But his dirty and dark secrets are still grabbing limelight that shows how the late Libyan dictator kidnapped, raped and sexually abused thousands of women to fulfill his perverted desires.
In a book titled "Gaddafi's Harem: The Story of a Young Woman and the abuse of Power in Libya", written by acclaimed French journalist Annick Cojean, Gaddafi's dark side with women obsession has been revealed that says "thousands of young Libyan girls and women who were kidnapped from their schools, homes or places of work and forced to be Gaddafi's sex slaves".
Annick has thrown light on how women were abducted, imprisoned, raped and abused by the Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi during his brutal regime.
The first half of the sensational book contains the real sexual encounters of a woman, named Soraya, when she was just 15-year-old. It tells about how Gaddafi made her and others his "sex-slaves" and confined them.
Now, 22-year-old Soraya's story has disclosed that how Gaddafi's men stripped her and forced her to wear a G-string lingerie, with full make-up. She said that Gaddafi was lying naked on his bed and after a failed rape attempt, he called her a 'whore' and assaulted her so badly that she had to undergo a medical treatment.
For five years, she was confined to a small room in the basement of Tripoli base. There, she was given 'porn clips featuring Gaddafi having sex with other women' so that she could 'learn' from and was forcefully made to consume alcohol and drugs.
She has revealed that she was raped and beaten by Gaddafi many times but was finally let go home in 2009.
In the book, it is mentioned that Gaddafi used to call girls to his bedchamber day and night, where he allegedly drugged, beat, raped and sodomized them.
The book also reveals another story of a woman who was also raped, made pregnant and had the baby delivered in secret.
Gaddafi had a sexual encounter with ex-Miss India Pamella Bordes in London.
In 2011, Annick broke this story on Gaddafi and went to Tripoli to cover interviews of Gaddafi's victims. Then, she penned down a tell-all book on Gaddafi's sexual encounters with women.
Annick says, "He used sex to humiliate, punish and reward. Rape was a weapon of war and sex was a weapon of power for him".
The author further reveals that Gaddafi had his everyday prey and tried to woo performers, TV presenters, and wives of foreign dignitaries with gifts.
Cojean's book is now freely available in Libya, and in February, a group of demonstrators held copies of the book as they demanded a law to protect women who have been raped, the report added.
Gaddafi' sexual liasion with ex-Miss India
In an another revelation, it came to light that Gaddafi's all-female bodyguards group had an Indian connection. The 1982 Miss-India, Pamella Singh Choudhary aka Pamella Bordes from Haryana was one of the Amazonian guards in Gaddafi's regime, for a short duration of time.
After Gaddafi's death, it became an open secret that Gaddafi used to rape and enslave his female bodyguards.
Pamella served as Gaddafi's consort when he visited London. At that time, she was one of the most high-profile prostitutes in London and used to charge 10,000 pounds per night.
