Post the most brutal and violent rulers throughout history.
Starting with Vlad the Impaler.
he's a national hero in romania, he was a good lawful man, a great warrior and general betrayed by the hungarian asshole faggot mathias corvinus and his boyars
>start reading about based Vlad
>didn't even know he was raped probably multiple times a day every day when he was held by the Turks
Kinda makes sense he turned into a person who executed muslims by shoving giant wooden logs up their ass.
A savage leading a mob of savages.
When emperor Basil II of the Byzantine Empire defeated the Bulgars, he had his men blind most of the prisoners of war by taking their eyes out, only letting one (I think) keep a single eye so he could take them home. He got the nickname Bulgar Slayer from that.
He was also Hannibal, Attila the Hun and Oda Nobunaga, at least according to history scientists from /v/.
I like that movie.
He was a political hostage sent to Turkey from a young age because he was the son of Wallachia's (Romania's) ruler. When he eventually got sent back home he started violently cleaning things up and led violent but successful campaigns against the Turks when they eventually went to war. His Boyars (lords) were a bunch of treacherous bastards who ruined everything. Also he didn't get along with Hungary.
him and his brother where political prisoners, vlad was a total bad-ass tough
