Let’s talk about some terrible rulers to be found in literature!
#1 Joeffrey in ASOIAF
Was there ever a worse ruler than this one? Was there ever a literary character I hated more? No and no.
#2 Dolores Umbridge in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Dolores is one of the best literary villains in history. It’s really interesting how she is written and no matter how much JK Rowling has been annoying me in recent years, that was a good book. Dolores managed to pretty much ruin Hogwarts, so she definitely belongs on this list.
#3 The White Witch in TCON
The White Witch was so irritating and creepy. And what was up with that Turkish delight? It’s not even that good…
#4 Snow in THG
Talking about creepy people…
Snow in the Hunger Games books is really one to give you chills, he’s the kind of guy that haunts you in your dreams.
#5 Queen of Hearts in Alice in Wonderland
Off with their heads!
That certainly doesn’t scream responsible and good ruler, does it?
