2. Francois Ravaillac

Francois Ravaillac was an assassin who assassinated Henri IV of France. Of course, he has to get most severe treatment as possible for his deeds. He was tortured for days to get the names of his fellow assassins and the conspirators behind this assassination plot, but he denied that he had any co-conspirators and insisted that he acted alone.
