10. Geta Severan
Geta Severan was definitely one of those whose rivals wanted to erase from history. Geta wanted to divide his father’s Kingdom and both his brother and mother disagreed. So unlucky for Geta, that his brother got him killed. Not only him but his wife as well and Carcalla, the brother, removed his name and picture from everything. Mentioning his name was even forbidden but somehow he got a worthy public funeral, and he also found his way to our list now!
9. Nikolai Yezhov
Stalin’s communist government was as ruthless as you can possibly imagine. Assassinations were executed very frequently against members of opposing voices. Though Yezhov was a member of Stalin’s government, he did not survive being in opposition with him. He was ousted, killed and disgraced along with his entire family. His image was cut from the photos where he used to be next to Stalin and his name was no longer mentioned.
8. The Slovenian citizen!
This could very much be a movie’s name, but how should end? A good ending indeed! So the story goes like that; Slovenia won its independence from Yogoslavia in 1991. So far so good but then people started immigrating to the new country. Somehow the government had a logistical issue that needed to be solved as soon as possible. To keep the records neat, the government deleted 25,000 individual from its own citizens. Being a citizen in a country means being acknowledged as a human being with rights. It was not until twenty years later that the European Court ruled in their favor.
7. The uncle
Kim Jong-Un had his own uncle murdered and systematically erased from the North Korean history. When the man who was frequently invited in the media and the public life offensed Kim Jong-Un, he called him a traitor and had him murdered.
This queen led Egypt to one of its most peaceful and prosperous eras during the 20 years of her reign. When Thotmose I died she was the sole queen because Thotmose III was very young to reign. After she died, Thotmose III had her statues destroyed.

Elizabeth O’Farell was an accomplished nurse that had a lot to do during the Irish revolution. She was a strict republican and she was in favor of the revolution and a great supporter of it. She used to carry messages across the borders despite its being terribly dangerous. When she was captured a long with the leader Padraig Pearce, she stood behind him so that only her legs were visible. Along the years, the memorial picture was manipulated to remove her legs from the picture and it is still unknown why?!
Akhenaten was the first Egyptian Pharaoh to believe in the existence of only one God. Monotheism was a brand new concept for the Egyptian public. When his son Tutankamun succeeded, carvers went to his father’s tomb and carved all the gods and left no mention of Akhenaten!
2. Genghis Khan
The name of Genghis Khan brings about images of terror, war and mass murders. However, the name Altani Khan is brand new to most ears. She is the daughter of Genghis Khan and she had two sisters. All of them were somehow deleted from history!
1. The parson’s son
Jack Parson was one of the major scientisits whose knowledge and research benefited the US Army a lot in WWII. His knowledge also contributed to the foundation of, the then upcoming, NASA. Also deleted somehow from history books for opposing the streaming flow!
