Michael Jackson is no longer the top-earning dead celebrity. Elizabeth Taylor has replaced him on top of the annual Forbes list. Taylor's estate raked in $210 million dollars in the past year. Most of the money came from auctions of her jewels, clothes, artwork and memorabilia. Jackson slips to second with $145 million. Elvis is third, with $55 million, followed by Charles Schulz and Bob Marley who are tied with $17 million. John Lennon's $12 million is good enough for sixth place. Marilyn Monroe is tied with Albert Einstein with $10 million. Dr. Seuss is in ninth place with $9 million. Steve McQueen and Bettie Page are tied for 10th with $8 million. Richard Rogers earned $6 million, a half million more than George Harrison.
