What’s the grave of the most famous person in the world?

That was the question that found my Cemetery Travel blog via a Google search. It’s not a question I’ve answered yet, so I turn to the vast hivemind of the internet for the answer.

Leave your vote for the most famous person’s grave in the comments below before May 6, 2012 — and you could win a copy of the Cemetery Travels Notebook.  Illustrated with photos from this blog to inspire your own cemetery explorations, the perfect-bound notebook has plenty of room for your own notes and ruminations.

You can see a sample of the Cemetery Travels Notebook here.

So tell me: what is the most famous person’s grave in the world?

ETA: The contest is closed.  The books came today and I contact the winners shortly.

Please feel free to continue to suggest the most famous person’s grave, though.  I am loving the responses.

You can order a copy of your own here: Cemetery Travels Notebook by Loren Rhoads
