Am I the most hated Leader in CKII?
So after a series of untimely and altogether unprepared for deaths I eneded up playing the last character in my dynasty. Seeing as my alternative was to just quit and start over from scratch I decided to stick it out and hope for the best. So here is a list of my modifiers:

Ugly -20
Possessed -25
Foreigner -17
Too Many Held Duchies -10
Demesne too big -10
Tyrant -50
Excommunicated -30
Ruler is female -10
Heir is female -10
Small Feudal Tax -10
Medium Crown Authority -10

I have to say. Damn, Ugly is a lot worse than the -1 Diplomacy modifier makes it sound. -20 relations with everyone kind of forces you to be a tyrant.

I've won 3 excommunication wars as the Queen of "Skottland" against Norway, England, and the Welsh and made almost 2k gold off it... though I spent probably 1.2k just to win those wars. I've also crushed 2 different claims on the throne. Since everyone and I do mean everyone hates me I have all my vassals jailed.

It has actually been really fun holding onto the throne with a terrible leader. I just hope she has a son before she gets too old! She's almost 40 and all I have is two daughters which thankfully she was married matrilinearly.

I've had my fair share of bad rulers, but they have nothing on yours. Also, I like how "Ugly" is almost as bad as being possessed. They might need to to work on traits a bit more.

As an emperor i found out in the worst way possible that you can't just murder everyone who gets in your way. I had -100 with all of my vassals due to dishonourable (-90) and breaking fuedal vassal obligations (-250) an insurmountable failure on my part. The empire was torn apart shortly after.

I think ugly means shocking/grotesque. Not people you see everyday who happen not to be conventional attractive.

She would have to be depressed to be able to kill herself.

that explains why I have never been able to do it.... had a simular situation once (first heir after becoming king of ireland) where everybody had -100 opinion of me... :-( too many pretenders killed the game for me.
The most I have seen is where the BE revoked someones duchy a lot and kepty giving it back so -1600 revoked title granted title +1200

If you get hated just get your self killed by killing kings and remove your spymaster from his job so they get high chance to kill you.
