William Hitler was the nephew of Adolf Hitler and served in the US Navy during World War II. I seem to remember a different last name too but I can't come up with it. If I'm right I will then Google it :)

Darth is correct
William Patrick "Willy" Stuart-Houston (né Hitler; 12 March 1911 – 14 July 1987) was a British nephew of Adolf Hitler who worked in Germany and later emigrated to America in 1939. Born to Adolf's brother, Alois Hitler, Jr. and his first wife, Bridget Dowling, in Liverpool, England, William Hitler later moved to Germany, but subsequently emigrated to the United States, where he served in the United States Navy in World War II.

I knew the different name I couldn't think of had a connection to Star Trek in some way! I just couldn't remember (nod)

Next round...

This 16/17th century ruler was rumored to bathe in (and sometimes even drink) the blood of their tortured victims (estimates range between 600-700 total victims).

We are on the right track...

While not a "queen" this person is considered to be the most prolific female serial killer in history.

Catherine The Great?

A good guess, but about 200 years too late!

Another snippet of info...

She was married at the age of 15. Her husband was away near constantly fighting wars. She spent her days with her witchcraft-practicing aunt, her devil-worshiping alchemist uncle, and her pedophile brother.

I am seriously not making this up!

sounds like a good making for a spooky adventure game. lol.
If not a queen then perhaps a countess or duchess or maybe that is just a title she was known for. something like the countess of blood.

You are very close, actually (nod)

Lucrezia Borgia?

Nope!

Another bit of info...

When authorities arrived to arrest her they found 1 dead girl, 1 dying girl, 1 wounded girl and many more young girls being held captive waiting for their turn to be tortured and murdered.

I knew who you meant from the very beginning but it took me a while to remember her name:

Countess Elisabeth Báthory aka "The blood Countess".
