Question ID: 479032
I'm doing an art project regarding good and evil. I need a list of
notoriosly evil people, such as Hitler.
But I'm having problem researching, coz it can get into some sensitive
issue. For ex,in US, Bin Laden may be obviously on the list, but
people in other region of the world may not think so. So I think I
need a list of 50 controversial people having a tendancy toward evil.
This person can be entertainer, political figures, or any field, as
long as he is famous and can be recognized by most people, thanks.

I have compiled this list of evil people based on sources I know on
the Internet. I have also listed here websites where you can find

Idi Amin
Ion Antonescu 
Prince Yasuhiko Asaka 
Nicolae Ceausescu
The Duvaliers
Francisco Franco 
Adolf Hilter

This Crime Library website has excellent lists of 'evil' people. Look
at the menu on the left, and you will find lists of other lesser-known
people, such as those in the "Killers from History" menu selection.

Others off the top off my head:
King Louis XVI
Jim Jones (People's Temple)
David Koresh
Heinrich Himmler
Roman Emperor Caligula
King Herod of Jesus' time
Kenneth Lay and Andrew Fastow (of the Enron)
Josef Mengele (Nazi scientist who experimented on Jews)
Edward Teach (Blackbeard the Pirate)
Elizabeth Bathory (bathed in young maidens' blood)

Christian article mentioning Hetty Green
Hetty Green - the greatest miser in history

Barnes & - The Most Evil Men and Women in History:
- Might be useful in case you want to buy a book.

Google Search terms and strategy:
greatest miser history
cruel people history
evil people history
most notorious people history

Most of the sources here are known by me. 

I hope this has been a helpful answer. If you need something
clarified, or have a problem with the answer, do please post a Request

I was most interested in your question and project so I did a little
searching and I rank this so called hero, singer and American author
as one of the most evil people in America today. Here is just one of
the many articles published about him and his opinions. Thank you for
the chance to expose him to true Christians.
