There were many brutal devices were used in medieval ages to torture enemies and convicts on crimes. We can't even imagine most of those devices in the current age. But many people are tortured to death or more than death on those horrifying devices. Here we are listing the worst 10 of those medieval age torturing devices.

1 Spanish Donkey

A naked victim would be placed straddling the device as if sitting on a horse. Weights attached to their feet would then be pulled downward, splitting their bodies in half.

2 Head Crusher

As an executioner turned a hand crank, this frightening device would slowly cause a persons jaw and skull to shatter and eyes to pop out!

3 Cats Paw

Torturers used this mechanical ripping device to tear human flesh from victims bones. They would often die from infection from the unwashed, bacteria laden spikes.

4 The Rack

A victims limb were tied in ropes and then stretched by the turn of handles, causing bones alongside total arms and legs to detach from their bodies. Another version of this device years later included a bed of sharp rusted spikes.

5 Cradle Of Judas

During the Spanish Inquisition, a naked victims anus or vagina would be placed naked on top of this pointed pyramid and slowly lowered using ropes until the cavity was stretched and eventually impaled.

6 The Wheel

Torturers used The Wheel in various ways, sometimes the victim's limbs were bludgeoned by an iron bar while being tied, and at other times a fire was lit underneath the wheel while it slowly rotated, causing the body to burned repeatedly. Sometimes a victim was tied to the wheel while facing the sun and left to die to rot for the birds.

7 Crocodile Shears

This device looks scary, BUT it's even worse to know it was used to clamp down on a victims pen-is repeatedly, causing them to bleed to death.

8 Brazen Bull

Victims were put inside a large brass bull that sat above a blazing fire. They would die of severe burns or asphyxiation, and their screams inside the metal bull would be amplified to sound like a maddened ox.

9 Crocodile Tube

Torturers would place victim's face or feet OR sometimes both, inside this spiked tube after it was heated, mutilating the person and often killing them.

10 Knee Splitter

This device was designed to decimate a person's limbs with the number of multi-sized spikes, which came down on them. Sometimes the spikes were heated to make the experience more excruciatingly horrible.
