In Gemara Gittin 57b we find a story about Nebuzardan "taking revenge" for the murder of Zechariah Hanavi.

To make a long story short, after he literally slaughters thousands of Jewish men, women and children, he runs away and converts to Judaism.

My question is who and why would anyone convert such a man to Judaism?

    Perhaps the beis din that converted him didn't know who he was or maybe they were aware of the teshuva he had done – ezra Feb 23 '20 at 7:03

Even if someone has a bad past, the Torah almost always allowed the, to convert. (Unless you”re an amelakei). Anyways, this just comes to show Hashem’s infinite kindness and pity for sincere teshuvah
