Gilles de Rais of France (Child killer who killed more then 400)


Gilles served as a Commander in the Royal Army and fought wars for his country; his murdering career started post retirement from the army in 1434. He explained his insane actions in his own words stating “when his victims were dead, he use to kiss them and those who had the most handsome limbs he use to hold them up and admired them, and had their bodies cruelly cut open and took delight at the sight of their inner organs; and very often when the children were dying he sat on their stomachs and took pleasure in seeing them die and laughing at the same time”.
