Leave it to the French to have the most Evil Serial Killer of all time

Gilles de Rais

Gilles de Montmorency-Laval (1404-1440) is considered to be a precursor to the modern serial killer. He was a Breton knight, a leader in the French army who fought alongside Joan of Arc. He was the first recorded serial killer accused and convicted of raping, torturing and ultimately murdering up to 200 children who were mainly boys in the 1430's.
In his youth he was married to an extremely wealthy heiress and lived a life of extravagance and debauchery. When his funds began to dwindle and he could no longer support his lifestyle he turned to alchemy. When that didn’t work, a certain Francisco Prelati who was an Italian priest, suggested that he offer children as human sacrifices to help him plead to a demon called “Baron” to turn common metals to gold.

Rais lured children mainly boys with the promise that all he wanted to do was play with them. Once he got them to his chateau Rais hung his victims with ropes from a hook to prevent the child from crying out loud, then he raped, tortured and masturbated over the child. Afterwards it was either Rais's cousin Gilles de Sillé or Gilles' bodyservants Poitou and Henriet who killed the child. The victims were killed by decapitation, cutting of their throats, dismemberment, or breaking of their necks with a stick. A short, thick, double-edged sword called a braquemard was kept at hand for the murders.
 According to Poitou, Rais disdained the victim’s sexual organs, and took “infinitely more pleasure in debauching himself in this manner…than in using their natural orifice, in the normal manner."

In his own confession, Gilles testified that “when the said children were dead, he kissed them and those who had the most handsome limbs and heads he held up to admire them, and had their bodies cruelly cut open and took delight at the sight of their inner organs; and very often when the children were dying he sat on their stomachs and took pleasure in seeing them die and laughed…”(Source)

Rais greatest pleasure of all was weltering in the childrens blood, his servants would stab the child in the jugular vein and let the blood flow over him while he sat in a bathtub. 

Some sources say that after Rais murdered a child he would feel so guilty that he would plead and pray to God for forgiveness but while he kneeled and prayed his servants burned the body and clothes of the victim in  Rais room in his fireplace and it is said he inhaled these fumes with delight. On 26 October Rais and his accomplices were executioned by hanging and burning.

On my mini-break while writting this blogpost i did this really cool quiz of " What kind of serial killer would you be?" this was my final result:

You're a planner. You'd carefully plot each murder, and carry it out methodically. You'll kill them in one location and move them to another later, and you'll study up your forensic science. The good news is, you're much harder to catch. You'll have a specific reason to kill. You'll target a specific group, like prostitutes or members of a minority, and you'll believe their deaths are justified on the grounds that you're "cleansing" the earth of that particular kind of people. You'll think you're helping society.
Uhm WOW okeeey good to know lol! here is the link to that quiz:

After that i did another "Which famous serial killer are you most like?" quiz, here were my results:

Charles Manson
You are Charles Manson...You are a free spirit who has very strong personal beliefs...You are a very convincing person which is why so many lost souls allowed themselves to be brainwashed by you...You are truly a deranged individual.
