These real-life figures were memorable because they were straight-up psychotic! Welcome to, and today we’re counting down our picks for the Top 10 Insane Rulers in History. For this list, we’re ranking some of the most violent, mentally unstable, and outright selfish royal leaders in history. We’re excluding non-royal dictators, such as Soviet leader Joseph Stalin and Nazi Führer Adolf Hitler as well as democratically elected politicians here. But don’t forget to check out our other lists of the Top 10 Conquerors and Top 10 Ruthless Dictators if you’re looking for that kind of thing!
