1. Adolf Hitler
"What good fortune for governments that the people do not think."



Hitler is without a doubt the most infamous person who ever lived. Not the most evil in my opinion, but he's known for his rampant anti Semitism that caused the death of millions of innocent Jews, gypsies, homosexuals and people with mental and physical illness.



As a young boy, little Adolf Hitler was abused by his father Alois repetitively. Alois was an alcoholic prone to crazy rage. Hitler wanted to be an artist and disobeyed and argued with his superiors, which enraged his father to the point where he was violently beaten. He was also the oldest male child in his family which made him a prime target for his psychotic father.



Hitler later joined the German army and fought in WWI. One of his testicles were shot off, inspiring the famous tune "Hitler has only got one ball."

The lyrics (sung to the tune of The Colonel Bogey March)

'Hitler has only got one ball,
The other is on the kitchen wall,
His mother, the dirty bugger,
Chopped it off when he was small.
She threw it, into the apple tree
The wind blew it into the deep blue sea
Where the fishes got off their dishes and ate scallops and bollocks for tea'


An alternative version has the lyrics:

‘Hitler has only got one ball,
Goering has two but very small.
Himmler is somewhat sim'lar,
But poor old Goebbels has no balls at all.’


LMAO splitting my freakin sides here!!



I don't know how this art school reject could even think that he could become the grand Nazi fuhrer of Germany, and it's puzzling that he actually did. Hitler's powerful speeches and support among the German elite took him to the top of the mountain, but at the end his treachery and evil caught up with him and he committed suicide with his girlfriend Eva Braun in their underground bunker.

He's also known for his Chaplin mustache.



How could anyone even take this dude seriously?

The only good thing:

Nazis were savage dickwads but they sure had awesome parades:



And super cool uniforms:

2. Joseph Stalin
"Death solves all problems."



From 1917 to 1953, this psychopathic leader of the Soviet Union had anywhere from 10 to 20 million people systematically killed in gulags, death squads, war and from other atrocities during the Red Terror. He was ruthless and strict and ruled Russia with an iron fist. People who were suspected of being "traitors" were dragged off in the middle of the night and never seen again.



Stalin was abused brutally as a kid, so it's not wonder he turned out nuts. His father would beat him until he pissed blood. While he was only 5"7, Stalin would scrap with other boys in the schoolyard and beat them mercilessly. His lack of empathy is what got him to where he was in the first place.



There is no exact number of deaths because the NKVD and Soviet archives are heavily censored. Stalin killed millions more than Hitler, yet he's not nearly as well known.

The one good thing:

The Soviet army was the most powerful, deadly and well trained in the entire world.




And pretty good looking too, it seems.

3. Ted Bundy
“We serial killers are your sons, we are your husbands, we are everywhere. And there will be more of your children dead tomorrow”

“I'm as cold a motherfucker as you've ever put your fucking eyes on. I don't give a shit about those people.”




The most well known serial killer of all time, Theodore Robert Bundy, is estimated to have killed anywhere from 40 to 100 women.



Damn creepy bastard. Bundy would hit women on the head with a crowbar, drag them to a secluded location, strangle them and then rape their corpses. GROSS! And the weird thing was, he was seemingly normal, for a serial killer at least. He went to college, came from a good family, had friends, a girlfriend, but he was a nut on the inside.

The one good thing:

He was cute as a kid!


Average listal rating (78 ratings) 2.3  IMDB Rating
4. Osama bin Laden
"We love death. The U.S. loves life. That is the difference between us two."



Terrorist douchebag bigot who was America's Most Wanted Enemy #1 for this:



The one good thing:

Because of Osama, George Bush revealed how stupid he was to the whole world. What the hell was all that "weapons of mass destruction" garbage?


Average listal rating (33 ratings) 2.2  IMDB Rating
5. Heinrich Himmler
"The best political weapon is the weapon of terror. Cruelty commands respect. Men may hate us. But, we don't ask for their love; only for their fear."



Commander of the SS Schutzstaffel and head of the concentration camps, where inmates were gassed with toxic poison in chambers and systematically worked and starved to death. Himmler is the asshole directly responsible for the genocide of millions.



The only good thing:

Himmler committed suicide on May 13 1945 and rid the world of his evil, cold blooded self.



Average listal rating (11 ratings) 8.1  IMDB Rating
6. Vlad The Impaler
"I am the son of the dragon, son of the devil."

"I have killed peasants men and women, old and young, who lived where the Danube flows into the sea, up to such places as Samovit and Ghighen. We killed 23,884 Bulgars without counting those whom we burned in homes or the Turks whose heads were cut by our soldiers."




Vlad was feared across Romania as an evil tyrant with no mercy. His family was gruesomely murdered, and he was void of emotion and sympathy at an early age. Vlad's father was murdered and dumped in a marsh, and his brother was blinded with red hot pokers and buried alive.

Vlad hated Turks because they forced the Muslim religion onto Romania, which obviously went against their Christian traditions. He vowed to murder every Turk he could get his hands on, and killed them in tens of thousands with his army. After he became prince of Wallachia, Vlad carried out even more cruel and torturous punishments.



Just get a load of this:

"His brutal punishment methods were well known. It is said he often ordered people to be skinned, boiled, decapitated, blinded and roasted. He also liked to cut off people's noses, ears, limbs and sexual organs. But his favorite punishment of all was impalement, hence his sobriquet, the Impaler. This gruesome, typically slow and excruciatingly painful way to die often involved driving a stake from the victim's buttocks to his or her mouth. The stakes are said to have been oiled and smoothed so that death would come slowly. He is said to have killed as many as 100,000 in this fashion, often thousands in a single day."

Ouch. He'd also like to eat meals in front of people impaled on stakes, they were a kind of entertainment for him and even fueled his appetite.



But his knack for cruelty wasn't just limited to his foes. Any disobedience from his subjects was met with great severity.

Dracula created a very severe moral code for the citizens of Walachia. You can guess what happened to anyone who broke the code. Thieves were impaled, even liars were impaled. Naturally there wasn't a lot of crime in Walachia during his reign.

To prove how well his laws worked, Dracula had a gold cup placed in a public square. Anyone who wanted to could drink from the cup, but no one was allowed to take it out of the square. No one did.

A visiting merchant once left his money outside all night, thinking that it would be safe because of Dracula's strict policies. To his surprise, some of his coins were stolen. He complained to Dracula, who promptly issued a proclamation that the money must be returned or the city would be destroyed. That night Dracula secretly had the missing money, plus one extra coin, returned to the merchant. The next morning the merchant counted the money and found it had been returned. He told Dracula about this, and mentioned the extra coin. Dracula replied that the thief had been caught and would be impaled. And if the merchant hadn't mentioned the extra coin, he would have been impaled, too.



According to another story, he invited 500 boyars to a banquet and asked them how many princes had ruled in their lifetimes. They said they had lived through many reigns. Shouting that this was their fault because of their plotting, Dracula had them all arrested on the spot. The older ones were impaled; the others were marched 50 miles to Poenari where they were forced to build a mountaintop fortress. They worked a long time; when their clothes fell off, they worked naked. Most of them died, of course. And of course Dracula seized the boyars' property and passed it out to his supporters. In that way he created a new nobility, loyal to him.


Vlad was also really cocky. He would have weird pictures painted of him ordering the executions of famous people. For example, this is him killing Jesus:



What a loon. Most definitely the biggest sadist of all time!

The only good thing:

Vlad inspired Bram Stoker's vampire classic Dracula. People often thought Vlad was a vampire and that he drank the blood of his victims.

7. Gaius Caligula
"Oderint dum metuant"
(Let them hate me so long as they fear me)




Caligula is the biggest pervert of all time. Cal was a salacious, dirty, slag of an emperor. Here's a shortened list of all his douchebaggery:

- he screwed his own sister (and possibly, murdered her)
- he killed his nephew
- he threw people to the lions for entertainment
- he screwed his dinner guest's wives, and raped them even if they didn't want to
- he killed a guy, and called his father over to have dinner with him the next day
- when people were being disemboweled, he told the guards to make their death as slow and painful as it possibly could be
- he turned the royal palace into a whorehouse
- made his horse a senator
- made people worship him like he was a god
- purposely starved the people of Rome

and many other things. That's not even half of the awful shit Cal did.



Sounds like he had a fun life though. But he was murdered at the age of 28 by his own bodyguards. His wife and baby daughter's heads were smashed open on the palace steps.

The one good thing:

He inspired this awesomely violent movie.



Or should I say porno.

8. Nero Caesar
"What an artist dies in me!"
(his last words)




The man who fiddled while Rome burned, who killed his own mother and pregnant wife, who dressed up like a woman and performed in plays, who massacred Christians, the one they call the Antichrist, the fat nasty bastard Nero!



What a guy. This is how he persecuted Christians:

"In their very deaths they were made the subjects of sport: for they were covered with the hides of wild beasts, and worried to death by dogs, or nailed to crosses, or set fire to, and when the day waned, burned to serve for the evening lights."

Setting dogs on people, using them as human candles, what the hell?

I'd say Nero wasn't evil, just a fat flamboyant moron. He was forced to commit suicide after everyone got sick of his weird bullshit.

The only good thing:

He held awesome gladiator games.



Average listal rating (13 ratings) 2.9  IMDB Rating
9. Josef Mengele
"Away with this shit!"
To people who were about to be sent to gas chambers




They called him the angel of death, the sick doctor who performed gruesome experiments on concentration camp victims and left them traumatized and deformed. In the words of the people who knew him:

"Mengele was known as a manic collector of things human, including dwarf corpses, gallstones, and eyes. His fascination with eyes led to the infamous experiments in which he injected various substances into the eyes of brown-eyed Jewish children in an attempt to make them Nordic (blue)."

-Bettina Beech



"I have never accepted that Mengele believed he was doing serious medical work ... He was exercising power. Major surgery was performed without anaesthetic. Once I witnessed a stomach operation — Mengele was removing pieces from the stomach, but without any anaesthesia. It was horrifying."

-Alex Dekel, a camp survivor

"I was given five injections. That evening I developed extremely high fever. I was trembling. My arms and my legs were swollen, huge size. Mengele and Dr. Konig and three other doctors came in the next morning. They looked at my fever chart, and Dr. Mengele said, laughingly, "Too bad, she is so young. She has only two weeks to live..."

-Eva Mozes Kor


The one good thing:

Slayer's metal classic Angel of Death is about him.



Also, Laurence Olivier's evil Nazi dentist character Szell in Marathon Man was inspired by Mengele.



Average listal rating (6 ratings) 1.8  IMDB Rating
10. Gilles de Rais
"Ostensibly he would sit on the belly of his victim and, in this fashion, masturbating, come on the dying body"
-George Bataille




This sodomite pedophile serial killer of children was actually a heroic dude at first. Fighting wars, being knighted, high class, whatever. And next thing you know, he's a godamn sick bastard who's killed 200 little kids.

His own servants, who'd witnessed and helped out in the murders:

"In order to practise his debauches with said children, boys and girls, against the use of nature, [he] first with licentious passion took his rod in his left or right hand, rubbed it so it became erect and sticking out, then placed it between the thighs or legs of the said boys and girls, not bothering with the natural female receptacle, and rub his said rod or virile member on the belly of the said boys and girls with much gratification, heat and libidinous excitement, until he emitted his sperm on their stomach..."



YUCK! As if that's not enough:

"Describing their master as sadistic and cruel, Henriet and Poitou told tales of how he delighted in bathing in the boys' blood and cutting off their heads himself so that he could wash his face and beard in the gore. They said he often had his servants stab a boy in the jugular so he could shower in the spurting blood. He sat on their chests and cut across part of their throats so they bled slowly to death. Others he hanged until they were nearly dead and then cut their throats. Still others had all their limbs cut off, or were ripped open so he could see their hearts and entrails. After death, all the bodies and their clothes were burned in the castle's great kitchen furnaces. The servants spoke of obscene torture and blood-splattered walls in each of his castles."

I bet you wish you never read that.

The only good thing:

Gilles was totally fucked up, but he did fight alongside Joan of Arc.



He also inspired Charles Perrault's classic story Bluebeard.

11. Elizabeth Bathory
"A dark haired beauty of tender years
Is touched by evil and kindles fears
A malignant force runs through her veins
A soulless shell as blood she rains
Fair servant girls she does enslave
Tortured and bleed in ways depraved"




Liz Bathory, or as they called her, the blood countess, is known for killing over 650 servant girls and bathing in their blood for "eternal youth." Hadn't she ever heard of botox or cold cream? Even before she started killing, Liz would often beat her girls to the brink of death for no reason at all. To quote historians,

"The unhappy girls who were lured to the castle, under the plea that they were to be taken into service there, were locked up in a cellar. Here they were beaten till their bodies were swollen. Elizabeth not infrequently tortured the victims herself; often she changed their clothes which dripped with blood, and then renewed her cruelties. The swollen bodies were then cut up with razors. Occasionally she had the girls burned, and then cut up, but the great majority of them were beaten to death. Many accounts say that she was psychotic, and that her mental illness grew worse with age. Many details came out during legal hearings."



"Everitt adds that sometimes she would sew a servant girls mouth shut, force her to eat strips of her own flesh, or burn her genitals, while Wagener indicates that she would stick needles into those who sat with her in a carriage, especially if they were of her own sex. He also advanced another legend: "When she was ill, and could not indulge her cruelty, she bit a person who came near her sick bed as though she were a wild beast. This was, in fact, trial testimony, albeit gained via torture."


What a sadistic bitch. She wasn't even hanged for all that, just confined to a room in the towers with a little slit open so she could be given food.

The only good thing:

She inspired these horror cult flicks.




(from Immoral Tales 1974)

12. Charles Manson
"I punched my mother out once."



I think that quote speaks for itself. Charlie was a crazy freak who ordered his cronie hippie slaves to murder rich people in Beverly Hills. But they weren't human to him, they were just "pigs." Charlie was rejected by his own mother at a young age and was a petty criminal all his life. He didn't even murder people himself, he had to get his brainwashed slaves to do it.



Dirty goddamn hippie. The thing that disturbs me most was that Sharon Tate was pregnant when she was murdered. Instead of hearing her desperate pleas of mercy for her unborn child, Manson's family members just spat at her and said "Look, I have no mercy for you bitch."

He turned this:



into that:



That's not the actual crime scene photo, but it looks just like the real one. I figure if I posted the real crime scene photo people would get offended, so just google it for yourself if you have the stomach for it.

The only good thing:

Vincent Bugliosi chronicled the Manson murders in his classic true crime crime novel Helter Skelter.




Average listal rating (6 ratings) 4.5  IMDB Rating
13. Ivan The Terrible
"I will not see the destruction of the Christian converts who are loyal to me, and to my last breath I will fight for the Orthodox faith."



Ivan Grozny, or as we all call him, the Terrible, blew up people with explosives, impaled people and fried them. He had been poisoned with mercury and went into severe fits of rage and was extremely paranoid. He ruled with absolute power and took away all the peasant's rights and turned them into serfs which were little more than slaves that couldn't leave their masters land.



He went on a reign of terror and killed all whom he thought opposed him. He murdered boyars, and encouraged his army to rape, loot and plunder all of Russia. Ivan accidentally even killed his own son during one of his bitch fits.

The only good thing:

Ivan's killing of his son inspired this amazing classic painting by Ilya Repin.




It's probably the greatest painting ever made. Look at the intense emotion conveyed, the horrified look in Ivan's eyes.


Others


 



Evil, despised bastards from hell.

By the way:

STOP COMPLAINING TO ME THAT VLAD THE IMPALER WAS NOT EVIL. Go pick up a history book, read a biography, go to fucking wikipedia and gtfo my ass.

Awesome list! I enjoyed reading this, but not in that way lol. This was just a really interesting to read.

Good list, but I don't know who hated or would hate Vlad III, except the Turks of course. Actually he is probably the biggest national hero in Romania, for being cruel, but just, unrelenting, and showing no mercy for corrupt nobility or peasantry. There are even sayings in Romanian which basically wish him back into this day and age.

Also, Osama bin Laden might be most hated for the uneducated US citizen, but not rightfully so. Considering that he was just the byproduct of US politics, please add Bush (on whose accounts go millions of dead, legalization of kidnapping and torture, assassination etc.) on that list and add Osama and the Taliban (although they were created by other US presidents) as one of his evils...

And in general don't forget that many atrocities, especially from political leaders, have been added or exaggerated, testimonies falsified or given under torture (see the Templar or countess Bathory processes etc.), by opposing parties or the Catholic Church, at a later point to demonize them (mostly for political reasons).
Edit: 1 year, 11 months ago
Posted: 1 year, 11 months ago at Sep 27 7:50
I agree with @Bael. Vlad III shouldn't be here. His intentions were to free the people of Romania from their usurpers, the Turks. They had invaded many other countries at the time, killing people, obligating their culture and believes, and they did the same in his country. It was his reputation as Vlad the Impaler that kept the Turks away.
Posted: 1 year, 11 months ago at Sep 27 8:03
PS: Here you should put the people responsible for The Atomic Bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. 9/11 was a tragedy, but so was The Atomic Bombing in Japan, the only difference is that Americans always come out with clean hands and everyone forgets everything, but if someone touches America than that is a global tragedy. But I guess is easier to forget what it suits you best.

I rarely ever comment, but the facts about Hitler are sort of out of wack so to speak. He was not his parents' eldest son, he had an older brother named for his father Alois Hitler Jr. His father WAS infact a drunkard, but he was a devoted man to his last wife, and children and infact would often sleep on the floor of their home once his wife continued to give birth to more and more children...I got this info from Wikipedia. They may be wrong too though.
Posted: 1 year, 11 months ago at Sep 27 15:56
Imo the name Ivan Grozny, does not translate directly to Terrible, but more to something like manacing, threatning or fierce.

The movie about his by Sergei Einstein are great.
Good list!

@ Bael

When ever I read history and want to look up the most evil people who ever existed, Vlad's name comes up. I don't know what kind of history you're reading, but since when is impaling Turks on stakes a good thing? Vlad was murderous and cruel, and it's been documented by many historians during and after his time and if you don't believe facts then how is that my problem? Maybe in your opinion, slaughtering villages of non-Romanian people is heroic, but in the opinion of the general public he was an awful human being.

Osama was a bloodthirsy terrorist, and just because George Bush and his republican government were morons who provoked it, it doesn't mean Osama wasn't a sick fuck. I know the US demonized him so they could have a national villain, but he certainly is one of the most hated people who ever lived. Bush is an asshole, but nothing compared to these other people.

And obviously I know that propaganda is often written into history, but I don't know why you're telling me this because I'm not a historian, I just made a freakin list.

@Stella

You guys are really quick to bitch about America, hell I'm not even on their side, I'm not American myself so I don't know why you'd think I'd want to glorify them. But apparently you haven't read your history:

"Estimates of the number of his victims range from 40,000 to 100,000, comparable to the cumulative number of executions over four centuries of European witchhunts.According to the German stories the number of victims he had killed was at least 80,000. In addition to the 80,000 victims mentioned he also had whole villages and fortresses destroyed and burned to the ground."

So that's not evil? Whatever you say....And also, this is a list of famous evil people. The American government at the time decided to bomb Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and there is no single person to point a finger at. Harry S Truman was president at the time, but he is not known as one of the most evil people who ever lived.

@Samcro

You don't know where I got that info? You think I'm just making it up for fun? Historical manuscripts and pamphlets detailing the gory crimes of Vlad exist.

"To this day four manuscripts and 13 pamphlets have been found, as well as the poem by Michel Beheim. The surviving manuscripts date from the last quarter of the 15th century to the year 1500 and the found pamphlets date from 1488 to 1559–1568."

I think you've been brainwashed by Romanian patriotic propaganda. Check your facts.

@Shar

Alois Jr wasn't living with his parents at the time. Hitler was the oldest male in the household, therefore he got beaten. It's well recorded that Alois Sr was very abusive, and despite a few acts of kindness, he treated his son like shit.

As for everyone else:

THANKS for the suggestions but there are too many and I can't add all of them because I'm too damn lazy. And next time y'all wanna complain to me about historical inaccuracies- MAKE SURE YOU KNOW WHAT THE HELL YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT. I'm not an idiot, I've read about this stuff in great depth and I will have to disagree with heresy ,weird conspiracy stuff and malformed opinions that make no sense.
Posted: 1 year, 11 months ago at Sep 28 5:57
How can some of those be "facts"?

"He is said to have killed as many as 100,000 in this fashion, often tens of thousands in a single day."

Even this one statement is ridiculous and contradictory. "often tens of thousands in a single day". Must have been a short rage then.

You are still young, you will learn to doubt many historical "facts" (especially those from darker ages), and realize that they were often written centuries after a person lived, and are just a plain lie. Take the example I've mentioned and read up some of the Templars history and the true reasons for their undoing, or the process against countess Bathory. From serious and modern historians. Those are just two small examples how political manipulation worked. The sad thing is, it obviously still does...

@ Bael

I'll admit I wrote it wrong, like wtf, I meant THOUSANDS a day not tens. But that was a stupid mistake on my part.

As far as facts go, Vlad is known all over as a horrendous despot. What use would any other country have to defame a Romanian prince who existed hundreds of years ago? I don't see the purpose. I'm not the one making shit it up, it's you in your own personal opinion who sees verified history as lies and that has nothing to do with what actually happaned.

Just because I'm young doesn't mean I'm an idiot. Age does not equal intelligence dude. How old were some of the fucked up people on this list? Aged morons. I do doubt history but I give it the benefit of the doubt and I trust the proof before my eyes. I don't make up weird Illuminati b.s. I know about the Templars and their forced confessions, but that doesn't mean Bathory didn't kill hundreds of young girls. There is a limit to how many events that never happened can be lied about. And don't talk to me about political manipulation, I know all about propaganda.

I know the history of Europe, but do you? You wrote about Vlad III as the movies described him but that isn't the hole truth. Get your facts straight http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vlad_the_Impaler
Second: I never said that Europe is better, or accused you for protecting America or something. i didn't write anything about that because i thought @Bael covered that.
The Crusades originally had the goal of reclaiming the Holy Land, including Jerusalem from the Muslims. There were 9 crusades in all ending finally in 1272 A.D. The estimate is that over those 200 years approximately 200,000 people died.
Facts:
The mid 7th century to the mid 10th century CE saw the gradual expansion of Islam. Half of the Christian world was conquered by Arab armies; this included countries in which Christianity had been established for centuries, such as Egypt, southern France, southern Italy, Sicily, Spain, Syria, Turkey, etc. 4

By the late 10th century, Europe and the Middle East were divided into Christian and Muslim spheres of influence. Christian pilgrims from Europe regularly visited Muslim-controlled Jerusalem in reasonable safety. Such pilgrimages were very popular. The were believed to be one of the major acts by which a person could reduce their exposure to the tortures of purgatory after their death.

By the middle of the 11th century, Christianity had formally split between the Roman Catholic Church and the Byzantine Empire: The Emperor/Bishop of Constantinople and the Bishop of Rome had mutually excommunicated each other. In 1071, the Turks defeated the latter at the Battle of Manzikert. This left Constantinople exposed to attack from Muslims. Meanwhile, Christians were being ambushed during their pilgrimages to Jerusalem.

Emperor Alexius asked Pope Urban II for assistance. On 1095-NOV-27, the Pope called on Europeans to go on a crusade to liberate Jerusalem from its Muslim rulers. "The first and second wave of Crusaders murdered, raped and plundered their way up the Rhine and down the Danube as they headed for Jerusalem." 1 The "army" was primarily composed of untrained peasants with their families, with a core of trained soldiers. On the way to the Middle East, they decided that only one of their goals was to wrest control of Jerusalem from the Muslims. A secondary task was to rid the world of as many non-Christians as possible - both Muslims and Jews. The Crusaders gave the Jews two choices in their slogan: "Christ-killers, embrace the Cross or die!" 12,000 Jews in the Rhine Valley alone were killed as the first Crusade passed through. Some Jewish writers refer to these events as the "first holocaust." Once the army reached Jerusalem and broke through the city walls, they slaughtered all the inhabitants that they could find (men, women, children, newborns). After locating about 6,000 Jews holed up in the synagogue, they set the building on fire; the Jews were burned alive. The Crusaders found that about 30,000 Muslims had fled to the al Aqsa Mosque. The Muslim were also slaughtered without mercy.

The Roman Catholic church taught that going to war against the "Infidels" was an act of Christian penance. If a believer was killed during a crusade, he would bypass purgatory, and be taken directly to heaven. By eliminating what might be many millennia of torture in Purgatory, many Christians were strongly motivated to volunteer for the crusades. "After pronouncing a solemn vow, each warrior received a cross from the hands of the pope or his legates, and was thenceforth considered a soldier of the Church." 3

These mass killings were repeated during each of the 8 additional crusades until the final, 9th, crusade in 1272 CE. Both Christians and Muslims believed that they were fighting on God's side against Satan; they believed that if they died on the battlefield they would be given preferential treatment in the Christian Heaven or the Muslim Paradise. Battles were fought with a terrible fierceness and a massive loss of life. Over a 200 year period, perhaps 200,000 people were killed. The Muslim warrior Salah a-Din subsequently recaptured Jerusalem from the Christians.

By the end of the crusades, most European Christians believed the unfounded blood-libel myths -- the rumor that Jews engaged in human sacrifice of Christian children. A long series of Christian persecutions of the Jews continued in Europe and Russia into the 20th century. They laid the foundation for the Nazi Holocaust.

The result of centuries of conflict among followers of the three main Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) was a "deep mutual hatred" and mistrust among the three faiths. Memories of these genocides still influence relationships among Jews, Christians and Muslims to the present time.

Among many Jews and Muslims, the term crusade evokes visions of genocide, mass murder, and mass extermination of innocent people. However, among many Christians it has become a positive term, frequently used to refer to mass rallies and campaigns to win converts - as in the Billy Graham Crusades. Out of respect for the victims of the "first holocaust," we recommend that the term be only used to refer to the wars of the Middle Ages.

@Stella

Jesus Christ, did you write all that yourself? WTF does that even have to do with Vlad??? I READ the whole wiki page of Vlad, and it says several times clearly that he slaughtered MANY MANY people and was greatly despised and feared. YOU are the one who doesn't understand. LOL I can't believe you thought I was gonna read all that and that it was somehow even relevant to any of this. Obviously, all religions have issues but people need to take responsibility for their own actions. I mean, are you stupid or just ignorant? WHY THE HELL DO YOU THINK HE'S CALLED VLAD THE FUCKING IMPALER???? I am sick of this pointless argument with people who don't even know wtf they're talking about.

@Severin Severin Are YOU STUPID? I didn't wrote it for you to read, I wrote for people with actual brains to understand.
Anyway I won't spend much time arguing with someone like you. Unlike you I can say that I have a life, and I don't need to annoy others to feel important.

You goddamn moron. I feel bad for you. You actually think someone's is gonna read your incoherent ramblings? If I wanted to read boring shit like that, Listal is the last place I'd want to see it. And you're the idiot who keeps insisting upon bullshit and annoying me, so I doubt you have a life. Like you could ever make a list half as good as mine. So don't even bother replying back, just go kiss Vlad's ass in hell.

Hey FUCK YOU TOO ASSHOLE! Go ahead and worship your sick hero you stupid twat. Are you racist to Turks or something?? Villages of innocent people were slaughtered for no reason by Vlad and his cronies, I mean, you must be fucked in the head or be severely demented to admire that shithead.

Ugh, STOP WASTING MY GODDAMN TIME BITCH! I mean seriously, more racism? So because I'm Russian, I can't fucking READ ROMANIAN HISTORY??? And oh, lemme guess, you're Romanian so no wonder you think Turks are "evil." Wow dickhead, how obvious can you make your patriotic bigoted bullshit. I'm gonna go stick my dolls up your ass now and btw I'm blocking you because I don't want to waste my life talking to a cocksucker like you.

I can't believe you have Charles Manson on this list. Talk about inappropriate. Manson never killed anyone. He's spent his entire life in prison for crimes he didn't commit.

If you want to put some sick f**ks on here, you should add Muhammad (Islam's so-called "prophet") and Darwin. Now those were sick, twisted people.
Posted: 1 year, 10 months ago at Nov 3 18:57
By the way, the person named "Stella" who posted above, about the Crusades, is a certified moron. The Christians were never a part of the Crusades. It was the Catholic Church. And yes, Stella, there is a significant difference between the Catholic Church and true Christians. So, no, you don't know your history as well as you claim.
Posted: 1 year, 10 months ago at Nov 4 2:18
@Starchild

I can't believe you harassed me on two lists lol how sad. As if I didn't already get lectured by enough crazies. I'm really starting to regret making any list at all. *facepalm*

Charles Manson made his followers do what they did you turd. He was their leader and they were his slaves basically. Ever heard of "accessory to murder?" Except Charles was the biggest accessory. Anyways, as for the Muhammad and Darwin thing I'm not going to argue with you because clearly you're a total sicko and I'm gonna block you too.

I have to admit you've got attitude... and can not believe that people are so rude or disrespectful...
List is good!!! they are all BAD figures from the past.
etc. for someone's Vlad is savior but on other hand he is slaughterer... or Stalin once said to U.S. ambassador A. Harriman:
"The death of one man is a tragedy, the death of millions is a statistic."

Probably any serial killer would fit in well on this list. The story of H.H. Holmes I find particularly fascinating.
http://www.biography.com/people/h-h-holmes-307622

I doubt Jim Jones has many admirers left. The story of Jonestown is compelling. Check out this slideshow! http://abcnews.go.com/Health/slideshow/jonestown-massacre-anniversary-17728596

And dare I suggest the Westboro Baptist Church? I do. I think they embody a brilliant example that religion is man made and the dead certainty it creates is largely inherited from family tradition.

What about Mao? He was responsible for more deaths than Stalin and Hitler combined.
Posted: 1 year, 6 months ago at Feb 6 1:09
Interesting list. Somewhat interesting discussion. History as such isn't objective and what comes to good ol' Vlad he probably was one sick fuck, but then again we are judging him according the morality of today. Impaling enemies on stakes wasn't all that uncommon in the dark ages, actually. And he as well might be according to some historians a great liberator more than a dictator. Hard to say, haven't read all the essays about him. This of course doesn't mean that I disagree, just that some might, maybe many even.

And wikipedia isn't the most reliable source of information anyways... It's a site where bus drivers can write of nuclear physics. :D

And killing anyone doesn't particularly make one evil in the context of history. Killing is a part of human condition. History is full of depraved killers who are considered on a higher note still, even though they killed many people. One could add some half of the medieval papacy here as well as for example Harry S Truman etc. etc. on those grounds.

Anyways a merry band of brigands you have here, and interesting read as well. Keep it up.

Cheerio.

An interesting list indeed. Though it is worth to mention, that most of the first stories about those evil roman emperors were written by their adversaries during the time the empire was still up and running, and some of them weren't the most objective kind of historians. Still, I don't deny their reputation, and that they were quite nasty people indeed.
Posted: 1 year, 5 months ago at Mar 29 18:26
Vlad Tepeş is a hero for us. Romania is a free country because of him. He was cruel but he had a reason. Turks came to take our country and he killed them, what did you expect?! Romania was full of criminals and thieves and these things stopped because of Vlad. Stop playing smart and thinking you know every shit on this planet and learn a little more about Romania or history or whatever your heart wants. That's all, don't bother yourself trying to 'fight' with me.
Posted: 1 year, 5 months ago at Mar 30 3:53
I SO regret putting Vlad's bitch ass on this list because I've had to hear so many complaints that it's driven me insane. Apparently you Romanians adore him sooo much, as this piece of an article explains:

Despite his cruelties and severe punishments, and because of his seething hatred for anything Turkish, he is considered today a national hero by the populace. Because he died in warfare against the foe, even fought against a brother whom he considered a sell-out to the enemy, he is often upheld as a martyr. Statues stand in his honor, and his birthplace at Sighisoara and resting-place at Snagov are considered almost canonical.

"Though many Westerners are baffled that a man whose political and military career was as steeped in blood as was that of Vlad Dracula," writes Elizabeth Miller for Journal of the Dark magazine, "the fact remains that for many Romanians he is an icon of heroism...It is this duality that is part of his appeal."


So I can understand obviously you've been brainwashed to love him despite him being a bloodthirsty tyrant and all. Oh, the fantasy of shallow patriotism! But yeah, you're waaay smarter than me. I'm just a little idiot, you know all, don't you?

Don't worry about the haters Vlad was evil simple as, if people read their history books right they would know that.

Some people get the reality mixed up with the myth of dracula and think that the stories about what he did on the battle field etc was all made up.

Dont forget Pol Pot and what he did in Cambodia, I went to the museum where they tortured thousands of innocent people, and went to the killing fields where they buried up to thousands of people.

In My photots from Cambodia is one of skulls they are from the mass graves.
Posted: 1 year, 3 months ago at May 13 4:54
Every time this list gets on the front page, I'm like OH GOD please no, any list but this one! Because I always get into like 1000 arguments about Vlad the Impaler over and over again. By now I am so filled with regret about putting him on this list, because he's not even one of the most hated people ever, hell it seems like he's one of the most loved even!

I don't think the Turks are/were perfect morally, far from it, but I don't think that's any call for murdering villages full of innocent civilians. The thing is with Vlad, okay he could've been some kind of great hero and all, but was it really necessary to impale his victims and torture them like he did? Defending your country is one thing, but mass murder is another.

Anyways, thank you Dannyjai for backing me up, though I do feel like I am actually wrong about the whole Vlad the Impaler point because clearly many people disagree and think he was some kind of great savior, but regardless, I'm leaving him on this list because I worked too hard on that section and because he was a total bitch.

Also thanks for all the suggestions everybody, but I'm pretty damn lazy and I will write about them when I have the time.
Posted: 1 year, 3 months ago at May 13 5:41
Keep it on the list, there are only what say twenty people who disagree with you, there are other sites that talk about vlad, and all say the same he is in the top ten most hated people for what he did.

If he was here today, he would be up for war crimes, and nobody would be singing his pharses.
Posted: 1 year, 3 months ago at May 13 6:23
Vlad was evil, pure and simple...although there wasn't a single thing pure about him. From everything I've read (and I've read quite a lot in the last 4 decades), he was a sadistic mother who had no qualms about killing anyone at all.

He ruled by fear and there are ample reasons why he was a basis for Dracula.
