Richard Dadd's case is well-known. A brilliant artist, he believed that he was controlled by the Egyptian God Osiris. It was Osiris who commanded Dadd to kill his father, with the result that Dadd's talent was confined to asylums for the rest of his life.
The story of Dadd's case is now included in 'Broadmoor Revealed'.
