Worst Person or World Figure Of All Time?

Empress Wu would make Hitler look like an angel...

This woman was the only female emperor in China, when one became so powerful, they tend to become even more insecure about other people; she hired spies to kill off anyone that opposed her or could potentially be an obstacle for her.

There was a theory she killed her own infant daughter while she was still a concubine to frame the original empress in order to dethrone her.

I personally think that's really wicked...

I agree, not counting the soldiers killed in WW2, Hitler is directly responsible for the deaths of 6+ million jews. I'm not really sure the genocides in Africa or wherever whenever could ever have amounted to that many people.

There are plenty of historical figures just as bad, or worse, than Hitler.

Hitler just had access to more efficient technology.

I would add to the list of the truly horrible: King Leopold II of Belgium

He slaughtered and enslaved most of central Africa and the Congo, well after slavery was ended in the Americas. The region has never recovered from his actions and the modern day state of affairs in the region can still be directly attributed to him.

Worst Dictators? Adolf Hitler, Pol Pot, Joseph Stalin come to mind immediately. There were also some horrific Roman rulers like Nero, Caligula, Elagabulus who's list of horrors include rape and all manner of slaughter.

Worst human being? Let us not forget about the many serial killers, serial rapists, and other monsters throughout world history. I mean, how can you pick just one horrible human being.

By the way, winning this contest would be the worst honor of all time...

Valeriano "The Butcher" Weyler

This man wasn't called "The Butcher" for no reason and he's not recognized in the History of Real-Life Villains.


Food was scarce and famine and disease quickly swept through the camps. By 1898, one third of Cuba's population had been forcibly sent into the concentration camps. Over 400,000 Cubans died as a result of the Spanish Reconcentration Policy.

Running joke in the Civilization series.

As soon as nukes come online, Ghandi goes nuts. It was a bug in the first game and intentionally continued in later games.
