Top 10 Most Famous People of All Time

Updated on February 14, 2013

1. Jesus Christ

Lord/Savoir/prophet/son of God

2. Elvis Aron Presely


Great humanitarian and by far the greatest entertainer of all time. Elvis changed music and created a genre all on his own and without him there wouldn't be any of the great bands like The Beatles and The Stone because he was there inspiration. Elvis is basically like a Star to the Stars and Elvis is and always will be THE KING.

3. Mahatma Gandhi

Great non violence leader

4. The Beatles

Band from 1960-70

John and Paul very famous, Ringo and George not as well know. Probably the best band of all time.

5. Abraham Lincoln

16th U.S. president

responsible for winning the civil and also freeing the slaves

6. John F. Kennedy, Jr.

U.S. president

One of the most beloved presidents, assassinated back in 1963 and to this day we don't know what really happened. I believe he was taken out by men lead by LBJ and the U.S. Government because of "different interests" U.S. war which is a big money maker, JFK peace, withdrawal from Vietnam, and the best interest for the American people.

7. Michael Jackson

Entertainer/ Child Molester

Micheal Jackson was big but everything that made him really big was self promotion he is the SELF PROCLAIMED "King of Pop" and his recent spark in popularity is only because of his recent death in 2009. Also MJ was involved in 2 child abuse scandals in 1993 and again in 2005 and if he wasn't a millionaire he would be still alive but rotting in a jail cell.

8. Orpah Gail Winfrey

Talk Show Host/ T.V. personality

Oprah is maybe the most famous woman in the world and to make the top ten being African-American and a woman is really something.

9. Michael Jordan

NBA player/ T.V. guest star

Maybe the greatest basketball player ever in history and if not one of the bests, he is truly a legend.

10. The Rat Pack

Music/ comedy group

This group featured two of the greatest singers of all time Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin. It also featured Sammy Davis, Peter Lawford, and Joey Bishop who were very big at the time.

Honorable Mentions

John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, Bill Gates, Martin Luther King Jr., George Washington, Albert Einstein, Mohammad Ali, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Bob Dylan, Babe Ruth, Barack Hussein Obama
