Elizabeth Taylor - Elizabeth Taylor Tops Rich Dead Celebrities List
Elizabeth Taylor's 2011 estate auction has helped propel the late actress past pal Michael Jackson as this year's (12) Top-Earning Dead Celebrity.
The movie dame's estate bosses raked in $210 million (£131 million) in the past year to knock Jackson from number one on Forbes' annual list.
Taylor's estate worth was swelled by last December's (11) Christie's auction - the movie legend's jewellery, costumes and art work brought in over $180 million (£113 million).
The King of Pop comes in second on the new Forbes list with $145 million (£90.6 million) and Elvis Presley's $55 million (£34.4 million) puts him third.
Peanuts creator Charles Schulz and reggae legend Bob Marley round out the top five.
