What The Descendents Of Dictators Are Up To Today

You may hate members of your own family, finding them loathsome and annoying to be around, but imagine if your father was Muammar Gaddafi, Saddam Hussein or Slobodan Milošević, wouldn't you hate them more?

Sadly, many descendants of dictators don't hate their infamous parents at all, and some like Saddam's daughter Raghad Hussein feel their fascist relatives were actually misunderstood heroes.

Raghad has allegedly pledged allegiance to ISIS and still remembers Saddam fondly even though he ordered her husband Hussein Kamel al-Majid's execution in 1996. Today Raghad makes jewelry inspired by her dead father, dead husband and her home country Iraq, where she'll likely never be able to return.

Gaddafi's son Al-Saadi initially seemed to be turning his back on the family business of tyranny- he played football professionally for Libya and Perugia, partied like a celeb and even tried to break in to showbiz.

But when he approached Harvey Weinstein about a role he said "Libya would have to recognize Israel before he’d ever do any business with them", so Saadi went home and got involved in the Libyan civil war. His involvement landed him in a Libyan prison, where he is currently facing murder charges.

Slobodan's son Marko Milošević also loved to party like a celeb, using "his father's access to state revenue to fund a lavish lifestyle and establish a criminal network in Požarevac" while his father dealt with "the Kosovo problem"

Marko was once quoted as saying "guns are my passion", he once threatened a protestor with a chainsaw, and after his father's arrest he went on the lam to Russia, where he and his wife now run nightclubs in Moscow.
