Worst Kings and Queens of England

Sort by: Showing 14 items
Rating: List Type:
Don't believe the absurd recent mass revisionism and sanctification as a new tourist attraction. Yes, he really was a child killer, throne grabber and scheming mass murderer.
Kenji's rating:
Bloodthirsty ruthless imperialist. Among other drawbacks, his conquest of Wales set back women's rights hundreds of years.
Kenji's rating:
Named "bloody Mary" with good reason: a murderous religious persecutor fond of burning at the stake
Kenji's rating:
Average listal rating (3 ratings) 4.3 IMDB Rating 0
Double wife killer, greedy megalomaniac who used church, state and marriages for his own ends.
Kenji's rating:
His negative portrayal through history has been well deserved.
Kenji's rating:
Selfish fascist. And contrary to public perception, Mrs Simpson regretted leaving her pressurized husband for him. Fortunately he wasn't on the throne long.
Kenji's rating:
Average listal rating (1 ratings) 2 IMDB Rating 0
Notoriously extravagant waster as prince and regent, and irresponsible as king.
Kenji's rating:
Long romanticised as a brave warrior, and still is in an age of Islamophobia. He spent very little time in England, which he simply used as a means to raise money for his life in France and crusading which needlessly stirred up ongoing religious hatred. His ransom was also costly.
Kenji's rating:
Average listal rating (1 ratings) 2 IMDB Rating 0
Caused civil war with his "divine right of kings" arrogance
Kenji's rating:
Kenji's rating:
He may have won a decisive battle and enforced some order, but he did have a lot of blood on his hands
Kenji's rating:
Kenji's rating:
Ridiculously overrated. She may have reigned a long time in an age of great scientific progress, but she was an awfully selfish reactionary and oppressive parent. And ruling over a great empire does not a great person make.
Kenji's rating:
Average listal rating (1 ratings) 3 IMDB Rating 0
Kenji's rating:

Where to stop? Bad royal rulers have been the norm. Tyrants, mass murderers, ruthless imperialists, paedophiles, fascists, arrogant snobs, rapists, pillagers, psychopaths, thieves... a line of selfish, greedy, corrupt individuals with more concern for power than sense and decency.

Some other top contenders: Edward IV, James I, William III (for what he did in Ireland), George III

All "history" is distortion: this is just my subjective viewpoint
