    How Jesus is most famous person in history ... and Cameron is only 1,483rd, according to internet searches

    • Figures are ranked according to opinions expressed on the internet
    • Algorithm predicts how important people will remain 200 years after death
    • Highest ranked Briton on the list is William Shakespeare
    • Software developed by computer experts Steven Skiena and Charles Walker

    Jesus is the most important person history, according to a new internet search programme that ranks Napoleon second and Mohammed third.

    The software, developed in the US, scours the internet for opinions expressed about famous people and uses a special algorithm to predict how important they will remain 200 years after their death.

    And it has thrown up some unusual and potentially embarrassing results with Prime Minister David Cameron all the way down in 1,483rd place.

    Jesus is the most famous person in history according to a software programme that scours the internet to rank people's importance

    The highest ranked Briton on the list is William Shakespeare in fourth place, who comes above US presidents Abraham Lincoln (fifth) and George Washington (sixth).

    Adolf Hitler is ranked at number seven, Aristotle at eight, while Alexander the Great at nine and another US president Thomas Jefferson help make up the top 10.

    Kings and Queens of England rank highly with Henry VIII in 11th place, Elizabeth I in 13th, Queen Victoria in 16th and Charles I in 39th, although Oliver Cromwell, the leader of the short-lived Commonwealth of England following the civil war, is not far behind at number 50.

    Surprisingly Nelson Mandela ranks only 356th well below President Barack Obama at 111th and former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher at 271st.

    William Shakespeare was in fourth place

    Napoleon Bonaparte was in second place

    Lasting impression: William Shakespeare was in fourth place while Napoleon was deemed the second most important person in history

    Steven Skiena, professor of computer science at Stony Brook University, in New York and one of the people behind the programme said the algorithm can also be used to measure social changes, notably the importance of women in society.

    He told the Sunday Times: 'We can prove that women have required substantially greater achievement levels than men - equivalent to around four IQ points - to get noticed for posterity'.

    Mozart is the highest ranking musician on the list at 24th, Beethoven follows in 27th and Bach in 48th.

    Queen Elizabeth I was the highest ranking woman in 13th place, just two behind her father Henry VIII

    Madonna, at 121st trumps Bob Dylan (130th) and John Lennon (162nd), however Elvis reigns as the most famous pop musician in 69th.

    Winston Churchill in 37th place is well beaten by Theodore Roosevelt in 23rd place and even by George W Bush who is one place ahead in 36th.

    Mr Skiena and his colleague Charles Walker, who works as a Google engineer, have published their finding in a new book called Who's Bigger.

    Poor show: David Cameron was found languishing in 1,483rd place
