Russian "Blood Countess" Darya Nikolayevna Saltykova was the very personification of the statement: "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned." She was spurned by a lover who left her for a younger woman and she chose to take it out on other women and young girls who she now saw as competition. She was a noblewoman from Moscow, Russia, whose servants bore the brunt of her murderous rage. Even when she wanted to punish a man, she murdered the women and girls in his life. During the 18th century, Saltykova as she came to be known enjoyed torturing and abusing the serfs on her estate until she had killed more than 100. Because of her social status, she was able to kill without punishment for years. When she finally was investigated, it took six additional years for her to be brought to justice.
