Rat Kings are mythological creatures found in European folklore.

Rat kings are composite organisms made up of rats whose tails have become entangled. According to popular belief, rat kings are psychic and can control other rats. They are generally believed to be omens of ill-fortune.


Real rat kings are occasionally found, but probably do not survive long in the wild. No one knows how their tails get tangled, but it is believed to occur when they get crowded into small areas. They are generally found dead.
