This will be a very controversial list because more often than not, everyone has at least a few individuals around them who love them to bits, regardless of how terrible other people find them to be. Even the worst people you can imagine have family or friends who look up to them as heroes because, whether we believe it or not, love covers a multitude of sins.
Therefore, the people who will appear on this list as "The Worst People in History" have people who see them in a totally different light and we can't ignore that. However, these people are here for serious crimes that they committed - crimes such as mass murder, rape, and the like.
A large percentage of the people appearing here are those who once held the highest office in their countries, a period during which they performed most of their heinous crimes. Since these men were dictators and rulers of huge territories, most of them thought that they were invincible and that they could get away with anything.
Some of these men faced justice before they died, while others died without receiving a just punishment for their crimes. The smaller percentage of those who were just ordinary citizens here are guilty of the worst crimes imaginable, and they truly deserve to be here.
The interesting thing about this list is that the characters here had some very inspiring quotes - quotes that you would have a hard time believing came from them. Here are 15 inspirational quotes from the worst people in history. Which of these quotes, in your opinion, sound too good to come from these men?
15 "Never Interrupt Your Enemy When He Is Making A Mistake" – Napoleon Bonaparte
14 "As Long As You Have Love In Your Heart, You'll Never Be Alone" – Charles Manson
13 "If We Knew The Meaning Of Everything That Is Happening To Us, Then There Would Be No Meaning" – Idi Amin
12 "Countless Millions Who Have Walked This Earth Before Us Have Gone Through This, So This Is Just An Experience We All Share" - Ted Bundy

1 "I Call On You Not To Hate, Because Hate Does Not Leave Space For A Person To Be Fair And It Makes You Blind And Closes All Doors Of Thinking" – Saddam Hussein
Saddam Hussein is one of those people whose memory sparks different emotions from different people. To Iraqis and Islamic extremists, he was a great president thanks to his opposition to the United States and his attacks on Israel, but to most other people he was just a ruthless dictator who had no regard for life. Saddam was believed to have killed at least 250,000 people during his reign as the president of Iraq, a fete only one of the worst people in history can achieve. The above quote seems as if it can never have a relationship with Saddam Hussein, since to most people, he hated the Americans, the Israelis, and everyone else who did not agree with his dictatorial ways.
