Top 10 Worst Dictators In The World

The most famous dictators in the world were once simple people with dreams and aspirations. They were charismatic leaders of their people and political parties and then something happened – they wrote history of horror, despair, deaths, destroyed destinies of thousands of people around the world. Here are some of the most outrageous and most dangerous dictators during the history of human kind.


#1. Dracula

His name was Count Vlad the Third. He lived in Transylvania, today’s Romania, and is probably best known as an inspiration of the most famous vampire of today. But the truth about him was much worse than a few bites on the neck. He was such a brutal ruler. The prisoners during his time were executed in terrible ways, like being pressed on a stick; let their blood drain while wild beasts were gathering around them. It was believed that Vlad personally liked to drink human’s blood.

#2. Kim Jong Il

The recently deceased ruler of North Korea was responsible for keeping his people isolated from the entire world, making them believe that he is the ultimate ruler and that their country is the best in the world. People still live in misery, are not allowed to leave the country and the world remembers how they were forced to cry during his extravagant funeral. His grandson continues the same work as his grandfather.

#3. Vladimir Lenin

He still keeps the number one ruler who had so many attempts to be murdered. Lenin instituted the “Red Terror” also known as the systematic killing of millions of people, especially his fellows from his political party. He is still a synonym for a tyranny right next to Hitler.

#4. Saddam Hussein

The world still remembers the mass genocide against the Kurds, Shabaks, Assyrians and other people which were held under his institution. The final number of murdered people during his reign is nearly two million.

#5. Ismail Enver Pasha

This man was the leader of the Young Turk Revolution, but his power grew bigger as he led his country to the Balkan Wars and World War I. He wasn’t very skillful leader of his army, but he was responsible of the genocide of one and half Armenians and around one million people from other races.

#6. Nicholas II

He hated the Jews and had very dangerous ideas to put his Russian in order. During his reign three million people died. That’s how he got the nickname “Bloody Nicholas”.

#7. Joseph Stalin

When Lenin died in 1924, Stalin took his place and implemented government programs that were supposed to improve the situation in Russia. But his plans weren’t so great, because his economy made tens of millions of people starve to death. His brutality was shaped in the “Great Purge” which meant killing of everyone who would have opposed him or his way of governing.

#8. Mao Zedong

It took him only five years from the day he became the communist leader of China, to kill about five million people. The ones who remained alive during his reign were living in constant poverty and starvation. Nobody knows for sure how many of his enemies were executed.

#9. Nero

This Roman emperor was so influential and dangerous that when he wanted to get rid of a particular senator he would have just send him a letter in which he was ordering him to kill himself. If the person refused to do it, he knew that Nero would immediately send someone else to take away his life. He was making the life of his people impossible with the public reading of names of people who he wanted to get rid of, offering great prices to his citizens for committing the murder. When Nero died, Rome was celebrating his death as a national holiday.

#10. Adolf Hitler

A particular introduction about him isn’t necessary. The world still clearly remembers the genocide of 17 million people, including 6 millions of Jewish people, destroying and turning Germany into a scary place for living. He once was an artistic kid who never got to the School of Art in Vienna. The rest is a well known history.
