The 15 Most Evil People In History Who Lived Rich
When it comes to the worst of the worst, we hope and expect that they spend their days hiding in a hole or living in squalor — at least until they are caught.

1. Kim Jong II
Kim Jong II was leader of North Korean from 1994 until 2011. His leadership placed North Korea under one of the most repressive governments in the world. The people of North Korea starved through a famine in the 1990’s while Kim Jong II wasted $300 million a year in personal expenses. He portrayed the people of North Korea as being happy and prosperous in order to push away Western intervention.
