20 Of The Deadliest Women Who Ever Lived

Julia Fazekas

Julia Fazekas might have been the first female kingpin of murderous crime. She led a group of Hungarian killers known as the “Angel Makers of Nagrev”.

Mary Tudor

Only one woman on this list has a much loved alcoholic drink named after her. Mary Tudor, otherwise known as “Blood Mary”. The queen had a relatively short reign over England after Henry VIII but it was long enough to have hundreds of people killed under the guise of them being “heretics”.
