Who were the most evil people in history? If you keep reading this article you will get to know it. It is a very interesting topic and now Insider Monkey has published an article about it.The world’s history is full of certain horrible events connected with some people who will always be remembered for their evil actions and “creative” manners in which they tortured and punished people, especially those who disagreed with them. The interesting thing is that the evil people did not necessarily need to be the part of wars, but there were also some of them who operated and spread the fear even though the official war was not proclaimed. However, what bothered me most, even from the very early age is the question about whether people were born evil or they became so at some points of their life. That was a sort of puzzle for me, and I was unable to solve it. I was always wondering if people were born evil, how could we judge their nature and something they are not guilty of. On the other side, if they became evil at some point in their life, should we go deep into that issue and treat it from that perspective.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked two people from their list.
King John ruled England from 1199 to 1216, and probably all of the horrible adjectives that you can think of can be used to describe this greedy and malicious ruler. During his reign, England was probably in the worst possible position, impoverished and without the firm hand to rule. There is no specific data on the number of people killed during his reign, but it has been widely known that they lived in the horrible circumstances: they were starved to death and lived in awful conditions. He also started the war against France and the Barons, and thousands of people died in them.
Béla Kiss was a Hungarian serial killer who lived in the beginning of the 20th century. Although the number of people he killed is not that astonishing in comparison to some other, his ways of murdering made me put him on the list. Approximately, he killed 24 young women, and after killing them he would put their bodies in enormous metal drums to keep them as his property.
