Queen of pop Madonna tops the list of most influential women EVER


Madonna has beaten the likes of Queen Elizabeth and Mary Mother of Jesus to be crowned the most influential female figure in history.

The head of the Commonwealth nations and the Mother of Christ, could not match the Queen of pop for clout according to a new analysis of online information database Wikipedia.

Whitney Houston came in at number 11 and Beyonce Knowles was 12.
Meanwhile Princess Diana came in at number 17 and Marilyn Monroe was ranked 19.
The study, which examined Wikipedia links, was conducted by Young Ho Eom at the University of Toulouse in France.
He applied Google PageRank algorithm which is used to determine how important webpages are and applied that to people, using Wikipedia to produce a list of history’s most influential.</b>

The analysis, which counts both incoming and outgoing links connected to the person online, spat out an overall list which was topped by Adolf Hitler, Michael Jackson and Madonna as the most influential people worldwide.

Jesus Christ came in at number 4 followed by musical maestros Beethoven and Mozart at 6 and 7 respectively.The top ten was rounded up by Pope Benedict XVI, Alexander the Great and Charles Darwin.
Irishmen Samuel Beckett, Oscar Wilde and James Joyce made an appearance on the global list but no Irish females ranked.
As Wikipedia is constantly evolving, the lists change ever so often. In 2010 when a similar analysis was conducted, Jesus came up on top followed by Napoleon and William Shakespeare.



2. Queen Elizabeth II


3. Mary Mother of Jesus


4. Queen Victoria


5. Agatha Christie

i'm sorry, but you can't act like hitler wasn't influential or didn't change humankind. wether it was for the better or worse, if he isn't influential i don't know who is.

Influential doesn't necessarily mean good though...

Damn, Queen Elizabeth looks beautiful in that pic.

Also, I loove Madonna. She's definitely one of my favorite female artists and I didn't even really grow up on her. The first album of hers that I bought was Music in 2000 and kind of worked backwards from there.

how her scheming kept Egypt alive till her death and she started a massive war and she if she didn't exist, Ceasar probably wouldn't have been assassinated changing history forever and if he was still killed, Marc Anthony wouldn't have screwed his career for her
