Top 10 Most Cruelest Rulers Of All Time

1. Mao Tse Tung

Although Chinese population doubled from 550 million to 900 million under his rule, Mao Tse Tung were responsible for the death of many millions of them. Early during his rule, several landlords were picked from each village and executed, resulting to the death of 700,000 people. In addition, 6 million were sent to forced labor camps and many perished.

A few years later, famine and other consequences of the Great Leap Forward has caused the death between 15 and 46 million peoples. The suffering of the Chinese people didn’t end there; the Cultural Revolution in the 1960’s directly affected more than 100 million people.
