Tough choice between Sauron, Ming and one from The Lion King ( forgot name).
FYC: real ones like Caligula, Nero, Harod, Ivan the terrible, and Vlad The Impaler (A.K.A. Dracula). They all were done in movies.
These two for Nero from "Quo Vadis" 1951 http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0043949/m... and http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0043949/m...

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0051790/m... For Czar Ivan IV (The Terrible) if you choose him.

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0080491/m... For Caligula if you choose him. The movie it came from is almost legitimatized porn. But in real life, the man was insane, immoral and cruel.

Herod Antipas is easy to find. I had mis-spelled his name in the earlier post.

Ramsay Bolton was never a king, only a lord.

You haven't written any name in entry #22.

And I think the title sounds better as: Evil Kings

I don't think the Sheriff of Nottingham was a king, even though he wanted to be.

I don't like that you call Roman emperors kings.

I guess emperors and kings are pretty different. An emperor is the ruler of an empire which could include many kingdoms, and a king rules a smaller kingdom that may be part of an empire.

So perhaps Roman emperors should be removed from the list.

Peter, they were basically the same thing as the emperor starts acting on their own despite the senate's demands or votes after Julius Caesar was declared a living God and was allowed to remain emperor until his death "dictator in perpetuity" - that marked the beginning of the fall of the senate. When Augustus Caesar claimed sole power to the empire, he started the cult of personality. After him, all the rest of the Roman emperors were of the Caesar bloodline and ruled until their deaths. How different is that from the word "King" eventhough the romans hated the word, they essentially had one, despite how they orginnal chosen their emperors at the start through election. Both Nero and Caligula were essentially kings in the point that, at that time, they could hold that position until death because the Roman senate had empire ceased holding periodic elections to elect a new emperor.

Perhaps writing "kings and emperors" in the intro would help.

I'm sorry for the poor grammar. Jessica and Peter.
Besides if you remove the Roman emperors, you got to remove Ming too because he was an emperor too.

A second besides: Are we not forgetting someone from "Star Wars: The Return of The Jedi"? The Emperor?
