There are many such women in history, who have become famous all over the world for some reason. Although people usually get famous for good works, but today we are going to tell you about a woman who was known for her poignancy. She was widowed at an early age, but the face she faced after that was very frightening. Hardly people forget him. The name of this woman was Darya Nikolayevna Saltykova. Born in 1730, Saltykova was the daughter-in-law of a wealthy family in Russia. Her marriage had taken place for a few years now that for some reason her husband died in the year 1755. At that time, Saltykova was just 25 years old. After her husband's death, she got a large estate and more than 600 servants as an inheritance, with which she started living a life of luxury.
It is said that Nikolayevna Saltykova had become the richest widow of Moscow at the time with her immense wealth. Before the death of her husband, she was considered a very religious and compassionate woman, but after that there was a change in her, which crossed all the limits of barbarity and the reason behind this change is considered to be love affair.
Actually, Saltykova began to feel very lonely after her husband's death. Meanwhile, he got acquainted with a man and later fell in love with both, but one day Saltykova came to know that her lover had a relationship with another woman from whom he had secretly married. She was so shocked by this news that she angrily hit her lover so much that he became half dead. Although somehow his life was saved. After this, she started venting her anger on her female servants.
Let us tell that Saltykova's barbarity increased so much that she started showing cruelty to the girls and pregnant women as well. She would beat their bones or pour boiling water on their body. Even if this does not fill my mind, she would have beaten him to death. It is said that by doing this he committed more than 100 murders. Saltykova was arrested in 1762. He was found guilty of killing 38 girls. Although 138 suspicious deaths were confirmed in the investigation, evidence of all was not found. Now since there was no provision of 'death penalty' in Russia at that time, Saltykova was sentenced to life imprisonment. He was kept in a dark room with chains. There was not even a window in that room. She remained imprisoned in the room for nearly 11 years, after which she was shifted to another place, where she died on 27 December 1801 at the age of 71.
