It’s that time of the year again: Wikipedia has once again revealed what we were all (some of us secretly) looking up over the past 12 months. The online encyclopedia shared their list of the top 50 searches of 2017, which is an interesting insight to the current state of pop culture.
The report includes blockbuster movies, political figures, historical events and…a certain dark entity that goes bump in the night. Topping the list is Deaths in 2017 with 37,387,010 views. It peaked on November 20 following Charles Manson’s death (he landed at No. 34). Donald Trump takes second place, getting 29,644,764 views while peaking on January 20 after his presidential inauguration. Rounding out the top five is Queen Elizabeth II who scored 19,290,956 views (she peaked when Netflix dropped the second season of The Crown), Game of Thrones Season 7 (18,792,746 views) and Meghan Markle (16,944,130 views).
