We can come up with a long list while formulating our collection of the most evil men in human history. Be that as it may, we can easily come up with a few men who stand out from the rest of this most hated league of men who had done great harm and committed the most atrocious acts against mankind. Here is our list of top 10 most wicked men.
1. Joseph Stalin
It was during the tenure of Joseph Stalin as the supreme leader of the Soviet Union’s Communist Party when Ukraine suffered the worst famine ever recorded. It was even considered by many as an act of genocide committed by the government of Stalin against the Ukrainians. During the reign of terror of Stalin an estimated 10 million to 60 million were reported to have been murdered.
2. Adolf Hitler
Adolf Hitler is perhaps the most hated man in all of our history. His political strategy of racial subjugation and territorial conquest plunged mankind to World War II which led to the deaths of millions of innocent people. This included the methodical genocide of some 6 million Jews during the dark ages of the Holocaust.
3. Ivan The Terrible
Ivan IV, who is more popularly known as Ivan the Terrible, was the first supreme ruler of Russia to have used the title of Tsar. In order to subjugate and sow fear in the hearts of his people, he would line up 500 to 1000 men daily. These innocent men were tortured and put to death while he and his son are watching.
4. Vlad Tepes
He is known as Vlad the Impaler. He is remembered for his extreme cruelty during his reign and was in fact the inspiration of Bram Stoker in his popular novel, Dracula. He has employed various types of torture which are strong testaments to the sufferings that his constituents went through while he was in power.
5. Pol Pot
Pol Pot was the evil leader of the Khmer Rouge and Cambodian prime minister for the period 1976-1979. The Khmer Rouge, with Pol Pot at the helm, has implemented an extreme method of agrarian communism that resulted to the death of over 2 million Cambodians.
