    I would have mentioned Bram Stoker, he's more famous than most on this list. He lived in obscurity when alive. But after his death that his novel Dracula was really discovered by the masses and launched him into the stratosphere. They even have awards named after him now.

    Anyone else find it funny that a guy named "Lovecraft" wrote horror stories?
    Not that writers have to center their creations around their names, but come on--if Lovecraft isn't the perfect name for an author who pens romance tales of all genres, I don't know what is!

    Really good list, but maybe Democritus should be on here too. He was a chemist who believed that everything could be broken down into unbreakable atoms of a particular element, but was never famous because Aristotle instead supported a chemist who believed everything was broken down into earth, wind, water, and fire

    At first they say "people who became famous because of their death dont count" but if Anne Frank didn´t die that early she wouldn´t have become famous...

    My friend and I watched this and she said: "Wait!...Where's Harvey Milk?" - Which, is a fair point to make. Yes, Harvey could be called "famous" back then for being the first openly gay man to have any source of legal power in the state of California, BUT after he died, he became a living legend! Honored to his day, people know him now because, after his death, so much attention was brought to him because of how much he inspired many upon many people to stand up and counteract the oppressiveness of not just the state of California, but the entire country at the time, and for being one of the many well-known LGBT activists, if not THE most well know, and also for being tragically shot down. His legacy easily outshines him before his demise.
