Top 10 World’s Most Vicious Rulers in History

#7 Vlad TepesVlad Tepes

This Romanian (or at the time – Wallachian) Prince served as the inspiration for the famous vampire Dracula. In reality, he was a very cruel ruler and nothing less scary than the vampire. Vlad was nicknamed the Impaler due to his methods of handling people he didn’t like. His punishments included skinning, disembowelling, cutting people’s sexual organs and burying alive. It is said he gave strong resistance to the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire, Mehmed II, by refusing to pay taxes and killing over 50,000 Turks in his area.

  1. The omission of China’s Mao Tse-tung (60 million killed) and the Soviet Union’s Joseph Stalin (over 22 million killed) totally destroys the credibility of this list.

  2. You are kidding, Bush was a leader from a democratic country.
    He shouldn’t be on this list.
    The one who made this list should learn his history better.

  3. There is some question concerning Hitler actually dying as there was never any corroboration of his death other than hearsay. There is much evidence he was seen escaping through a monastery in Spain (eyewitness corroborration he was seen there) and that he made his way to Argentina by U-Boat, whilst making connections there to try to accumulate weapons to start over. There are also U.S. intelligence files tracking his movements. Also, interviews with Nazi officials at the Nuremburg trials told the court they got the idea of Eugenics from the Americans as there was a strong Eugenics movement through the 1930’s in the U.S. especially among the wealthy U.S. bankers who gave money to Germany at that time.
