Michael Jackson, the king of Pop, is No 1 in a list of dead celebrities who own enormous sums of money.

The second in the list is American singer and dancer, Elvis Presley, who died in 1977. However, his 2014 earnings were less than half of Jackson's at £34m.

He is followed by American cartoonist Charles Schultz at £25m and legendary actress Elizabeth Taylor at £16m.
