Italian dictator and former head of state; he held the title of “Il Duce” (English: The Leader) during his time of rule over Italy. He came into power in 1923 after he and his group of Blackshirt paramilitaries under the National Fascist Party initiated a coup in what became known as the March of Rome, leading to a bloodless transfer of power by the then-king of the Kingdom of Italy to Mussolini. Ruling his country over a totalitarian fascist dictatorship, he pursued an alliance with Nazi Germany and fought in World War 2 with the Axis Powers, but was soon forced to step down by the Italian King after the Allied Forces invaded the Italian mainland, later being rescued by German paratroopers and placed as the head of the new Italian Social Republic, a Nazi puppet regime that fought the Italian resistance and the Kingdom of Italy (which by now was affiliated with the Allies after Mussolini was forced to step down) during the Italian Civil War. He was later killed in 1945 by a communist partisan, and his dead body was publicly hanged upside down along with a few other notable fascists.

A crazy son-of-a-bitch that ruled the then Facist Italy from 1922-1945. He, his wife, his family and his generals were dragged through the streets of Italy in 1945, beaten, gutted, and hanged upside down. So a lesson to girls--If you marry a guy that turns into a dictator-divorce his ass!!
Benito Mussolini was a total ass!

Italian Dictator in the Italian peninsula during 1920's to mid 1940's. Before he established the party "Fascismo" he was a part of the Italian Socialist Party. After seeing Europe plunge into the Great War, the Socialist party was heavily against the war while Mussolini was inspired by it; his vision of spreading his ideals through war. He was kicked out of the party shortly after. He founded his party, the National Fascist Party of Italy. Soon after, Adolf Hitler followed in his footsteps. The era of fascism in Europe had begun, all due to some bald man with a wide jaw-line and a mad painter who didn't get accepted into art school.
Guy 1: Hey who is Benito Mussolini?
Guy 2: He was that bald guy with a thick jaw-line.
Guy 1: Didnt he commit horrible atrocities like Adolf Hitler?
Guy 2: Yeah, no. He almost lost to some bros with sticks.
