The All-Time Worst People in History

List Criteria: Horrible, real (not fictional) people who have committed historical crimes. History judges them, and so do we.

The absolute worst people in history, ranked by the wisdom of the crowd. Who are the worst people in history? This list includes mass-murdering dictators, psychopathic serial killers, sociopathic religious leaders, insane politicians, deceptive political commentators, and annoying celebrities and Hollywood douchebags who make our eyes and ears bleed. Who are the worst people of all time? This human scum has incited genocide, executed ethnic cleansing, enslaved entire races of people, practiced cannibalism, orchestrated arbitrary homicide, brainwashed people who trusted them, yelled at film crew members, and been paid by TV studios to be awful.

Anyone can vote on this list of vile villains and evil lunatics, making it an accurate, real-time ranking of the world's worst people ever. Call out history's biggest scumbags, and see how your picks stack up against everyone else's. Because those who do not rank the worst people in history are doomed to repeat it. Or something like that.
