Second on the list was Elvis Presley, who earned a reported $55 million during the past year, with earnings set to reportedly increase as the Authentic Brand Group, who own the rights to Presley, plan to produce a Presley hologram too.

Cartoonist Charles Schulz is 3rd with $40 million, with Hollywood icon Elizabeth Taylor fourth with earnings of $25 million.

Reggae legend Bob Marley rounds out the top 5 with $20 million.
