his own citizens, made it "cool" to protest for things that weren't even issues (wage gap was a skewed statistic based on ALL incomes and women statistically stay home in larger numbers than men so OF COURSE it seemed we were paid less, but we aren't! ) and had the highest unemployment rate. I would never vote for him, for Killary, but I don't think he is inherently evil, just warped and a socialist.
