In today’s series of the most evil people (Most Evil Man) that have ever lived, we are going to give you Ivan the Terrible!
Ivan the Terrible, or Ivan Vasilyevich, was born on August 25th, 1530, and almost from the moment of his birth, his life was destined to not be a happy one. Three years after his birth, his father died of infection- this was after all the 16th century and medical technology had barely advanced past the stage of rubbing feces into open wounds. To make matters worse, Muscovy itself was a significantly backwards land, while Europe was in full on Renaissance mode, Muscovy was caught in the vice-like grip of the Dark Ages. This would be a problem that plagued the Russian state until the 20th century, as it would fight over and over again to rise above its status as Europe’s backwater.
