Edward Mordrake
Edward Mordrake was a 19th century English nobleman who had an extra   face on the back of his head. According to the story, the extra face   could neither eat nor speak, but it could laugh and cry. Edward begged   doctors to have his ‘devil twin’ removed, because, supposedly, it   whispered horrible things to him at night, but no doctor would attempt   it. He committed suicide at the age of 23 by poisoning himself because   he could no longer stand having to live with the face on the back of his   head.
