Worst Rulers is HARD. Usually rulers in stories are bad guys, so in theory they are all the worst. How do you find the worst of the worst?
Worst BEST heroes, now that is easy.
So, I tried to think of worst rulers who are worst for a specific reason.

The Knife of Never Letting Go
Obviously you’re a really crappy ruler when one entire gender literally dies on your watch.
My Lady Jane
Okay, Edward was a good person.
He had a kind heart.
He was just a really shitty King.
The Demon King
Queen Marianna isn’t a bad person. She didn’t necessarily have a bad heart. She was flighty and didn’t think about what affected her realm.
Estelle & Yousef
Technically Estelle and Yousef aren’t King and Queen, but they are Pack Leaders though. In that sense, they’re terrible. They use their constituents as a means to an end.
Extremely Upper Management
The House in the Cerulean Sea
Extremely Upper Management is the worst of the worst, because their evil affects only children. They act as though they are there for the prevention of abuse, but really they’re only about control.
