20 Of The Deadliest Women Who Ever Lived

We often hear about the crazed killers of the world and of history, but we don’t often focus all that much attention on the crazed killers of the world who were women. We tend to want to ignore those ladies as being an anomaly and so out of the norm that we don’t even talk about them. Those who ignore history are doomed to repeat it and that means we have to focus on these women because they are 20 of the deadliest women who ever lived. These are women who you would be encouraged to run away from if you were to meet them in a dark alley.

Elizabeth Bathory

Elizabeth Bathory’s story strikes some as something out of a horror movie. The woman is said to have killed anywhere from 80-600 young girls and bathed in their blood. The story goes that the Hungarian aristocrat believed she could achieve eternal youth by doing this.

Anna Marie Hahn

Anna Marie Hann came to America just after the turn of the 20th century. After meeting a man who eventually became her husband and having a child, Hahn began poisoning the elderly members of her community as a way to get their money. She was caught, convicted and sentenced to death and executed in 1937.

Belle Gunness

Belle Gunness might be the gold standard for Black Widow killers. Gunness is said to have killed more than 40 male suitors for their insurance money. She found these men simply by placing an ad in her local newspaper.

Aileen Wuornos

Aileen Wuornos killed seven different men, most of who she picked up as “Johns” when she was working as a prostitute. She was put to death for her murders in 2002.
