10. Messalina Valeria
Born: before 20 AD
Died: 48 AD
Do you want to read a juicy story? The ancient gossip about scandalous women that really deserved a place in our list of most evil female rulers in history? Messalina Valeria was her name. She was the third wife of the Roman Emperor Claudius and pretty young at the time of their wedding in 38 AD. In the beginning, things were good between those two; she even bore him a daughter Octavia and a son Britannicus. The only problem was that in the spare time she was attending some strange parties, better known as orgies! She was a nymphomaniac. Yeah, you read it well. As the years were passing by, her insatiable appetite for men and enormous sexual desire messed up her conscious and judging. Messalina gained the reputation for promiscuity because of her lesions with more than 100 men and because she was spending evenings working at a local brothel, probably undisguised. By controlling her husband, who allegedly wasn’t aware of her many adulteries, she became very influential. Like a true predator, devious and greedy Messalina killed and exiled a great number of innocent people through her plots and conspiracies. One of them cost her life! In an attempt to overthrow her husband by marrying her lover Gaius Silius, she was killed by her husband’s centurion. As a revenge, heartbroken Claudius ordered a damnatio memoriae, so that her name would be removed from history. Being related to the Caligula and Nero, it’s not a mistake to say that insanity runs in the family, right?
