Weird History The Gruesome Story Of Elizabeth Báthory, History's Most Deranged Female Serial Killer  

Rebecca High

Elizabeth Bathory, a Hungarian countess born in the 16th century, is widely considered the most murderous woman in the world. This video shares a slice of her bloody story.

Married at 15 to a man who liked to torture his servants in horrific ways, Elizabeth was conditioned by a youth filled with violence and gruesome acts, such as the time she witnessed a public event in which a live horse was slit open so a person could be stuffed inside, then stitched it all back together until both horse and victim were dead.

Thus began Elizabeth's own murder spree, which spanned a sadistic career of abuse and torture, aimed especially at the young women in her service and others whom she encountered.
