The "sultan of Persia" didn't exist at the time. Most of Persia was ruled by the Kwaresmian Turkic Sultan. The only person that was rolled into a rug with his family was the Calif who ruled Baghdad and most of south and central Iraq.

Ghengis Khan did kill his older brother, but he did it because the family were starving, after being abandoned by the wolves clan, the brothers went out hunting every day, and brought home what they had gathered, to be shared by all the family, they then saw the older brother make a kill, and ate it all himself, which had been suspected by Ghengis, so he was killed, for endangering all the family who were starving, his mother and baby sister and the other brothers were all loosing weight, except the greedy selfish brother, Ghengis was a great man to his people, and still is today,

I'm surprised no one has mentioned the psychological horror show of dining with Stalin at his dacha outside Moscow. The most steeled men were almost driven to paranoid madness at these cruel events. The video host's examples are more physically torturous, but Stalin held court on supreme mental terror.

Lucretia: The Cersei Lannister of the ancient world.
To be fair the tickets to attend the Borgia's dinner parties helped bail out the national debt, Something that had largely gone untreated by the "Oh so pious" cardinals they also paid for building up hospitals and food handout to the poor along with orphanages. Whereas those cardinals had previously eaten quite well as peasants starved. Also, the popes family didn't only look on upon the orgy they actually judged performance. The Borgia's may have been ruthless and power hungry but they were better for the average peasant. Had Rodrigo succeeded in his ambitions Italy might not have been ruled by Austria and Spain for the next several hundred years. Lucrezia was also far saner than her brother, Cesare who was going mad due to syphilis and had killed Rodrigo's intended successor his nephew. Something Rodrigo appears to have never forgiven Cesare for.

Vlad the impaler didn't kill weekly, old or sickly men, he gathered all the known thiefs and criminals , and the nobbles that he kill were the one that betrayed the country for years, the nobbles didn't want to fight for Independence from the ottomans, they just wanted to take the money from poor peasants, keep part of the money and give the rest to the ottomans. Please revise this video! I'm know in doubt about other facts that you present.

Oh how the danes (anglo saxons) lament when the swedes arrived. And yes, The current queen is still a relative of Wilhelm and thus norse. UK has not had a native king since Vortigern (perhaps, depending on sources) Nooner speaks about what they did that was befeficial to the world. They abolished slavery in favor of thralldom in 600 ad as the first major counrty to do so. (thrall is indentured servants with salary that can eventually buy themselves free,,, but likely not.)

And Wessex in the 10th century covered a hell of a lot more than Glastonbury, Bristol, and Stonehenge; it was basically all of England south of the Humber by that point (including this little town called London), and it was in fact under the kings of Wessex that the kingdom of England came into existence.

In Vlad the Impala's case, one famous story claims after defeating an enemy army and impaling them, he then held a victory celebration among the dying victims. One guest constantly kept complaining about the stench, annoyed Vlad had the complaining guest impaled on a much higher stake, claiming it was so the stench wouldn't bother him.

Another historical figure I wouldn't want to have diner with would be Olga of Kiev, who ruled Kievan Russia from 954 till her death in 969. Apparently after a tribe called the Drevlians murdered her husband Igor in an attempt to force her to marry their leader, she is said to have invited them to a banquet where she got them completely drunk. Then as soon as they were all passed out and incapable of defending themselves, she then gave the signal to her soldiers to kill them all. In total, she had 5000 people murdered at this banquet. So yeah, I wouldn't have wanted to be at that little soiree for sure..
