    Vlad The Impailer’s body was never found because he was executed and his head was taken to the Ottoman king as a proof of his execution. Also, when Ottoman victory became inevitable, Vlad wrote letters to the Ottoman king, telling him that he could help the kind conquer his own country since he knows it very well, hoping to escape from capture and execution. These letters and their replies are in archive in both Ottoman archives in Turkey and Romanian archives. However, Romanian’s don’t like talking about this very much and even deny it. Some reasources say that Romanians went as far as burning and destroying their copies of the letters and agreements to avoid embarrassment.

    In MY opinion, this list shouldnt be numbered at all. Honestly, they’re all evil for different reasons. Except Vlad. He was cruel but he istableshed and protected Romania for I’m not sure how long but he most definetly shouldn’t be placed with Hitler.

    EITHER WAY. Let’s forget about rankings and numbers and just agree that they all were evil in their own ways. They all were hated and they ALL are DEAD. Whatever they did, It’s over and we shouldn’t be arguing this much about it. No disprespect to the victims intended, but we can’t change what happened.

    And we’re doing the same thing they did, just on a lesser scale. Reading this you should consider that we need to respect eachother and stop all this useless pointless fighting. It’s not going to change anything and honestly, I think that Stalin is the worst. He starved and tortured my relatives and forced them into cannibalism to survive.
    But that’s just my opinion.
    We all have one and it’s stupid to get this worked up over it.

    This would have been more helpful had you put it in the order of how many people they killed. Then you left some people like Pol Pot and Kin Jong Il. But you put some who aren’t rather famous so I give you credit.

    I think Stalin is worse than Hitler. In the Great Pruge, between 13 million died while only (only used relative) only 11 million people died. Stalin also had many other things in ehic ended in deaths

    Could everyone that’s complaining shut up, you guys are all complaining that what has been said doesn’t fit “YOUR” views, those can be totally different to the views of the person who wrote this. They wrote it on their views as well, even if you have the facts, you still need a way to organise it. They chose their way to organise it which again could be totally different to your views.

    Why is there ?ttila in this list? I do not think that he was more cruel, than Nero or Caligula. And to compare cruelty in different times really correctly? That cruelly now, thousand years back it was in order of things.

    The US have been making war under false pretenses for over 50 years.
    Depleted uranium, Napalm, Gas, Atomic bombs, Drones.. The US killed more civilians than any past dictators.

    Iraq may be the best example of the US crimes. Any of you nuts realize that Iraq is DESTROYED ? In Iraq MILLIONS of civilians died because of your war, teenagers are rapted in daylight for organ trafficking, iraqis average lifespan felt by 20 years and in some regions the soil is contaminated for billion of years by Uranium.

    Oh right the US are the good guys. So says the medias owned BY THEM.. Idiot.
    The US is the most evil empire on earth.
