Top Ten Most Famous Peoplecedman15
The Top Ten
Jesus should always be number one he died for us on the cross he went through so much pain and yet he is 3rd on the list I don't really think this makes any kind of sense any smart person would put him as #1 because he is #1. Reality check you live in a world full of Jesus
He's a good person, but that doesn't mean he's the most famous, may I remind you. - MaxAurelius
Who hasn't heard of Jesus? Very well known bloke, think he was in a book as well.
What's Hitler doing on a list of famous people (as opposed to infamous or notorious people)?
Why Jesus here Jesus is god please show the famous humain not godV 847 Comments
who doesn't know mj? undoubtedly most famous!
Michael Jackson as time goes by more will discover what a creative genius and original mind this man was. More will understand his humanitarian efforts, his love of trees and this planet. His childlike qualities will be understood to be true and authentic. Perhaps a luminary. Certainly a man we loved to hear and loved to watch. A great dancer. A beautiful being. So glad to have lived during his time. He was all about love. Miss him dearly.
Man mj is just like... Hot / who on earth would not admit that he is just amazing, if someone saw his signature there would be a bloody mob just to touch it.
I come from china,my English is not very well,so if I make some grammer mistake,please forgive me.Thanks.I gonna tell you guys the truth that in china,he is really famous.Ninety percent people knew him,but if you ask chinese:Do you konw the beatles? or Do you know Elvis? They gonna tell you:Sorry,I don't know them. china has 1.4billion people,so,maybe I break beatles fans heart,but the truth is michael jackon is more famous than the beatles or Elvis.V 481 Comments
People ask why he is on this list but it IS the most famous not the most liked. Adolf Hitler is famous because everyone knows who he is! We have learnt about him amost every single year in school - ILostMyShoe
People that are well known and not liked are infamous not famous - ParasN2000
He is the man that gave life a meaning to Germany. His Era, and His legacy continue. He is to be admired for what he dared to do, even though, his enemies continuously mock, belittle and demonize him.
This man, should enter history, as not a Tyrant, but a man that has dared to do what was impossible, to fight the great powers, and achieve world status.
There is no reason to hate this man to be hated, other than stated "holocaust". And this Holocaust has gained notoriety for controversial claims.
Mostly propaganda at this point, the real numbers of the holocaust, are much less than the claims 6 million, who happen to be of mixed races and ethnicity.
Adolf Hitler has not signed a single paper that ordered the mass execution of any person, or any gassing of the sort. Leaving the who claim a dubious fabrication of his enemies.
Haters who see this man as the re-incarnation of Evil, especially from Germany should be expelled back to whence they came, because ...more
Untrue and devoid of intelligence. The real numbers climbed MUCH higher than 6 million. Adolf Hitler was a horrible man. - DWL24
If I went out and asked 1000 people over the age of 10 who Adolf Hitler was 99% would get it right. If I asked who Gandhi was, there wouldn't be as many right anwsers. My point has been made.
I voted Adolf Hitler because he is someone who's actions affected the world. I actually recognised all ten people here, but in the case of Jesus, and Buddha, they are religious figures and not everybody is a Christian or a Buddhist. - PadfootWave16V 177 Comments
He was a man ahead of his time... Had a heart for America and all people
You all do know lincoln only freed the slaves to save the union he didn't do it just cause he didn't support slavery he didn't even free all of them. He even wrote "If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone, I would also do that"
Anyone can relate to Lincoln. No matter who they are. In some way he has positively impacted the lives of all Americans for the past 150 years. He was great man but also just a man. He was humble and liked to tell dirty jokes. When I learn about him I can see myself in him. I think that is why he is so loved.
The man who killed slaveryV 35 Comments
Albert Einstein was a great person.. He even preferred death over surgery because he didn't want to have an artificial life.. That's something easy to say but its really brave
The greatest Physicist of all time!
He is an example for everyone

There is no god but Allah and hardhat Muhammad saw is his servant and messenger.
He is the best of best because he gave his life for serving humanity. He married widows, loved children, granted respect to women, married a 9 years old girl but treated her like his daughter until she became a mature. He never did anything personally. Only did and told what was right and ordered by Allah. But still has fear of burning in hell, care for his people and humanity more than his own children.
I think, Muhammad PBUH and Isa (Jesus) RA both are equally famous personalities on earth. MJ can't be compared with the messengers and prophets of GOD... MJ is famous only where T.V. or radio available but Muhammad PBUH and Jesus RA both are well known by people even in those places where Media is not available...
As my point of view, Muhammad PBUH and Jesus RA are equally famous because every Muslim believe on Jesus RA as He is the 1 of prophets of GOD and every Christian knows Muhammad PBUH as Messenger of Islam... And both Muhammad PBUH and Jesus RA are well known is Jews' Hindus' Sikhs and many other religions...

Elvis was a artist that had no boundaries, the things he could have done and perform all over the world would have been second to none, it's so sad he didn't have or take the opportunity to do more, but what he did do was outstanding, and the world is a sadder place with out him!
I would have to argue that throughout my travels, anytime I say I'm from Tennessee I am immediately asked about Elvis no matter where in the world I am. I have to also say that Jack Daniels is also brought up quite a bit.
Elvis had been the most famous person living for a couple of decades, up until his death in 1977. No-one disputed it when he was alive. Now, years later, people tend to want to put their own twist on things.

Muhammad Ali Made a Great Decision to Be a Muslim. He was a Great Boxer!
Wolpert summaries the profound effect that Jinnah had on the world:
Few individuals significantly alter the course of history. Fewer still modify the map of the world. Hardly anyone can be credited with creating a nation-state. Mohammad Ali Jinnah did all three.
He did not exactly have many choices, being from a dirt poor background, boxing was one way to escape his seeming destiny
Muhammad Ali is a role model to all!V 65 Comments
SHE HAS DONE GREAT THINGS TO CHANGE THE WORLD. SHE HELPS OTHERS IN NEED AND I THINK SHE IS A REALLY INSPIRING AND TALENTED YOUNG WOMAN. HELP VOTE SO SHE COULD BE ON TOP OF THE LIST.
She is still the most famous and incredible lady in the world even after so many years of her death...
Princess Diana was an amazing person, she was extremely beautiful both on the inside and the outside. Whatever she did for the world in the limited amount of time she had was incredible. Had she lived long enough, she'd have done a lot of things for good. She is still the Queen of our hearts and shall always continue to be. PLEASE VOTE FOR DIANA
She is great! Her soul was great! She has sone so much for everyone and she is probably the only queen of hearts and I hope she rests in peaceV 64 Comments
One of the greats. If he wasn't around we wouldn't have cars, bikes, planes and helicopters. He achieved so many things and did so many things. He also made the most amazing painting the mon alias. What a star. He did so many things and he was born in the 1400s and people still remember him.
I think he was great person#I respect him
The very first Renaissance man. Had the world regarded him as a hero much like Jesus Christ, we may be better off today.
Nice painter, although not famous enough to be in top ten.V 42 Comments
I love mahatma gandhi.. Proud of be Indian...
No one can replace The "Great soul karamchand Gandhi". He was an icon of Non -violence, Perseverance, Strength and equality. We should proud that we had the gandhi. He was the man proved the proverb "No pain No gain".
There is no one, ever substitute for him...
Who have voted others for above 10 and bw 5 are damn wrong,because it does mean that they are famous in westren nations they need not be famous all over,so
Gandhi definitely deserves higher place
Martin Luther King Jr is a great person. He did many great things. He fought for the black people. I love his I Have A Dream. speech. It makes me want to do something really great. He definitely is a awesome and great person in our world.
Martin Luther King JR is a man with a lot of hopes. He gave the 'I HAVE A DREAM" speech. He was a brave man who wanted to have a voice in freedom to all. He wanted to have part in a honorable acceptable world. Martin wanted to be the leader for the blacks. He was a good leader for his non violence beliefs for everyone. He wanted freedom, but not through violence.
I have a dream that he will be number one

Because a good guy and find a way for a people that hard to live, also find a way to peace a world from suffer, old, sick and dead. And I loved him so much And he failed to peace the world he did try his best to human life
Yeah in my opinion too!
Master was great, his teachings reflects human life as it is,
he was one of the first who sacrifice everything and work for human welfare even after attaining enlightenment.
And this list which puts even Michael Jackson & Adolf Hitler ahead of Master,
I don't understand.
Master explained the truth of the life and always emphasized reality.
Master never a taught single thing bad or unethical or dishonest or illogical or impractical in his teaching.

He was one of the greatest presidents of the United States and he was one of the founding fathers of the United States
Washington, the first president of the United States, was a fair, honest, brave, and kind man. He had led the Revolutionary War, and had the chance to become the king of the U.S.A. He was fair and honest, so he did not become the king because America had just fought a war to be independent from Kings and royalty. Why have a another king? Washington instead became a president. He was always brave and noble. I admire him for that. FACT: at Washingtons president ceremony, he forgot his Bible (which he needed) luckily, they were in a church and quickly found a substitute. Now they always bring an extra Bible to president ceremonies.
He did more for America has or ever will, and he certainly deserves to be on the list if Michael Jackson and Hitler of all people are.
He was the grate man - GatorBoyV 15 Comments
I honestly think a man with such qualities and respect to human kind. Being known in every country should be number 1
He is undoubtedly the world's most respected icon and is Globally recognised for his personal well-being and honour to human kind.
Think Nelson should be number 1
He should be number 3V 49 Comments
Even if people like Obama, there's no arguing against the fact that he's done nothing good at all for America.
Barack will always be top he is loved by the world a wonderful president, he was president at the best time for what this world was going through.
He is the best president the worlds ever seen and Donald trump should give up he isn't gonna win to be president no one likes him I'm surprised he's married
So he's better than Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, and Tomas Jefferson I think not! - harr4
Dear comment 2,
LOL I feel bad for you evidently you have a brain of a walnut
Above all presidents to serve in office, Franklin Delano Roosevelt is considered the best. A man coming into the White House, later elected another 3 times, took on America's greatest challenge in the World's darkest time. We all looked up to him.
He is so inspirational amazing how he was trying so hard
Best President - SoldierOfFortune
Lead us during ww2
All you need is love, GIVE PEACE A CHANCE!
He Is The Most Awesome Person In The World... Plus He Can Sing That Makes Him Awesome! I Personaly Think He Is The Best Singer In The World! Have Fun John Lennon! Keep Up The Good Work!
John Lennon is the lead singer of the most famous band ever "The Beatles" and he also was a singer by himself and was a huge success. He is so amazing.
One of the most Phenomenal human beings to ever walk this planet. He has contributed so much that is good, hopeful, cutting edge and forward thinking. We lost so much when he died but his music, charity and compassion will always live on!V 26 Comments
Not saying he's a good person, I absolutely despise him. Terrible to women and other races as well as just being downright stupid. We need a better president or this country will just collapse! (This is coming from a 12 year old, guys. Just an FYI) But he should be higher, most people know of him. Though he is outrageous, don't get me wrong.
Will end up as #1 sooner or later.
Although he isn't very liked, he is known all across the world. America has relations with many countries, and this is why Donald Trump's speeches and persona are well known to people outside of the US.

Doesn't everyone know caesar?
at least in europe he should definitely be in the top 5
He's a super important part of history if he didn't free the Jews from Egypt then Christianity would never have been founded so he should be at 1 or 2
He saved gods people so I say he should be at LEAST number 2 on the list
Prophet Moses... he has to be number 2
#2 if that many people know about Jesus more should know about Moses or at least equal if you're Jewish do you call Jesus by name or what hmm so many questions so few answersV 20 Comments
One day was #1
I can't believe that Justin.B just ranked before Chingiss Khaan who was owning half of world.
He was a very spiritual person, great philosopher and Great scientist also. He gave message of equality and believe in humanity. He raised his voice to uplift the status of women. He wrote,"why we should think bad about woman who gives birth to Kings".
He was founder of "Sikhism" religion. I would like to mention few lines of his great writings. He said,"God is one, his name is true, he is a being to do everything in this world, he is fearless and enemy to none. He is timeless and beyond birth and death. He can be known as Guru's grace. Meditate on his name. He was ture before creation. He was true when ages commenced. He is true now. He will always be true."
The most advanced and knowledgeable prophet. Spoke out for female liberation and rights before anyone else. Founder of the Sikh religion. Founder of the Provision of Free Food to the needy. He emphasized on changing oneself rather trying to change the world.
Go and see his hand print in solid rock this is superhuman study read Sikh missionary society website you all have A Sikh sitting within oneself

William Shakespeare changed the world forever. He is a big part in world literature, and he invented a bunch of words we use today, such as "fashionable", "bedroom", "useful", "mimic", "successful", and much more. He is pretty much the greatest poet, play writer and actor in history. Shakespeare deserves to be higher up this list.
Many of his works are underrated. He was a fantastically talented man and writer.
I don't really like Romeo and Juliet because I had to read it in English Class. :(
Should be higher up the list. But at least he's in it.V 4 Comments

Love love love him
Funny as anything
Really Jim Carrey
In 10,000 years, not a single other person on this list will be remembered, except for the name of the first human being to leave the planet and walk on another world; Neil Armstrong.
He is awesome and by the way he is not the first man on the moon he is the first American astronaut on the moon. The first man was Russian. You guys should read up on facts.
So I tried to read up on facts... 5 minutes later it appears that Armstrong was the first man on the moon. Literally, on the moon. He was the first to walk on the moon. Seems like Russia was the first to land on or hit the moon. All of it is amazing to me and just thought I would look up the info per another commenter's suggestion.
He was the first celebrity I ever knew the name of. - torsja29V 6 Comments

Like Henry Ford and many other wealthy Americans, Disney was a fascist and a supporter of Adolf Hitler.

He might not be that famous but he has brought joy to so people. That is why I voted for him.V 6 Comments
How can you say bad things about Beyonce @PositronWildhawk? Do you not understand that she is known by most of the people in the world oh and did I forget to mention, she is LOVED by them as well?! Who are you loved by? No one..
Her music may not be the best and the most outstanding nowadays but, no one can claim that she doesn't have talent. After all - she IS queen and she is definitely famous enough to be on this list, and I think she should be higher up the list.
This is Beyonce. She should be way higher on the list; I mean, come on. She is literally known as the QUEEN. SHE SIS CALLED QUEEN BEY FOR A REASON

Caligula may be defined and evil and psychotic, but he is still one of the most famous people who ever lived. Almost everyone knows his name. And his bad reputation may or may not have been deserved. His reign started out good and he was loved by all. It wasn't until after he recovered from a serious illness that he turned into a madman. It's believed by many that the illness had an affect on him or that he suffered from epilepsy. Also, some of his supposed excesses do not appear in any contemporary accounts and were almost surely invented by Suetonius in his "Twelve Caesars" were was written almost 80 years later.
He was such a great soldier
Have you been to Grants farm?
Grafters and thieves spoiled his reputation
Meryl's the best! No question!
