Forbes: The Top Earning Dead Celebrities 2013

7 of 11

No. 4: Elizabeth Taylor

$25 million


Died: March 23, 2011

Age: 79

Cause: Heart Failure

Taylor’s earnings were $185 million higher last year because of a series of extremely successful auctions at Christie’s of the star's jewelry and art. Taylor, who embodies old-school Hollywood glamour, still earns from her fragrance, White Diamonds, which brought in $35 million in the U.S. alone in 2012, and smart investments in stock and real estate. Expect to see more licensing deals soon on things like high-end fashion and cosmetics.
