Which Dictator Killed the Most People in History

Wow, I thought Stalin would be No. 1 but apparently that’s not at all the case. 1 blood drop represents 1 million souls, and someone here has got 78… (click to enlarge)

Which Dictator Killed the Most People in history


  1. Wow, I have never read so many misinformed, misspelled and uneducated responses to any post in a very very long time. I could not get through 20 replies. Who in the world has not heard of Chairman Mao. Someone said in a reply they have never heard of him. Do our schools not teach history anymore? Let alone spelling, grammar and literacy. I knew the numbers attributed to each of these sociopaths but the responses shocked me to my core.

  2. #WhitePrivilege or the #WhiteRace has killed more than any of them: Massacres during all their conquests to date…period!

    • Yea but he wasn’t a dictator, he was supreme overlord with all power over everyone in the majority of Asia

  3. Hiter: i killed 13 million people!
    Stalin: well i killed 17 million people!
    Mao: amateurs.
    Stalin or hitler, you decide: what did you say, punk?
    Mao: i said, amateurs.

  4. Not one person, but between 5-15 million people systematically slaughtered in the name of civilization…Native Americans at the hands of white men.

    • Soo right! Even it is soo sad. And not only in the whole Amerika (North and South) but also of other places, Australia and more. And what about the crusades, how many did they kill?

      • These are singular people who directly ordered the death, the entire European population is to blame for the death of the natives of the Americas, as most of the deaths were from sicknesses such as Typhoid Fever, the Flu, and the Bubonic Plague, and not directly from the massacre, war, and exploration.

    • Native american’s slaughtered systematically by the hands of conquistadors and settlers.
      As a white person from eastern europe (from a country which never had colonies), I’d ask you to please be kind and leave me the fuck out of your guilt-trip.

  5. We think that Hitler was the greatest killer in history. But he wasn’t. All historians “forgot” to tell us the truth. Why? Because the history are made by the winners.

    • you do know that literally all of them, aside from Belgium, lost, correct? “History is written by the winners”, and Communist China definitely was NOT a winner. So quit your bullshit

  6. I believe 78 million for Mao may be high. Ive heard it to be around 45 million. I remember from history class that he was known most for killing all the landlords. But I’m definitely not a history expert

    • Mao killed 45 milliom2 just during the “Great Leap Forward” alone. That’s probably what you’re thinking of. That was only a 5 year period of his nearly 30 year rule.

  7. Recently, I found out that, in my daughter’s Chinese course, Mao is mentioned twice : first with a quotation of a “wise” sentence of his, and secondly with the title of one of his writings.
    My question is : do you think it would be possible to have such references to Hitler in a German course ? Or course not ! Everyone would yell !
    So the question is : why the 18 millions victims of Hitler are more respected than the 78 millions of Mao ? Interesting question : try to answer and you will have a great deal of problems…

    • Exactly I agree with you 110% and this is the first time I have heard about this mao guy. But for a guy to kill 78 million people and basically be unnoticed by the world and idolized by his current country’s citizens is darn right outrageous. Espically when we have people in Germany getting sent to jail for saying the holocaust didn’t happen.

    • I think Hitler’s looked at more of as a killer whereas Mao didn’t directly kill people but his cultural revolution led to a lot of deaths.

      that may not be a very satisfying answer but also keep mind when Germany fell the Nazis were no longer able to shape the narrative.

      The China today is the same China from world war II, they can control the room narrative.

      • Best comment on the article Demi ? China has begun eulogising Marx again recently, despite Beijing’s current ideology being very corporatist. The party has evolved under different leaders, but the narrative has always been closely controlled.

    • Hitler killed people because of Ethnic Cleansing, Mao didn’t kill people directly or on purpose, he just didn’t stop it.
