30 Most Unhinged Leaders in History

30 Most Unhinged Leaders in History. Nowadays, you look at the news and see leaders that seem a little ridiculous. Well, actually, a few of them seem more than “a little” ridiculous. We have full movies about how crazy some emperors and supreme leaders are (The Interview, just to name one). While hilarious, they don’t compare to leaders of the past. A long time ago, rulers could do whatever they wanted, whenever they wanted, and no one would bat an eye. That included killing whoever just because they happened to be passing by. That actually happened with some kings!

There are always incredibly violent leaders. While that’s crazy, they’re a dime a dozen. It seems like the role attracts those who just want to harm people in any way they can think, but they’re not all like that. Sometimes, the rulers are mentally unstable in other ways. For example, have you ever heard of someone that thought they were glass? You’d think this was rare, but two royals had this disorder, one of which was a king!

Today, we’re going to go over those people. These rulers had strange delusions and thoughts, and no one spoke up to say otherwise. Why would you? You could lose your head! No, these leaders were left to their own devices, and it certainly shows. These 20 leaders aren’t ones you want to have in charge of your country!
