When you have a great deal of power, you also have a great deal of responsibility! Who do you think the most evil rulers and cruellest tyrants in human history are? A ruler like Napoleon, who was responsible for the execution of tens of thousands of people? A President like George W. Bush, who has leveraged his wealth for political gain, resulting in an increase in global violence? Or a despot like Idi Amin, who toppled the sovereign and ruled with an iron fist over the country? Is it twentieth-century war mongers like Hitler and Stalin?

When it comes to ruling, not everyone is cut out for the job. Some kings stand the test of time, while others go down in history as the worst rulers. It's fascinating to discover what makes a king one of history's most despicable figures. In order to do so, we'll look at the top 5 most awful rulers of all time in this article:

The following are the five most despicable kings in history:

5. Queen Ranavalona I of Madagascar

She's also known as Madagascar's Mad Queen. Queen Ranavalona I of Madagascar, like Zedong, was responsible for the deaths of approximately one million people. In a week, Ranavalona was able to massacre 10,000 people. She pursued an isolationist policy, cutting her country's relations with other wealthy European countries and causing the country's demise. She governed like a tyrant for 33 years, while the people suffered from constant wars, sickness, and hard labour.

4. Ariel Sharon

This figure is well-known for enraging the French and fostering anti-minority attitudes. Sharon, Israel's prime minister and one of the country's top military strategists, is having a lot of problems right now.

3. Queen Mary I

Queen Mary I, also known as Bloody Mary, was one of history's most despicable monarchs. Her attempt to convert England to Roman Catholicism failed, resulting in the deaths of 300 Protestants. As a result, England is supposed to have lost territory to the French as a result of her. She is also regarded as one of the most horrible ladies in history.

2. George W. Bush

George W. Bush, the 43rd president of the United States, is often regarded as one of history's worst tyrants for a variety of reasons. His policies were to blame for the Great Recession. When Bush became president, he inherited an economy that had been bolstered by the previous administration, but he allowed it to collapse, resulting in job losses and deaths.

Apart from that, the majority of people believe he is mostly responsible for the current worldwide violence. His so-called "war on terrorism," which he started, resulted in the deaths of millions of people. In a 2010 Siena assessment of presidential academics, Bush was ranked as one of the country's five worst presidents. In 2009, C-SPAN ranked Bush first among the eight worst presidents.

1. Adolf Hitler

There is no doubt who will rank first among history's most vile dictators. It doesn't take a genius to figure out who it is: Adolf Hitler. He was Hitler's ruler, the starting point of World War II, a crucial figure in the Holocaust, and the most despised character in human history.

He was the sole perpetrator of the Holocaust, which resulted in the deaths of 5.5 million Jews. Hitler's Nazi rule also claimed the lives of 19.3 million civilians and prisoners of war. More than that, his military operations in Europe during the war killed 29 million people.
